Our sustainability journey

CurTec supplies packaging to demanding markets and has therefore always strived for the highest standards with regard to operational management and quality. In the past 20 years, we have succeeded in obtaining important certifications, including in the fields of the environment, energy and ethical business practices.

However, social responsibility extends beyond standards and certificates, which is why we started working on sustainability and the related themes. Through internal workshops, we have determined what we mean by sustainability and how we want to build a sustainable future, resulting in a new mission and vision.

Sustainability vision

Contrary to our mission, our vision has clearly changed with an emphasis on sustainable development:

  • We know that circularity is becoming increasingly important in the packaging industry and we want to anticipate this
  • We advocate sharing knowledge, inspiring others and being inspired
  • We strive for a net zero value chain where we don't stop at our gate
  • We want to realize our sustainability ambitions together with our partners

Our intentions and goals are laid down in a strategic roadmap and are based on three pillars:


& wellbeing

& partnerships

The first pillar represents the ambition to bring emissions to net zero across our entire value chain. The second pillar includes the ambition to have a positive impact on the health, safety and well-being of our people. The third pillar represents the ambition to work with partners on the transition to a circular packaging industry.


CurTec has anchored sustainability on a strategic and organizational level. One of our long-term goals is to become a leader in sustainability by 2027. Each department is therefore held responsible for achieving this objective.

At the organizational level, we have appointed a sustainability officer who works full-time to manage the mission and collaborates with all departments to realize the ambitions. This role falls under the QESH department and is supported by a group of green-thinking colleagues: the CurTec Green Team.
