Mondi Aims To Produce Sustainable Packaging

Mondi Group has played a significant role in Proj- ect Proof, a Pioneer Project facilitated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF).The project has created a proof-of-concept prototype flexible plastic pouch incorporating a minimum of 20 percent post-consum- er plastic waste originating from mixed household waste.The pouch is suitable for packaging household products such as detergent. Project Proof is part of Mondi’s commitment to the Ellen MacArthur New Plastics Economy Initiative. It is focused on designing products in line with circular economy principles and has shown that it is possible to use unclean and raw post-consumer recycled content to create new flexible packaging. Mondi will now develop the prototype fur- ther to ensure it can be rolled out as a commercially viable product for its multinational FMCG customers. This will support Mondi’s work as a signatory of the New Plastics Economy Commitment to ensure a min- imum of 25 percent of post-consumer waste is incor- porated across all its flexible plastic packaging where food contact regulations allow by 2025.
