Quadpack announces its corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, as it approaches its 15th anniversary.
Since its foundation in 2003, it has seen a steady year-on-year growth, transforming into a thriving, global organisation. Now, with over 250 employees on four continents and an annual turnover approaching €100 million, it seeks to formally outline its commitment to responsible governance through a far-reaching CSR programme.
Led by CSR Director Alex San Miguel from the company’s Barcelona headquarters, the strategy ensures that Quadpack’s activities leave a positive impact in three key areas: society, the environment and long-term financial performance.
“In other words, ‘people, planet, profit’,” explains San Miguel. “The bigger the business, the bigger the impact and the bigger the responsibility. As we grow our business, we want make sure we do it responsibly. We have a long-term plan with short-term action points that will ensure our sustainability now and in the future.”
The CSR strategy touches all areas of Quadpack’s business, with particular importance placed on responsible manufacture. It covers a host of areas including health and safety, recycling schemes, energy use, risk management, ethical supply chains and the ongoing development of eco-friendly packaging concepts.
Beyond financial and environmental sustainability, the company aims to contribute to its social environment. Co-founder and CEO Tim Eaves says: “I have always been grateful to each city that has given Quadpack a home and we want to give something back to the communities wherever we are present.”
A big part of this is Quadpack Foundation, the company’s charitable arm founded in March 2016. Quadpack Foundation supports social and environmental projects, with an emphasis on helping disadvantaged children get a good start in life.
