Smurfit Kappa Listed on Ethibel Sustainability Index for 5th Consecutive Year

Global paper packaging company Smurfit Kappa has been reconfirmed as a member of the Ethibel Sustainability Index for the 5th year in a row, demonstrating its continued best-in-class approach to sustainability.

The Ethibel Sustainability Indices are composed of companies included in the Russell Global Index displaying the best performance in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The selections are largely based on research carried out by Vigeo Eiris, a European rating agency responsible for data collecting and processing, performance and industry benchmarking.

Speaking about the listing, Steven Stoffer, Group VP Development at Smurfit Kappa, said: “We invest a lot of time and resources into making sure that we continue to lead the way as a sustainable packaging supplier. We’re proud that Ethibel has recognised our work and commitment by including Smurfit Kappa in its Sustainability Index again this year.”

The listing comes as Smurfit Kappa continues to make sustainable investments and commitments. The group released its Sustainable Development Report in May this year, and has recently announced the launch of its Better Planet Packaging initiative which seeks to explore and re-imagine the packaging needed for a more sustainable world.
