DS Smith hits 3 key sustainability targets

DS Smith has announced that it has achieved three of its sustainability milestones for 2019/20.

Initially set in 2018, the goals focused on engaging with local communities, reducing energy use and ensuring sustainably sourced paper and fibre across DS Smith’s packaging operation.

 Group Chief Executive, Miles Roberts said: “These targets embed sustainability across our entire organisation and are focused on the areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact; using innovative packaging to make supply chains more efficient, reducing our environmental impact and being responsible for our people and the communities in which we operate. It is by delivering against these, and the ongoing review of our priorities and objectives, that we look to achieve our strategic goal to lead the way in sustainability.”

As a leading supplier of sustainable packaging solutions, DS Smith is committed to tackling some of the great challenges our communities and environment are facing. That’s why sustainability is at the heart of our business as we work to redefine packaging for a changing world.

The hard work and dedication of countless teams and individuals across DS Smith means that we have been able to hit these targets, reaffirming our commitment to sustainability right across the business.
