Mondi is working closely with WWF and industry partners to refine the science and practice behind what WWF calls New Generation Plantations. This project should be completed in 2009 and early indications suggest it could have a very positive impact on the rehabilitation of functioning ecosystems. Mondi is a leader in researching the development of one important mitigation measure: the creation of Ecological Networks (ENs) ; interconnected land corridors or nodes within the plantation landscape that can help to maintain structural, compositional and functional biodiversity. In South Africa, Mondi is working with its empowerment partners and government through SiyaQhubeka Forestry (SQF): the first commercial organisation to delineate an accurate eco-boundary line between a World Heritage site and a forestry plantation. Also Mondi is the principal sponsor of the Mondi Wetlands Programme (MWP). This is a partnership between Mondi and South Africa and the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA)together with the Mazda Wildlife Fund. The project has achieved international recognition for the success in supporting social change that encourages wetland users and owners to manage their wetland resources in a more environmentally relevant manner. To support the sustainable forestry, Mondi certifies all existing Mondi forestry to FSC standards and in 2008 Mondi introduced comprehensive guidelines covering the responsible procurement of wood, virgin fibre and biomass and developed a Wood Information Platform (WIP) to report on wood tracing data. Green Range product family by Mondi intelligently combining quality and environmental awareness. Sustainability is a key element for Mondi, entailing not just the careful selection of raw materials and their suppliers but also the efficient use of energy and the greatest possible reduction of waste and damaging environmental emissions. Mondi is committed to the responsible care of forests, water and air. One demonstration of the sustainability ethos in action is a unique product family by Mondi that cares about the environment, leaf for leaf. Mondi's unique Green Range of products consists entirely of FSC certified office and printing paper from responsibly managed forests (IQ, MAESTRO; BIO TOP 3, Color Copy), totally chlorine-free paper (BIO TOP , IQ TRIOTEC unique and MAESTRO; TRIOTEC TCF) or 100% recycled paper (NAUTILUS; NAUTILUS SuperWhite). It is produced according to the leading environmental and social practices. In line with its focus on sustainability, Mondi continually strives for the responsible use of raw materials and significant reductions in emissions to air, water and land. These elements therefore form the basis for the Green Range and are summarized in the following formula: Forest + Water + Air = Green Range As a paper producer the elements forest, water and air are the ones where Mondi can contribute the most to a responsible usage of these resources. In this context Mondi plants 40 million trees each year to ensure sustained growth, supports the rehabilitation of wetlands in South Africa together with WWF and has reduced specific CO2 emissions by 15%.
