Chesapeake targets further green improvements in 2013

Carton specialist Chesapeake is set to press ahead with its environmental initiatives for 2013 after claiming success on its aims last year.

The company’s ‘Chesapeake 100’ was launched in 2011 and is designed to reduce the group’s environmental impact while “demonstrating its ongoing commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)”. This year, the business has committed to in-excess of 130 environmental related improvement projects across its global operations.

In 2012, 119 new targets were set. Of these, 104 targets were achieved or exceeded, some being extended into 2013 and many continuing to deliver measureable results.

Phillip Adams CSR director said: “In 2013, we’d like to see a greater increase in social responsibility initiatives to further strengthen our links with local communities as well as consolidating our impressive health and safety protocols. The ownership of these projects remains at site level although the outcomes are being shared globally to ensure that best practices are adopted across the business. The projects demonstrate that, due to Chesapeake’s scale, making even the smallest changes can deliver impressive results.”
