Being active around the globe, we are aware of our impact on the environment and society and commit to produce high quality products, while recognizing the importance of working in a safe, ethical and sustainable manner.
As a company in the flexible packaging industry with production plants around the world, Constantia Flexibles is committed to prevent potential and minimize existing negative impacts on the environment.
The global increase of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from human activities is a significant driver of global warming, having very severe consequences for ecosystems and communities. Constantia Flexibles has therefore set an absolute GHG-emissions reduction target in line with climate science, showing our dedication to play our part in international efforts to limit global temperature rise. Furthermore, it is fundamental to ensure that packaging waste is being collected and recycled and does not end up in landfills or the environment. That is why Constantia Flexibles continuously works on the recyclability of its flexible packaging solutions. Bearing in mind that global challenges can only be met in a common effort, we foster social and environmental responsibility, as well as fair and ethical business principles throughout the supply chain – also in close contact with our suppliers.
