Portals – the only dedicated papermaker to be BnEI accredited

As a partner to many security printers around the world, we are committed to conducting business ethically and we are proud to announce that we have formally been accredited by the Banknote Ethics Initiative (BnEI).

In receiving accreditation, Portals De La Rue (“Portals”) becomes the only dedicated paper supplier to be a current member of BnEI.

BnEI are an independent organisation committed to provide ethical business practice, with a focus on the prevention of corruption and on compliance with anti-trust law within the banknote industry. During the last five years it has become the defacto standard within the banknote industry and is now relied on by governments, central banks and security printers to ensure their suppliers are compliant with the highest ethical standards.

Commenting on this achievement, Louise Thompson, Commercial Director said, “Our customers rely on independent validation of our ethical standards as assurance that they are placing their business with the right company. We are extremely proud of achieving this benchmark and our standing as the only dedicated paper maker to hold this accreditation.”
