THE WAY TO BE CIRCULAR
A life cycle perspective is crucial
Unlike a linear economy, a circular economy takes a holistic approach to sustainability. While the end-of-life stage is crucial, we must also consider upstream and manufacturing activities, handling the entire life cycle. The choice of raw materials is essential because recycling alone won't solve the climate crisis.
At Duni Group, we find renewable just as valuable as recyclable. Each recycling cycle requires an input of new material, which should be renewable. This way, we can leave the fossil resources where they belong, in the ground.
SDGs connected to the initiative
With dramatically increasing raw material use in society, it is vital to ensure sustainable consumption and production. Also, production requires energy and other resources, and many materials are not recycled. We must separate economic growth from resource use.
SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
All companies must make active choices. Duni Group commits to choosing more sustainable materials, using renewable energy sources for production, and working for viable end-of-life solutions for our products.
SDG 15: Life on Land
Renewable paper fibers from the forest are an increasingly essential raw material for Duni Group. But forests must also be protected, managed, and restored to be a sustainable raw material source. Therefore, we prioritize FSC®-certified raw materials that promote responsible forestry practices.
