means innovation, progress and evolution – every day, in a measurable, transparent way.
Sustainability is a challenge and a goal. It implies an increasingly ecological approach, continuous improvement of the production cycle, and the development of products that are at once creative and ecological. Reaching ambitious aims to preserve the environment, which includes the raw materials for paper, requires investment that in turn leads to competitive advantage. With awareness of sustainability growing internationally, a company whose choices are based on respect for the environment acquires trustworthiness for being forward-thinking and capable of producing added value.
This value is given by concrete action and ambitious industrial choices aimed at a circular economy. myCordenons uses wood pulp from responsibly managed forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council FSC® (FSC- C012975), and reuses materials left over from the production process. Noteworthy results have been obtained thanks to collaboration with qualified suppliers aligned with the corporate philosophy; and thanks to a team of employees whose competencies are continually developing in an inclusive workplace where talent is fostered.
In 2020, the myCordenons production plants were the protagonists of frontline research and innovation, an important initiative to detect and analyse the risks of machinery and manufacturing procedures. After a meticulous preparation phase to define the most effective evaluation method, the project was applied to production and coating lines at the myCordenons mill. Analysis will now be conducted at the eight other paper production plants belonging to Fedrigoni Group.
The wide range of offerings at myCordenons includes a paper category called Blu&Green, which collects all papers containing recycled fibre. This versatile portfolio features products built on environmental, social and governance (E.S.G.) considerations, three major factors by which to measure the sustainability of an investment.
