COROPLAST GROUP SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE Our sustainability management

The Coroplast Group's sustainability strategy is constantly being developed. It is a key task for us and therefore an integral part of our corporate strategy. The following instruments and measures of our sustainability management ensure that we can implement the goals we have set in practice.

Materiality analysis and current priorities

To ensure that we are working on the right issues, we conducted a materiality analysis in 2021, which shows us the need for action in the most important areas. The assessment takes into account both our internal view and external stakeholder perspectives. The following four topics have been identified as priorities for us:

  • Climate strategy,
  • Product Development,
  • Energy & Resource Efficiency, and
  • Reporting & Rating.

Our sustainability strategy assigns short, medium and long-term targets to these topics. In preparation for the reporting obligation under the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), we will adapt this analysis to the requirements of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) and repeat it accordingly.

Structure of the organization

The "Occupational Safety and Environmental Protection" and "Corporate Office" departments, also known as the Coroplast Group Sustainability Initiative (CSI) team, are responsible for the strategic and operational management of group-wide sustainability management. The "CSI team" at the headquarters in Wuppertal develops content, submits it to the decision-making bodies for approval and implements it with internal partners.

Involvement of the committees

  • The Management Board decides on the group-wide sustainability strategy, sets targets and makes relevant decisions on the implementation of group-wide sustainability management.

  • The general managers support the coordination of sustainability issues at the locations, provide the necessary resources, participate in investment as well as cost planning and decide on the implementation of operational measures. In addition, all sites have a responsible person for ESG topics who serve as direct contact for the CSI team.

  • All topics and projects are coordinated by the CSI Board, which is made up of employees from all divisions and departments. The board regularly exchanges information, jointly decides on directive measures and submits them to the management for a decision.

  • The external advisory board for digital transformation and sustainability supports sustainability management with input from business and science.
