Kazakhstan Kagazy Group is not only famous for its business performance, but also for its corporate social responsibility policy and its reverence for the environment. Kagazy Recycling – Kazakhstan Kagazy subsidiary company - is the largest recycler and producer of paper, packaging products and corrugated cardboard in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. It is a vertically integrated business with a full production cycle from its own waste paper collection to production of corrugated packaging. The company activity is green by its nature, as the company produces paper only from the recycled waste paper.
In 2012 Kazakhstan Kagazy and Kagazy Recycling launched a social ecological project - Going Green.
Project mission is to create conditions for well-being of all citizens of Kazakhstan through sustainable environmental development.
The main goal of the project is to grow the business in a sustainable way by increasing waste paper collection throughout the country as well as remaining environmentally friendly.
The company set a number of environmental objectives: to increase waste paper collection up to 100, 000 tons annually, to become the leading green company in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, and to form a network of project partners around Kazakhstan. Every day Kazakhstan Kagazy is confidently moving forward towards its goals.
For the company Going Green is more than just a project – it’s a concept that the company follows in all its activities, a continuous process of developing as a profitable BUT environmentally friendly company.
Every citizen of Kazakhstan may contribute to our Going green initiative and take part in the waste paper collection project. Statistical data suggest that in Almaty alone 45 percent of printed matter is thrown away every day. It is worth noting that a ton of printed matter can save 12 trees.
