Our Values

Creating positive impact has always been at the heart of our culture as a company. Our strategic approach really began in 2000, when we rolled out our Social and Ethical Compliance blueprint across our global supply base.

We are committed to working with leading industry eco-communities to further develop our preferred fibre portfolio, and improving industry practices to bring positive environmental and societal changes for our communities.

Our Vision

Our vision always has and will always be anchored in People, Passion, and Partnership.
