Environment

Investments with sincerity.

We’re rooted in our homeland and proud of our location. That’s why it goes without saying that we minimize our consumption of natural resources and that all our activities are in harmony with respect for the environment.

Gmund and their customers abide by the terms of the Environmental Charta, which obliges them to uphold the four pillars of environmental protection in the paper industry. Water consumption is continually reduced through efficient optimization measures. Only Gmund treats its industrial water with ozone and entirely without chemicals. Gmund’s papers are FSC®-certified (FSC-C006462). Waste is separately collected and recycled. Thanks to in-house facilities, we produce up to 75% of our electrical current through water power, solar energy and power-heat coupling – without generating CO2.

Customers can show their commitment to the environment by putting the eco certificate’s logo on their printed materials and on their homepage. The logo is available free of charge by request from Ms. Elisabeth Birmoser, ebirmoser@gmund.com.

Using paper from Gmund actively contributes toward protecting our environment.

Gmund has been FSC®-certified (FSC-C006462) since July 2006. Nothing but FSC®-certified and verified materials are used in the manufacturing of all papers from Gmund and lakepaper. You can download the Gmund FSC® certificate below.

A fundamental policy of the Gmund Paper Mill is not to participate, either directly or indirectly, in any of the following unacceptable activities:

  • Illegal logging or trading with illegally harvested wood or wood products
  • Infringements against traditional rights and human rights in forestry operations
  • Destruction of specially protected areas in forested regions
  • Large-scale transformation of naturally grown forests into plantations or non-forestry operations
