Huhtamaki as a sustainable investment
Value enhancement through sustainability
At Huhtamaki, sustainability is an integral part of our strategy and everyday work. As a global solutions provider in food on-the-go and food on-the-shelf packaging, Huhtamaki is fully committed to sustainability as one the strongest transformative opportunities for our stakeholders and customers. We believe that Huhtamaki can only be successful in the long term by creating value both for our shareholders and for society.
Packaging creates value by securing hygiene, food availability and food safety for consumers around the globe. In addition, with an increasing focus on the future of the planet, packaging also plays an instrumental role in reducing food waste, which remains by far the biggest environmental impact from food systems on climate change. Also, thanks to today’s digital breakthroughs, packaging also offers solutions including traceability of products and efficient circularity. Our customers, consumers, communities and the planet need our sustainable packaging solutions more than ever before. We remain committed to our ambition to become the world’s preferred choice in sustainable packaging solutions.
Huhtamaki is taking a leading role within the food packaging industry in addressing the global challenges of circularity and climate change. Acknowledging that packaging has a significant role to play, Huhtamaki is raising the bar across its activities and setting high sustainability ambitions. We want to become world-class in all three areas of sustainability: environmental, social and governance.
First choice in sustainable packaging solutions
Our ambition is to be the first choice in sustainable packaging solutions by 2030. To achieve this ambition, we strive to do business in a financially, environmentally, and socially responsible way.

We aim to minimize the negative impacts of our operations and products on the environment while maximizing the positive impacts on our stakeholders, consumers and society.
As a company, Huhtamaki continuously works to improve our social, environmental and economic impact. Our journey towards our 2030 ambitions has been recognized externally in several ESG indices. In 2020, we received an MSCI ESG Rating of A on a scale of AAA-CCC. To address the challenges of climate change, we have committed to set science-based targets through the Science Based Targets initiative.
