When we talk about sustainability as an inherent part of our corporate culture, we are not talking about a merely subjective value. Successful certifications and continuous re-certifications underscore our adherence to sustainable principles.
Forest management – FSC® / PEFC™
All MM Karton mills are certified according to the international forestry standards systems FSC® and PEFC™. This enables us to provide complete verification that all wood and pulp we use come from responsible forestry, were harvested according to legal regulations, and purchased in compliance with the principles and criteria of the respective standards.
Eco management – ISO 14001
In mills certified according to ISO 14001, regular internal and external audits guarantee the high environmental standard. Mills which are not directly certified use internal environment management systems for continuous improvement and take advantage of the synergies of the certified locations.
Eco management – EMAS
Together with ISO 14001, EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) forms the basis for continued assurance of integrated environmental management at Mayr-Melnhof Karton.
Energy management – ISO 50001
The ISO 50001 standard is a systematic approach to energy management. An international comparison standard serves to measure and optimize the delivery, utilization, and consumption of energy, monitor progress, and determine further energy saving potential.
Hygiene management – EN 15593 (HACCP)
HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) certifications underscore the high hygienic standards imposed on the product and on the production itself. These requirements apply particularly to cartonboard used for food and pharmaceuticals packaging.
Halal-Management – UAE.S 2055
Upon explicit request, MMK cartonboard can be ordered with a Halal certificate. It confirms that during production, there is no contact with objects or use of raw materials that are considered "haram" (= forbidden) in the Muslim view.
