The Cradle to Cradle certification is awarded by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute dedicated to powering the circular economy through products that have a positive impact on people and planet. The programme assesses five categories of sustainability performance: material health, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship, and social fairness. Mondi's uncoated fine paper portfolio has been assessed across all five categories, reaching levels from Gold to Bronze, thereby being Bronze the overall level of the final certification.
