Sustainability Strategy

Over the next three to five years, we will continue to face many economic, environmental and social challenges. Economic challenges include the diversification and upgrading of pulp and paper products, and the increase in value-added products. In terms of the environment, the government, NGOs, customers and the community have all put forward their higher expectations of us. In terms of society, we are facing how to better protect the rights and interests of our employees, consumers and the community.

Our Mission: Improving lives by developing resourses sustainably.

Our Vision: To be one of the largest, best-managed and sustainable resource-based groups, creating value for the Community, Country, Climate, Customer and Company.

Based on the principles of Triple Bottom Line, we have developed our sustainability strategy:
