Being a sustainable company means taking good care of people, both in our company, and outside. This is a natural part of our sustainability focus and is increasingly important in Elopak.
Elopak aims to contribute to increased knowledge, understanding and interest for science and technology among children. We have activities in several countries, and we aim to expand this to more countries, as we find it important to educate children in terms of sustainability in order to help them make sound decisions in the future.
Elopak’s response to and handling of the Covid-19 pandemic was swift and effective. In February 2020, a Corporate Response Team under the lead of CHRO was established. Its role was to align and establish local processes to avoid spreading of the virus and infection of our employees.Read more
Spain was one of the worst hit countries during the COVID-19 crisis, with Madrid reporting the highest number of cases. To help overwhelmed hospitals Elopak Spain teamed up with its water customer FONTSORIA.
Elopak Spain donated around 60 thousand cartons for FONTSORIA’s Agua enCaja Mejor brand. The ‘Water in a Box is Better’ product is well-known as a more environmental water package.
The cartons were distributed to IFEMA, the congress orgnaization in Madrid which converted its venues into temporary hospitals. The water was also delivered to other hospitals to help medical staff and patients.
During the crisis, FONTSORIA changed its strapline to ‘Boxed water at Home is Better’ to help promote the important message to stay at home and stay safe.
The message was promoted on social media https://www.facebook.com/aguaencajamejor/ and new campaign and video [link]
The Covid pandemic made life challenging for many, with food banks becoming essential to help people struggling to afford the basics.
Food Banks very often lack enough milk, with the pandemic causing severe shortages. Elopak’s customer LSCH set up the project called LAIT DU CŒUR (milk from the heart) with other milk producers, packaging suppliers, and distributors. In 2020, Elopak France partnered with LSDH and contributed by providing free Roll Fed packaging material.
Together, the initiative donated 1 million liters of milk to food banks across seven regions in France. LSDH and its partners ensured that the collection and packaging of the products and the finished products were sent directly to Food Banks collection points. Distributed since the beginning of January 2021, the project helped the food banks benefit over two million people.
In October 2020, the Norwegian state TV hosted its annual fundraising event in Norway. This year the campaign was to raise funds to support the World Wide Fund for Nature’s fight against plastic waste in the oceans. In one of the world’s biggest charity events Elopak employees signed up and together raised more than NOK 37.500,- (EUR 3.750,-).
To support all employee’s fundraising efforts, Elopak added a donation of NOK 100.000,- (EUR 10.000,-). This created a grand total donation of NOK 137,00, (EUR 13,750). But our contribution did not end there, with many more of us joining the campaign to clean the oceans.
To make a clear statement against plastic pollution, several colleagues in Norway, including the CEO and the CFO, joined the national beach-cleaning campaign in spring 2020.
Health and Safety
Elopak’s continued drive to improve safety in operational areas has resulted in a significant reduction in recordable injuries in comparison to 2019. Elopak has historically used the LTI rate as the high-level safety KPI, as is the norm in the industry. To bring more attention to all safety incidents, the focussed high-level KPI will be changed to Total Recordable Injury rate, TRI.Read more
