Big Issue Korea Invites Moorim Paper for a Movie
Moorim Paper’s social contribution activity delivers a heartwarming story.
According to an industry insider, Big Issue Korea, a non-profit corporation, recently held a ‘Thank You Moorim” movie viewing event for Moorim Paper employees at Megabox Gangnam. This event was proposed by Big Issue Korea to thank Moorim Paper for its 13 years of paper sponsorship.
The event was organized mainly for new employees of Moorim Paper in their 20s and 30s to share the company’s CSR direction and social concerns for the underprivileged.
After receiving the ‘Big Issue Korea’ magazine printed with Moorim’s low-carbon paper and a ‘refreshment kit’ packed with eco-friendly paper, the participants watched the recently released movie ‘Dream,’ which depicted the true story of the Homeless World Cup.
Since 2011, when Big Issue was founded, Moorim has fully sponsored the production of the magazine by providing Coated/Uncoated wood-free paper produced at Moorim Paper’s Jinju Factory. In 2017 and 2018, the company organized two ‘Sharing Flashmob’ events to promote the value of sharing and raise social awareness of the homeless. At these events, Moorim’s employees worked together with Big Issue’s salespeople (Bigpan) to pack magazines and share warm feelings.
Having established itself as a ‘low-carbon paper expert’ in the paper market, Moorim is also actively engaged in collaborative projects with leading Korean companies and organizations in the arts and culture sector to promote the eco-friendliness of the paper. Since 2021, the company signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) to sponsor the paper for exhibition brochures, such as those for the retrospective exhibition of the ‘National Painter’ Park Sugeun. Moorim also sponsored printouts and food and beverage containers for the 26th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN), Asia’s largest genre film festival, taking the lead in holding an eco-friendly film festival.
Meanwhile, Moorim, an eco-friendly paper specialist, was the first in the Korean printing paper industry to obtain the ‘Carbon Footprint Certification’ in March 2011, and the first in the paper industry to obtain the ‘Low-Carbon Product Certification’ in April 2013. This is a case of recognition from the Ministry of Environment that Moorim recorded the lowest carbon emissions among domestically produced papers and lead the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Moorim’s printing paper is the only one to be certified as a low-carbon product.
