Economic Sustainability

Economic sustainability is about maintaining and sustaining economic balance within an organisation and the economies of its stakeholders.

At Australian Paper, we play a significant role in contributing to the health of our local, regional, state and national economies.

Our estimated annual contribution to the Australian economy is $754 million in value-add, $661.1 million in value add to the Victorian economy, and $30.2 million in value-add to the New South Wales economy.

Australian Paper’s economic contribution reached even greater heights with the construction our recycling plant at our Maryvale Mill in Victoria. The new state of the art facility supports more than 240 local full time jobs and contributing $50.7 million per annum to the Australian economy.

Our Economic Impact Report and 2013 Sustainability Report provide further details about our contribution to the communities in which we operate.
