The Mayr-Melnhof Group (MM) has joined the global initiative “Business Ambition for 1.5 ° C” in order to use suitable measures to help limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. As part of this platform, which was launched by the UN Global Compact and the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), MM is committed to setting science-based climate targets. These provide for net zero emissions in the entire value chain by 2050 at the latest. MM is thus increasing the pace of its engagement against climate change at the time of important global milestones such as the UN climate conference COP26.
Peter Oswald, CEO of the MM Group: “MM is a sustainability company that is at the forefront of avoiding plastic waste with innovative recyclable packaging made from renewable raw materials. In addition, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate climate change is an integral and fixed part of our corporate strategy. That is why we set ourselves ambitious, science-based goals and take an active part in the Business Ambition for 1.5 ° C initiative in order to jointly promote climate-friendly economic activity. “
MM is Europe’s leading producer of cardboard and folding boxes with an attractive range of Uncoated Fine Papers and Packaging Kraft Papers. The focus is on sustainable and innovative fiber-based packaging solutions. Including its most recent acquisitions, MM generates sales of around EUR 3.2 billion and employs around 12,500 people.
