Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, received the Cradle to Cradle certification at Bronze level for its fine uncoated papers produced in its mills in Austria, Slovakia, and Russia.

Mondi is thus the first to offer an extensive uncoated fine paper portfolio as Cradle to Cradle certified, meeting the high standards and demanding requirements of this certification scheme which marks the step from a linear to a circular economy. This includes Mondi’s well-known professional printing brands Color Copy and Pergraphica and its range of Nautilus, branded recycled papers, and a wide office paper portfolio.

Mondi to create circular-driven solutions for its consumers 

“We are proud to kick off the year with this strong sustainability achievement underlining our Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030) commitment to create circular-driven solutions. For many years, Mondi has been a leader and often a pioneer in the sustainability of its fine uncoated papers. For example, Color Copy became the world’s first FSCTM certified color laser paper in 2005. Thanks to our new Cradle to Cradle certification, our customers have a uniquely wide choice of products to support the environment and contribute to the circular economy without sacrificing quality or price,” said Devan Naidoo, marketing and sales director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.

The Cradle to Cradle certified products program is a globally recognized standard for safe, responsible materials and products made for the circular economy. The holistic approach follows nature’s principle of keeping materials and resources in circulation and eliminating waste. The Cradle awards the Cradle to Cradle certification to Cradle Products Innovation Institute dedicated to powering the circular economy through products that positively impact people and the planet.

The program assesses five categories of sustainability performance – material health, product circularity, clean air, 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 the overall level of the final certification.




In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
