At APR, we understand that sustainability does not work without transparency. Both are necessary for continuous improvement in responsible manufacturing. As a result of our commitment to become a leading responsible viscose manufacturer, we are making transparent the critical sustainability performance indicators on our sustainability dashboard.

The indicators were chosen based on what is required by internationally recognised standards and also our commitments and core values. The dashboard focuses on pulp sourcing, responsible manufacturing and programmes to support our people and communities.

APR’s inaugural sustainability progress report. Sustainability has been a core focus in our first 18 months of operations.
