Poland – Sustainable Packaging Year
2011 marked the Year of Sustainable Packaging in Poland.
Smurfit Kappa Poland made extensive efforts to promote awareness, education and appropriate actions with regard to economic, environmental and social aspects of our business.
Committed employees made sure that the sustainable packaging theme not only acted as a guide for colleagues, but also for clients and the surrounding communities.
Together, all employees of Smurfit Kappa Poland took pride in preparing the production facility for and also successfully completing the FSC and PEFC audits. As a result, everyone is now very aware of the origin of the raw materials used at the plant.
Customers were happy to find that detailed analysis of the supply chain resulted in more efficient production processes and less costs in logistics. Many customers and other stakeholders showed great interest in the Sustainable Packaging Conference, which was organised to highlight the theme of the Year. Furthermore, the surrounding local communities benefitted from the focus on sustainability incorporating various educational programmes. Smurfit Kappa Poland organised special sustainability meetings for children and students to conclude the year.
