April 16, 2019
SIG’s Corporate Responsibility Report for 2018 highlights the progress the company has made towards its bold ambition to go Way Beyond Good – and explores what this means for the environment, society, and SIG.
Milestones on the journey
SIG set out to become a net positive company three years ago. Since then, the company has achieved a host of industry firsts:
In addition, SIG recently celebrated the launch of its Cartons for Good flagship project in Bangladesh, where its unique mobile filling machine is helping farmers preserve surplus food and providing children with school meals.
Rolf Stangl, SIG CEO said: “I am very proud of the progress we have made since we embarked on our responsibility roadmap in 2016. We are leading the industry by pioneering sustainable innovations that will help to deliver scalable, systemic net positive impacts – for society, the environment, and our business.”
SIG’s latest Corporate Responsibility Report combines narrative on the company’s progress with detailed reporting on the management of its most material environmental and social issues. It was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core option. GRI requirements are clearly signposted throughout the document, together with relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Visual cues throughout the document highlight areas where SIG is leading the industry, as well as tracking progress towards its goals and acknowledging key challenges as part of the company’s commitment to transparency.
SIG’s external Responsibility Advisory Group (RAG) met for the first time in 2018 and direct feedback from members of the RAG is published in the report, together with the company’s response. Quotes from other stakeholders add further credibility and selected data points have been externally assured.
The report shows how corporate responsibility is built into the company strategy and every aspect of the business as SIG strives to go Way Beyond Good.
