Protecting our planet

At Smurfit Kappa, sustainability is in our every fibre. We have a deep commitment to the planet and we believe that we must always do our best to help protect our planet. Not only do we strive for this through our products and operations, but our teams are also committed to this on a local level. Our activities can be seen from tackling litter, to recycling to promoting and protecting our local ecosystems.



A snapshot of the 'Protecting our planet' initiatives that are taking place in our local communities

Smurfit Kappa Germany
We were delighted when our Experience Centre in Waren, Germany, was awarded the Environmental Prize of the City for our resource saving and sustainable packaging. We decided to increase the value of the prize, and donate it to 3 local primary schools to support the young talents of tomorrow.
Smurfit Kappa North America
The Smurfit Kappa Houston plant and the Windsor Village Elementary School have been partners since 2019. On Sunday 25th April, 2021, our Houston employees visited the Windsor Village Elementary School to help them clean up their landscape as part of Earth Day activities.
Smurfit Kappa Ireland
For World Cleanup Day, the employees of Smurfit Kappa Arklow and their kids got involved cleaning up their local area. They painted and cleaned a communal area opposite the plant and the children got creative and painted and erected bird boxes as well as bat, bee, bird and butterfly boxes.
Smurfit Kappa United Kingdom
Our colleagues in the Stalybridge site decided that they wanted to give back to the local community, and also raise awareness of the importance of looking after the environment. To do this, they donned their high vis’ jackets and donated their time and energy to tidy the local area on World Cleanup Day.
