At DS Smith we are building a better business, focused on delivering sustainable value to all of our stakeholders. To us, truly sustainable value is found when balancing the needs of Our Business, Our Environment and Our People.
Our core business is the design and manufacture of recycled packaging for consumer goods. We recognise that our operations have both direct and indirect impacts. Those are upstream through our sourcing activities and downstream through the ways our customers use and dispose of our products.
Demonstrating our commitment to operating ever more responsibly and delighting our customers, we make annual submissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), EcoVadis and are SEDEX AB members.
DS Smith is currently focusing on three core sustainability targets;
- To reduce CO2e emissions per tonne of production by 30% by 2030
- To achieve 100% FSC certification for in-scope sites in 2018
- For 100% of in-scope sites to be have completed the SEDEX self-assessment questionnaire
