Corporate responsibility program
Our corporate responsibility program, Packaging for Good, focuses on four themes; People, Packaging, Supply chain and Operations. These are the most material corporate responsibility-related aspects for our business. We have a stated ambition for each theme and measure our performance against related key performance indicators.
