Creating a sustainable, closed-loop fiber future

Sustana Group has been a leader in sustainable innovation and environmental stewardship for some time. But recycling is only part of the picture. Our three-pronged sustainability strategy prioritizes certain environmental and social issues by focusing on key topics where we know we can act transparently and make a genuine difference.

 

Creating value through sustainability

At Sustana Group, we define success not only by the quality of our products and our ability to meet our customers’ needs, but also by the effect our products and processes have on wildlife, people and the planet. This also means taking a broader view by contributing to social and environmental initiatives, and reinforcing the circular economy.

Goals the planet can get behind

Looking to build a sustainability strategy that is collaborative, relevant and multi-sectoral, we based our goals on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework, adopted in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Environmental Stewardship

We believe in behaving responsibly and being good stewards of the valuable resources that benefit people, drive the economy and belong to everyone. Stewardship is about keeping waste out of landfills and toxins out of the air; using only what we need as efficiently as we can. We apply that principal to every point in the closed-loop journey – from day-to-day operations to strategic direction setting.

Thriving Workplace and Communities

Our renewable products are locally made, and we strive to support the people and communities who have helped make Sustana Group what it is today. From safety programs and diversity training to education and youth initiatives, we are serious about employee safety and community involvement.

Circular Value Chain Fiber Recovery

Fiber recovery and fiber sourcing are a key component of Sustana Group’s operations and long-term vision. Closing the loop on a global level will require introspection and change – and we want to be that change.
