Caring for life /

Cartiere Carrara has decided to make a tangible contribution to environmental protection and to the transition towards a circular economy, sustainable economic growth, and social wellbeing.

The company has embraced the UN’s 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and the Green Deal promoted by the European Union. The main elements from both have been included in Cartiere Carrara’s manifesto, and implemented in practice through a sustainability plan.

OUR MANIFESTO /

We have written a manifesto to represent the universe of our values in 10 points, expressing in concrete terms how we want to make a tangible contribution to environmental protection, sustainable economic growth, and social wellbeing, while preserving our connection with the territory and building relationships of trust with all stakeholders. This is our pledge for a better future, aiming to achieve concrete and measurable goals by 2030.

SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

Safety in the workplace, enhancement of human capital and of the relations with the territory.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Efficient use of materials,
energy self-production, reduction of
energy consumption, efficient use of
water resources, and reduction of waste.

FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

Protection of future generations, enhancement
of the specificity of local products and services.

We formally adopted these by including them in a Code of Ethics that establishes the values and corporate principles we set as a reference for not only our shareholders, directors and employees, but also our partners, collaborators and suppliers.

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.
