Smurfit Kappa has been named among the most important companies in Colombia for its contribution to society and development of the country.

The recognition was given following an analysis was carried out by a panel of experts put together by Semana, a leading current affairs magazine in the country.

The panel examined how a wide range of companies manage their environmental and community relationships, the level of innovation in their processes, their talent, and their relationships with the public sector in terms of ethics and transparency.

This resulted in Smurfit Kappa, and 24 other private sector companies, being named as the key players in the development of the country.

The group also includes companies from sectors including construction, commerce, agriculture, services, industry and food with nine Smurfit Kappa customers among them.

“We believe that this recognition is an excellent opportunity to show the good practices and the commitment to sustainability that many companies in Colombia have,” Alvaro Henao, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Colombia, said.

“At Smurfit Kappa, we strive to play an active part in the development of the communities where we operate and in our 74 years here, it has always been one of the pillars of our corporate culture.”
