LEIPA launches new environmental signets

Following extensive data evaluation of recycled paper manufacturing at its Schwedt paper mill, LEIPA has launched four new signets.

LEIPA launches new environmental signets

As the world continues to fight the current pandemic, the larger challenge of combatting the onset of climate change is upon us, says LEIPA.

Sustainable Consumption and Production, Sustainable Development Goal Number 12 is a ‘hot topic’, says the company, as the focus on manufacturers to scrutinise their production techniques continues to grow.

LEIPA says: “Despite being an energy intensive process, papermaking has largely been left without public analysis due to the recyclability and high recovery rates of paper substrate. However, that is no longer enough. Sourcing of raw material, production methods, water and energy consumption are all vital considerations when choosing your next paper supplier.”

Since the 1970s, LEIPA began using sustainable raw material recovered paper for its production, initially for cardboard and packaging papers, and since 1994, also for Graphic Papers.

To demonstrate its commitment to the environment, LEIPA has launched four new signets. These signets represent savings made producing LEIPA Graphic Paper portfolio versus BAT values of the EU virgin fibre paper production.

Transparency, clear and concise messaging, and tangible impact reporting can be achieved with the use of these simple tools, says the company: “Sustainability is no fad for LEIPA. It is an integral part of the DNA and involves the entire value chain.”
