What drives us?
Brands that think ecologically and mean it.

Saying no to plastic!

We say a resounding No! to plastic. The dream of a plastic-free world may be naïve – but dreams help us to brave new paths. We’re ready to forge radical new paths for the environment, together with companies and brands.

Our team

In 2020, a team of specialists and practitioners ventured Greenfibra Labs, the spin-off of the Gmund Paper, and placed it as a separate business unit with concentrated know-how. Using our expertise in fibre technology, material analysis, paper production, ecology, printing and packaging technology, sensor technology and green communication, we advise our customers all the way from the initial idea to the finished product.
