Sustainable development is a core principle in all facets of our operations and activities.

The Board

The Board has overall responsibility for ensuring that we play an appropriate role in promoting a realistically sustainable development agenda in the paper-based packaging sector. The development and implementation of our policies in this area are sponsored by our Group CEO.

Group Steering Committee

At an executive management level, a Group Steering Committee sets out the strategy and objectives for sustainable development and reviews the progress made in meeting our commitments. This committee comprises the most senior executives in the Company, including the three executive directors (Group CEO, Group COO and Group CFO) the management from each division and senior staff managers from the Group head office.

Sustainability Working Group

The Group Steering Committee is supported by a Sustainability Working Group comprising key representatives from each of the main operating divisions in Europe and the Americas as well as from head office. The Working Group’s task is to monitor the achievement of targets across a wide range of sustainability indicators and to promote the theme of sustainable improvement in our interface with customers, suppliers and the general environment. The Working Group is also responsible for the preparation and production of our annual Sustainable Development Report.


We have a series of codes of conducts and policies covering a number of areas relating to our operational and managerial practices.
