Sustainability Report 2019

28.04.2020: Sustainability is part of Model’s history. It is part of who we are, and it is part of our present. In our eyes, it’s not something that’s located in the future, even though we do set targets for it. We believe that being sustainable means being switched-on and alert, continuously making improvements, whether big or small – without being forced to. It’s something genuine and natural. The joy we gain from leveraging hidden potential puts a smile on our faces day in, day out, enriching our actions in a sustainable way.

Sustainability across generations


As a family-run company, we have been dealing with the challenges of the present and the future for several generations. Since we want our sustainable fundamentals to stay that way, ongoing changes, improvements and adjustments to the most effective points are necessary; in terms of individual integrity, the paper cycle, product quality, resource efficiency, supply chain, occupational safety and our employees.


This report complies with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and aligns the key aspects of the GRI with the four pillars of the Model Group’s sustainability strategy:

  • Quality
  • Environment
  • Employees
  • Supply chain

Our reporting focuses on the steps taken by the Swiss organisation Model AG, as the Model Group’s paper mills are located in Switzerland, and they have the biggest environmental impact of our activities.
