|Arjowiggins Graphic recognised by WWF for global leadership in transparency
Arjowiggins Graphic, a leader in the development of environmental paper solutions, has been named as one of the 25 pulp and paper manufacturers which have followed WWF´s invitation to show leadership in transparency in the WWF Environmental Paper Company Index 2013.
Through this index, WWF recognises Arjowiggins Graphic for promoting transparency on its ecological footprint for the production of pulp. WWF welcomes that by doing so, Arjowiggins Graphic demonstrates that it is taking environmental and social responsibility seriously.
The EPCI is one of WWF’s key tools to promote transparency and to motivate continual improvement in the sector. The index identifies a company’s impact on forest ecosystems from fibre sourcing, its emissions from manufacturing processes and corporate transparency. The results offer independent analysis of the paper industry that can help businesses to make an informed purchasing decision.
Agnes Roger, Chief Executive, Arjowiggins Graphic, commented on the inclusion: “We are incredibly proud to be part of the WWF's Environmental Paper Company Index as it is an extremely relevant and important part of measuring Arjowiggins Graphic's environmental credentials. The EPCI has helped us to set ambitious goals and targets that have constantly pushed Arjowiggins Graphic to operate in a sustainable and transparent way.”
Emmanuelle Neyroumande, Manager of WWF International’s pulp and paper work added: “We are pleased that has Arjowiggins taken this opportunity to disclose their sustainability performance and targets. The robust participation in this year´s Index shows a real interest by the companies in working towards reducing their ecological footprint.”
