Mondi has been recognized in two categories at the Sustainable Packaging News Awards 2022 for the circular economy and the overall category.
The awards, presented by Sustainable Packaging News magazine, recognize environmentally friendly and innovative packaging and recycling solutions as well as packaging-related improvements in operational processes such as production, logistics and distribution.
The Tesco shopping bags, made from EcoVantage paper produced at Mondi’s Steti mill in the Czech Republic, show how suppliers can work with retailers to develop circular systems and turn waste back into a valuable resource.
Mondi’s collaboration with the retailer aims to close the loop by working across the entire supply chain. As part of the partnership, Mondi recycles corrugated packaging waste generated at Tesco and turns it into EcoVantage paper. Mondi’s converting network then produces the shopping bags, which Tesco Central Europe customers use for its shopping. This partnership helps Tesco work toward its net zero emissions target using a recyclable and high-performing shopping bag.
