FORESTATION /

We choose to protect our territory by planting and managing trees and forests in a sustainable way.

At Cartiere Carrara, we believe sustainability is a key value not only for our business, but first and foremost for the future of our planet. That’s why, in 2020, we launched two major forestation projects in collaboration with Compagnia delle Foreste and Rete Clima: “KilometroverdeLucca” and “Polycyclic Plantations”. One of our goals is to reintroduce selected plant species in our territory, protecting and taking care of these new areas over time.

Sustainability has always been at the heart
of our business, as a concrete development strategy
to safeguard the resources of tomorrow, today.

The Cartiere Carrara Group celebrates 150 years of history.

With the acquisition of the Caldaroni Group, the Cartiere Carrara Group is born, paving the way for new growth and future goals.

The Carrara family’s activities are brought back together under the aegis of Cartiere Carrara S.p.A., thus unifying their resources and consolidating their position in the industry.

Mario Carrara’s branch of the family decides to resume the activities previously excluded from the 2002 transfer, starting from Cartiera Carma, of which it had always maintained exclusive ownership. With fresh new impetus, the family re-enters the professional and consumer tissue market.

The turn of the millennium brings new opportunities. Cartoinvest is sold to the multinational SCA.

Cartoinvest becomes the exclusive licensee of the Kleenex brand for Europe, thus confirming its leadership in the European tissue market.

The Cartoinvest Group is founded, and takes control of no less than twelve companies in Italy and in Europe, further strengthening their presence and influence in the industry.

The historical plant in Pietrabuona starts its first continuous machine for tissue paper, introducing remarkable technological innovations in the manufacturing process.

The Carrara family makes its debut in the paper manufacturing business, opening a paper mill in Pietrabuona to make straw paper.
