A greener, bluer planet

The circular economy is at the core of our business. We use renewable, recyclable, recycled and biodegradable materials to create sustainable packaging solutions. We play a part in ensuring that at their end of life, our products are recycled. Our four areas of focus are:

 Forest

Forest

 We balance the use of virgin and recycled fibres to maintain a positive and sustainable balance of renewable raw materials. We have committed to a complete Chain of Custody certified sourcing and manufacturing chain, from fibres to our packaging solutions.

 Climate-change-icon

Climate Change

We are stepping up our ambition with low-carbon and energy-efficient production systems, and increasing our use of renewable fuels. We are targeting at least Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050 and have accelerated our medium-term carbon reduction targets, which have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We also offer our customers optimised packaging solutions that help support their sustainability targets and reduce CO2 emissions in their value chain.

 Water

Water

We are committed to responsible water stewardship. We focus our efforts on continually improving the quality of water we discharge, decreasing our water intake and understanding the risks associated with water availability in the areas where we operate.

 Waste

Waste

Our products are specifically designed to protect the goods they package. Our main raw material itself is circular by nature, and we strive to eliminate all waste and keep removing the remaining linear elements from our processes.
