MM Group has signed a collaboration agreement with the organisers of the alpine skiing event World Cup Levi.
Levi is hosting the FIS World Cup women’s slalom event for the second year in a row. The event will take place on 19 - 21 November. Food and beverages at World Cup Levi will be served in cups and trays made from MM Group’s Finnish subsidiary MM Kotkamills’ eco-friendly, fully recyclable board.
“Sustainability is very important to both collaboration parties, and we are working persistently to advance it. We are pleased that the Levi event organisers are using eco-friendly, natural products, easy to use and then fully recycled,” says Clemens Stockinger, Managing Director, Sales & Marketing, MM Board & Paper.
“We want to advance sustainability in every way possible. We have been putting our attention on creating a responsible sporting event already for many years. The precious nature of the North puts great demands on our operations in terms of responsibility. Our goal is to make the event as eco-friendly and responsible as possible in all respects. The collaboration with MM Group fits perfectly in this wholeness,” says Iiro Kaukoniemi, Secretary General of World Cup Levi.
“Responsibility is one of our core values, and we expect it from our partners as well. Building an ecologically more sustainable operating culture is always based on collaboration,” claims Saila Kettunen, Vice President, Sustainability & Communications from MM Kotkamills.
