Encouraging Wellbeing

We are proud of the efforts and contributions our teams make at a local level to support the many wonderful initiatives that take place. We have shown ourselves to be an energetic, committed and sporting organisation through the many activities over the last year.  



A snapshot of how we're getting active for our communities

Smurfit Kappa United Kingdom

Mental health is a cause that is close to the hearts of our Stalybridge colleagues in the UK. They decided to raise funds for The Anthony Seddon Fund - a community charity that offers support to those who have been affected by mental health issues. To fundraise, the team organised a charity car wash and had great fun on the day too.

Smurfit Kappa Costa Rica
Smurfit Kappa Costa Rica supported the return of the students to school by developing cardboard dividers for the students’ desks, to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 within the classroom. Our colleagues have a strong relationship with the community school, Escuela Villalobos, who they've supported in the past on issues of road safety, waste management and recycling.
Smurfit Kappa Slovakia
Along with a financial donation from the Smurfit Kappa Foundation, our colleagues in Slovakia decided to donate their time and energy to improve the grounds of the club, put down a fence and clean the river bank so that local children could have their training sessions in a cleaner and safer environment.  
Smurfit Kappa Mexico
Supporting the local community is very important to the Tijuana plant in Mexico. As well as promoting the Castro Limón Foundation virtual bike ride, employees were encouraged to buy souvenirs provided by the Foundation, or make direct donations. There was a huge response and we were able to donate funds to provide important cancer treatment for children.
