Compromiso de Sostenibilidad
Guided by our Vision “Growing Sustainably, Competing with the Best” we strive daily to improve our performance by optimizing environmental and social impacts, both in our products and processes, in constant dialogue with our stakeholders to understand the changing environment.
The president’s vision
“We are well aware the road to a sustainable future is paved with daily challenges and requires openness to new business models, starting from our products and finally encompassing all of our behaviours.
At Gualapack we take on these challenges with enthusiasm, convinced there are always opportunities to seize within great changes and confident that, with our clients and suppliers, we will be able to create a world where packaging will have a lower impact and yet maintain all the functional qualities that allow us, today, to preserve and use many of the products that are part of our everyday life.”
President and CEO
