TIME’s “World’s Best Companies”

Smurfit Kappa has earned a coveted spot in TIME and market research company Statista’s “World’s Best Companies” list, an independent acknowledgment of significant achievements in employee satisfaction, revenue growth, and sustainability. Smurfit Kappa’s inclusion is based on strong scores across extensive employee survey results, revenue growth, and data points related to all three dimensions of ESG.

The Top 100 Sustainable Companies list, compiled annually by Sustainability Magazine, recognises companies that have shown exemplary dedication to sustainable business practices, environmental conservation, and social responsibility. As the only corrugated packaging firm to be listed, this achievement demonstrates how Smurfit Kappa is driving change across the packaging sector and solidifies its reputation as a leader in sustainable business.

Smurfit Kappa’s selection for both lists is a testament to its commitment to sustainability and demonstrates how businesses can achieve growth while continuing to drive meaningful change.
