Faerch Plast, one of Europe’s leading producers of plastic containers for the food industry, has published its first annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, available online at www.faerchplast.com downloads.

The report provides an annual review of the Group’s responsible business performance during 2013. It shows how the company is adapting its business model and pursuing a strategy that delivers sustainable performance.

Last year, Faerch Plast defined five focus areas of social responsibility as being particularly relevant: use of recycled plastics; climate; food safety; ethics and integrity and employees.

“When we think about the intent of our CSR initiatives, we are mindful of our stakeholders: customers, employees, local communities, regulators and stockholders,” says Lars Gade Hansen, Faerch Plast’s CEO. “Faerch Plast is a responsible company that wants to communicate about its CSR activities. As a result, the annual CSR reports will be the main vehicle we have for sharing details on these initiatives so everyone can have a stronger sense of who we are as a company.”

The 2013 report primarily focuses on objectives for the Danish plant but also sets out new five-year CSR targets for the entire Group including the UK and Czech Republic facilities, all of which are expected to be fulfilled by 2018.
