Solutions that create value for our customers

With interest in responsible products and the drive to reduce plastics increasing among consumers and businesses, sustainable packaging – and plastics in particular – has become a hot topic for stakeholders. We see this as an opportunity to grow our business by engaging partners across the value chain to unlock new innovations in plastic and paperbased products that support the transition to a circular economy.
