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 sustainable 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.
Our approach covers:
- Our Business: Creating shared value through responsible recycling, paper and packaging solutions
- Our Environment: Minimising our impact from design to production, supply to recycling
- Our People: Ensuring the safety, wellbeing and development of colleagues and contributing to our communities.
Our business model is built on sustainability – by providing state of the art, customer-specific packaging that is fully recyclable. For instance, our plastics products, such as bag-in-box, also offer significant environmental benefits over alternative materials.
