CAMPAIGN: Sustainability Update 2016

CONTENT: Article

We strive to play a responsible and active role in the communities in which we operate around the world, getting involved at a local level through a wide range of initiatives.

Our community engagement work is often based on longstanding connections, such as our partnership with the World Wildlife Fund. With them, we are supporting smallholders in plantations around the world, boosting capacity and helping them develop the competences they need to manage forests effectively. In China, for example, we are supporting the establishment of the China Sustainable Paper Alliance and the roll-out of a Sustainable Paper Campaign later in 2016. In Indonesia, we are working with local NGOs to raise awareness of sustainable sourcing, including through the revamped Eyes on the Forest website.

We also maintain strong links with a number of charities. Over the past few years, we have donated €250,000 to Hand-in-Hand, an international non-profit organization that aims to reduce poverty through social mobilization and business training, and a further €150,000 to support a poverty reduction project run by Caritas in Kenya. We are also partners to Mentor, a leading international NGO fighting drug use and substance abuse throughout the world, as well as supporting FoodBank in Australia.
