’Returnable Transport Packaging has a key role in the transition to a circular and low-carbon economy.’
Schoeller Allibert’s sustainability strategy has three main pillars. These three pillars are based on a thorough assessment of our material sustainability topics and describe the main areas where we assess our contribution to positive change.
We design and innovate returnable packaging to meet the world’s need for sustainable and circular solutions.
We enable the transition to a low-carbon economy in packaging and help shape a greener future.
We respect and value our employees and all our stakeholders and live up to the highest standards of ethics and governance.
Schoeller Allibert has a long-standing history of driving innovation and creating efficient solutions for our customers. But our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop there. It is our ambition to make packaging waste-free, climate-responsible, and fully circular. We help the world to move away from single-use solutions.
Ludo S. C. Gielen - CEO Schoeller Allibert
In our fast-moving world, packaging plays a supporting, yet crucial role across all supply chains and industries. To make packaging truly sustainable we need to both innovate our offerings and co-create supply chain solutions together with our customers.
