Introduction to our CR reporting

We’re on a journey to create the perfect pack – a pack that gives more to people and planet than it takes out.

Getting there will stretch us further than we have ever gone. But we have already started that journey. We call it The Way Beyond Good.

The Way Beyond Good sets out industry-leading goals in four interconnected action areas – Climate+, Forest+, Resource+ and Food+ – all underpinned by our commitment to sustainable innovation and our responsible culture. These priorities are informed by an assessment of our most material environmental and social topics (see pages 390–391 in the Annual Report PDF).

Together, our actions in each of these areas will produce lasting change and a net positive impact on people and the planet as we strive to give back more than we take.

About our CR reporting

Our corporate responsibility (CR) reporting on environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics is included within SIG’s Annual Report.

This Way Beyond Good chapter provides an overview of CR governance, progress towards our Way Beyond Good ambitions, and performance on our most material environmental and social topics. Further ESG disclosures can be found in the appendix (see Annual Report PDF pages 371-372).

Reporting standards

We report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and a GRI content index is included in the appendix (see pages 387–410 in the Annual Report PDF). We also align our CR reporting and ESG disclosures with various other recognised external frameworks (see pages 371–372 in the Annual Report PDF), including the United Nations Global Compact, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework and the EU Taxonomy.


Key performance indicators (summarised in Key performance indicators) have been externally assured with limited assurance by PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft. See assurance statement on pages 411–413 in the Annual Report PDF.

Scope of our CR reporting

Our CR reporting covers the 2022 calendar year. Unless otherwise stated, CR data in this report: covers all operations globally that were fully owned by SIG at the start of 2022, which includes all operations related to our aseptic carton business (including research and development, sleeve and spout production, filling machine assembly, technical service and offices); and excludes our new bag-in-box and spouted pouch business (formerly Scholle IPN) and our new chilled carton business (acquired from Evergreen Asia) – both acquired mid-way through 2022 – as well as our joint venture in Japan.

Find out more about our approach to ESG topics

We publish detailed policies, including public commitments, on ESG topics on our website. For each topic, we explain why it is material for SIG, state what our commitment is, and set out our policy and approach. This publicly available summary is supported by an in-depth internal ESG Policy Manual to guide our approach across the business.
