THE ENTIRE LIFECYCLE
Bong actively supports the environment through the entire lifecycle of envelopes and packaging, from conversion of ﬁne paper to recycling. Key environmental issues include the origins of raw forestry products, production of ﬁne paper and conversion to envelopes and packaging, transports to and from our production units and product consumption and recycling.
BONG IS WORKING ACTIVELY TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY:
• We continuously work to improve production methods to minimize the environmental impact of emissions
• We work with suppliers and customers to design their products with priority on the eco-cycle approach and conservation of natural resources
• Through information and communication we continuously raise the knowledge and awareness of environmental issues among all employees
As Bong is a pan-European company working in more than 16 markets we carry a variety of certifications, corresponding to the environmental certifications available in our local markets. We comply with the environmental laws and rules that apply in each country.
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
We are working with the objective that all plants in the Group will be certified with ISO 14001. To date half of our total number of production-sites are certified with ISO 14001.
A number of Bong plants also carry FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification.
