What sustainability means to PaperlinX
Sustainable development is most often defined as ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’. For PaperlinX and its operating companies, this means achieving sustainable economic growth of benefit to present and future generations of employees, shareholders and customers without detrimentally affecting the resources or biological systems of the planet.
This Sustainability Report covers the operations of PaperlinX Limited’s businesses and its social and environmental commitments for the period July 2008 to June 2009. It aims to broadly report against the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines for sustainability reporting that encourage tracking and measure performance through disclosure. All data reported has been collected and validated through internal financial and environmental management systems and is available for auditing purposes.
