Mondi’s 2018 Sustainable Development Report has been recognised for its best-in-class approach by the WBCSD. The WBCSD analysed Mondi’s 2018 Sustainable Development Report as part of Reporting Matters, a worldwide analysis of 159 corporate sustainability reports designed to drive effectiveness of sustainability reporting. Mondi was recognised for being among the top ten of reports globally.
Andy Beanland, Director, Redefining Value, World Business Council for Sustainable Development said, ‘We have reviewed Mondi’s sustainability report every year since we started Reporting matters in 2013. During that time, they have made significant improvements across all 18 of our indicators and continue to be an example of good reporting practice within the WBCSD membership. We will look forward to seeing how their report develops in 2020.’
Mondi’s Sustainable Development Report received praise for its audience-led approach to reporting and tailoring content for different audiences. The Mondi report is highlighted as a category leader for its ‘Accessibility’, including praise for its complementary web content, the interactive online version of the report, as well as producing an Integrated Report primarily targeted for shareholders. The WBCSD further recognised Mondi for being one of the strongest examples of disclosure on sustainability governance and transparency in its communication of sustainability topics and decisions made by the Board.
‘Sustainability is embedded in everything we do at Mondi and we see accurate sustainability reporting as vital to this,’ said Gladys Naylor, group head of sustainable development.
Ashleigh Gay, director of sustainability at Radley Yeldar said, ‘We’ve worked with the team at Mondi for many years on their sustainability and integrated reporting. They consistently strive to communicate Mondi’s financial and non-financial performance in a credible and compelling way. Ultimately, the award-winning reporting suite continues to be a model for striking a balance between the needs of specialist and generalist audiences.’
