Advisory Council on Digital Transformation and Sustainability Valuable know-how for successful transformation processes

Initiate, question, support: Our committee of thought leaders from various industries and academic disciplines – as well as internal experts – accompanies us in the realization of our digitization and sustainability strategy.

Impulses and advice

How can we act more digitally and sustainably among ourselves and with our business partners? How can new technologies, business models or cooperations contribute to this – for the benefit of customers, employees, to tackle climate change and to conserve natural resources? Our top-class advisory board meets regularly and advises the management of the Coroplast Group with its extensive expertise and critical view on all questions of digitalization, automation, climate and environmental protection, and sustainable business.

Implementing digital and sustainable transformation as quickly as effectively is critical to our future success.
