Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

About ESG

As a market leading multinational company, environmental protection and sustainability is at the heart of our innovation journey. Every step that we take is carefully planned and responsibly executed.

 

At Filtrona, our customers are our long term partners as we support and grow with them to meet ambitious Environmental, Social and Governance targets. We journey together to drive sustainable transformations internally and externally as we create impactful positive changes on our planet.

Environmental Commitment

We use environmentally safe and sustainable resources. Wastage is greatly reduced as we source responsibly from recyclable materials. Taking our green step further, we are ISO 14001 accredited in environmental management system. All our stakeholders (employees, suppliers and partners) are informed of our environmental policy as we continue to build a sustainable path forward.

Filtrona is committed to continue its innovative development of more renewable, degradable and environmentally sustainable products. The plastic-free and degradable options available in our ECO range of products is evidence of our commitment to build a greener world. 

Environmental, Social & Governance

In 2021 we established an ESG Committee to be the operational focal point for ESG activities and engage our business divisions as well as Board and management committees to ensure a consistent and integrated approach to the management of ESG risks and opportunities.
This group has led the development of an ESG strategy, continued to communicate our objectives and targets internally and externally published our first ESG review. These foundations are even more important as we look towards the fruition of the strategic reviews of the Filters and Packaging divisions and the realisation of a pure play Components business over time.

Environment

Sustainability

In 2020 we set ourselves the goal of “class-leading sustainability”, building on the four pillars of our sustainability strategy, which has been mapped to the relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
