            [translation] - "Corrugated cardboard is the main packaging material of Arcor Group. It represents more than 50% of the tonnes of packaging material used. In addition, in 2013 the Group defined a policy of paper supply, which set a goal so that in 2022 100% of the virgin paper used, comes from sources sustainable with recognized certification (FSC, PEFC or IFS). During 2020, we are close to the fulfillment of this goal by reaching 100% certified paper in Argentina, Brazil and Chile, which, together with the level reached in Mexico, achieves 96% of the virgin material used by Grupo Arcor is of origin from sustainable sources."

            [Translation] - "In addition to producing virgin paper in Misiones, through its Packaging Division Grupo Arcor has three plants of production of recycled paper in Argentina, in Arroyito (Córdoba), Mendoza and Ranelagh (Buenos Aires), which generate altogether more than 160,000 tons of paper per year recycled, representing more than a quarter of the volume total of this material that is recycled in Argentina. This allows the paper and cardboard used by the Division Packaging for the production of packaging containing, in average, 70% recycled material in its composition. The different technological developments in the production of recycled paper made in the Group have been enabling the substitution in the use of virgin material for material recycled in uses that previously did not allow it."
