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.
Our Sustainability Strategy
Innovation for a circular economy
We design and innovate returnable packaging to meet the world’s need for sustainable and circular solutions.
Future proof planet
We enable the transition to a low-carbon economy in packaging and help shape a greener future.
Integrity at heart
We respect and value our employees and all our stakeholders and live up to the highest standards of ethics and governance.
Returnable Transport Packaging has a key role in the transition to a circular and low-carbon economy.
Innovation and the Circular Economy are inseparable concepts on our sustainability journey.

Schoeller Allibert is an active member of the Stiftung Initiative Mehrweg which aims to provide support for the conservation of natural resources and the protection of the environment by increasing the amount of reusable packaging in all sectors.
Waste Free Oceans (WFO)
Schoeller Allibert is a proud member of Waste Free Oceans (WFO) and is actively supporting the organization’s mission to reduce, reuse and recycle marine litter, mitigating the impact on both the environment and natural resources.
South Pole Group
Schoeller Allibert has been working with the South Pole Group to assess our 2020 corporate carbon footprint and to develop our emission reduction strategy and targets.
Together with the agency Climate Partner we have established the product carbon footprint of several of our products.
Tree-Nation is a platform, which was created to reforest the world and fight climate change. The mission of Tree-Nation states that it wants to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050. Planting trees has been proven to be one of the most efficient solutions to fight Climate Change. Schoeller Allibert will support this project and will plant Schoeller Allibert Forest worldwide. In 2022 we will plant more than 5000 trees in different projects across the world.
