Mondi : Discovering the Ecosystem Value of Ecological Networks in Developed Landscapes


23 September, 2012


Case Study


High-yielding commercial forestry plantations provide the sustainable raw material for Mondi’s pulp mill in South Africa. The implementation of Forest Stewardship Council –FSC™ – certification and New Generation Plantation (NGP) principles have minimized the impact of these plantations on biodiversity and freshwater systems, but careful mitigation of these impacts is required. Ecological networks are proving to be an important mitigation factor. As part of a commitment to land and freshwater stewardship, Mondi is demonstrating responsible practices to its stakeholders because securing access to sustainable fiber is fundamental to its business.
