Sustainable food packaging solutions

Our ambition is to be the first choice in sustainable packaging solutions. Sustainability lies at the center of the Huhtamaki strategy.

We embed sustainability in everything we do. For us, sustainability means considering the impact we have – both positive and negative – throughout the value chain, in terms of the environment, social responsibility and governance.

We believe that the value of packaging is more than its impact on the planet and that we can make a difference in the food system value chain in several ways. We aim to minimize the negative impacts of our operations and products on the environment while maximizing the positive impacts on our stakeholders, consumers and society.

In 2020, we launched our 2030 sustainability ambition and the related goals

We support the UN Global Compact and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our sustainability work is in line with the ten principles of the Global Compact, which cover the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
