In the decade since it started formally measuring its sustainability impact, Smurfit Kappa reached full Chain of Custody certification for its entire raw material supply chain. At the same time it has cut CO₂ emissions by 23% and the quality of its discharge water improved by 32%, both on track for its 2020 target of 25% and 33% respectively. Smurfit Kappa’s sustainability report, which measures year-on-year progress with a focus on five priority areas (Forest, Climate Change, Water, Waste and People), shows that over the past ten years the packaging giant has also achieved a significant reduction in the amount of waste sent to landfill and has invested €60 million in water treatment plants. click Read More below for additional detail
Since its launch in April 2021, over 30 North American brands have used Carbon Balanced Paper to balance over 37 million pounds of CO2 and help protect 2,290 acres of critical forest habitat.
The program funds four key projects, each one protecting a vast range of threatened animal and plant species. Find out more about each project and the vital work of World Land Trust and its local partners.
Located in the south-east of Ecuador, Nangaritza Valley provides a rich habitat for a spectacular range of animals, including rare and threatened bird and mammal species, as well as an abundance of amphibians and reptiles. The area also has some of the highest levels of plant diversity in the world, with 40% of plant species unique to the region.
The coastal forests of Guatemala are one of the most beautiful areas of the world, but they are under threat from deforestation and private construction. Now, less than 20% of lowland forest remains in Guatemala due to cattle ranching, agriculture, and commercial logging.
High in the mountains of the Sierra Madre Oriental, the forests of Sierra de Xilitla are under constant threat from wildfires and timber extraction, putting the local ecosystem in significant danger. As well as their high biological value, these forests act as a protective buffer to the neighbouring forests of Sierra Gorda and play a significant role in the formation of clouds and microclimates.
The Khe Nuoc Trong forest in Central Vietnam contains some of the largest remaining tracts of the Annamese Lowland Forest, one of the most important areas in the world in terms of ecology and wildlife. Estimated to contain around 10% of the world’s animal and plant species, its endangered inhabitants include the Southern White-Cheeked Gibbon, the Red-Shanked Douc Langur, and the spectacular Crested Argus bird.
