Delivering Now & Leading Next

We are taking action today to lead the transition to a low carbon, circular economy.

At DS Smith, sustainability is integral to our circular business model and we can have the greatest positive impact by helping to create a low carbon, circular economy. It’s a journey we have been on with customers and colleagues for more than a decade. 

When we launched our Now & Next Sustainability Strategy in 2020 we set ambitious near and long-term targets that confirmed our commitment to the Circular Economy and our Purpose of Redefining Packaging for a Changing World.  

Our Now & Next Sustainability Strategy includes aspirations for ‘Now’ and for ‘Next, focusing on the sustainability challenges we are facing today, as well as those that will impact on future generations. This allow us to lead the transition to a low carbon, circular economy. 

We are proud of the progress we’ve made to date in partnership with our customers, suppliers and communities. We are well on track to meet our ambitious targets and, in some cases, ahead of schedule. 

The world, and what it takes to lead, are constantly changing and our strategy continues to evolve. 

We see a huge opportunity to put new ways of thinking into action across our focus areas: Circularity, Carbon, People & Communities, and Nature.
