We strongly believe in being a part of the communities in which we are privileged to operate.

Smurfit Kappa has a deep commitment to supporting the communities in which we live and work and championing the vulnerable. Our work in this area is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2022, our employees have thrown themselves wholeheartedly into raising much-needed funds to help the people of Ukraine and taking part in many brave and creative initiatives to support this very worthy cause.

We also celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Smurfit Kappa Foundation which funds so many life-changing projects particularly in the areas of poverty, children in need, health and nutrition, education and basic care.
