Endangered Wildlife Trust and Mondi partner to map biodiversity footprints in South African forestry operations

The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT), one of the largest biodiversity conservation NGOs in southern Africa, and Mondi, a global packaging and paper producer, announced a three-year partnership to map biodiversity footprints in Mondi South Africa’s forestry operations.

This partnership will include a pilot assessment of the biodiversity footprint of Mondi’s operations in South Africa using the EWT’s Biological Diversity Protocol (BD Protocol). The BD Protocol is an accounting framework that consolidates site-based biodiversity data to calculate any company’s total, negative and positive biodiversity footprints, allowing users to set meaningful targets and track changes on the ground and disclose these to stakeholders.

“By working together with Mondi, we can reduce their business risks and enhance the protection of habitats and species.” Dr Gabi Teren, National Biodiversity and Business Network Programme Manager at the EWT

Mondi is also part of the EWT’s National Biodiversity and Business Network, which aims to galvanise business action, generate positive biodiversity footprints, and catalyse meaningful change for species and ecosystems.
