Elopak works continuously and tirelessly to improve its corporate governance framework, aiming to maintain a strong company culture and encourage healthy and proper business management, safeguarding long-term success while remaining truthful to its principles. Elopak’s governance framework, which includes our Code of Conduct, serves as a guide to upholding the integrity and ethical foundation of Elopak.


Sustainability governance approach

Accountability for sustainability in Elopak lies with the Board of Directors. The Board has appointed the Board Audit and Sustainability Committee (BASC) to assume its oversight responsibilities. This includes overseeing the reporting process and ensuring balance, transparency, and integrity of external financial and sustainability reporting.

Strategy and its implementation is owned by the Global Leadership Team (GLT). A cross-functional sustainability network has been established to manage and implement relevant sustainability topics in Elopak. Led by the sustainability director, responsibilities are naturally placed under the relevant business units.

Delegated by the GLT, compliance of the different areas under ESG (environmental, social, and governance issues) is governed by a sustainability Council. Chaired by the Sustainability Director, the sustainability council includes the CMO, CFO, CHRO, CPO, and EVP Packaging and Closures.


Governing documents and standards

We have multiple governing documents to support our sustainability approach. In addition, we use measures such as certifications and third-party audits. We believe certifications are an important step towards transparency. Read more here.
