Smurfit Kappa named a sustainability top performer

Smurfit Kappa has been recognised as a top ESG performer by leading research and analytics company, Morningstar Sustainalytics.

Following a thorough analysis of global companies, Smurfit Kappa’s 2022 ESG Risk Rating improved, seeing the company positioned in Sustainalytics’ list of Top Rated companies both for the industry and regional categories.

Garrett Quinn, Chief Sustainability Officer, Smurfit Kappa, said, “It’s an honour to receive recognition from Sustainalytics for a second year which includes improved rankings and recognises our work in the field of sustainability by awarding us top rated both in the geographies and industry we operate in. At a time when corporate sustainability strategies across the globe are under the spotlight for credibility, this is further strong validation of our well-established sustainability reporting and delivery and is another extremely positive development for Smurfit Kappa, our investors and all of our stakeholders. It’s a testament to everyone involved that these actions have been recognised again by such a reputable third party.”

The rating from Sustainalytics is one of the latest third-party validations of Smurfit Kappa’s leadership in sustainability. The recognition builds on Smurfit Kappa’s recent CDP upgrade to ‘A-’ in climate and its ‘AA’ rating with MSCI.
