eCommerce demand

What’s the opportunity?

The long-term digitalisation of our world has driven more and more shoppers online in recent years.

This transition has been quickened by the pandemic, with consumers becoming increasingly informed and savvy in their online purchases.

As shopping moves online, retailers are looking for new ways to deliver their brand experience, increase efficiency and manage their environmental footprint. Packaging is a crucial part of this.

How are we responding?

Our cross-value chain expertise and broad portfolio mean we can provide tailored eCommerce solutions that are economic, efficient and easy to use for our customers.

Sustainable packaging demand

What’s the opportunity?

Increasing consumer awareness of the impact of the products and services they consume is driving demand for more sustainable packaging, creating a platform for innovation and new business opportunities, while challenging major FMCGs, retailers and packaging players to actively drive positive change.

How are we responding?

We’re working with our customers to help them achieve their sustainability goals, leveraging our unique platform of paper where possible, plastic when useful, to achieve our commitment of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging and paper solutions by 2025.
