Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a universal call aiming to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. It was adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. By considering the nature of our operations and their impacts, we have identified 11 goals that are most relevant for our business and our stakeholders. We have chosen goal number 12, responsible consumption and production, as our main goal, because there we can have the biggest positive impact through our core business.
We use paper and cardboard products every day. To ensure that forests renew and grow, it is important that they are sustainably maintained. Our goal is to use 100% of the wood fiber from recycled or certified sustainable sources.
The OPRL has announced today that paper cups will have their own specialist recycling label in the UK to support the wide range of paper cup recycling programs including in store and on-street, office, workplace and industry collections.
