2010 was a milestone year for the international paper and packaging group, marking the end of a five-year sustainable development commitment period, during which time Mondi has achieved or almost achieved all of its key environmental, forestry, social and governance commitments.

  Recognised as best paper company for carbon disclosure by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in FTSE 350 and JSE 100
  Included in FTSE4Good and JSE SRI indices for the fourth year running

  First forestry property proclaimed as a nature reserve: Gilboa estate, South Africa
  Lost-time injury frequency rate reduced by 18 per cent
  Investment of EUR12.6 million in corporate social investment projects

The report also highlights the most material issues to the business and to its stakeholders, which were identified through stakeholder engagement and Mondi's intensive risk management processes. These issues are: ensuring that appropriate governance is in place at all levels of the Group; producing sought-after products in a responsible manner; securing continued access to raw materials in a resource-constrained world; attracting, retaining and caring for employees; achieving and maintaining a licence to operate through responsible management of operations and their impacts; and consideration for host communities.

Mondi's online Sustainable Development Report 2010 and printed Sustainable Development Review 2010 have been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative's (GRI) G3 guidelines to a B+ level. The compliance of these reports with GRI G3 guidelines' application level B requirements has been assured by external auditor ERM. The reports have also been checked by GRI.
