UN Global Compact and the UN SDGs

Paptic is a participant of the United Nations Global Compact and is committed to its Ten Principles related to human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. Paptic respects and recognizes the UN Agenda 2030, and contributes to various Sustainable Development Goals.

Paptic is a participant of the UN Global Compact which is a voluntary initiative based on CEO level commitment to implement common sustainability principles established in 2000. The initiative calls on companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. At Paptic, sustainability and its key principles are the base for the company’s operations and aims – we are “Obliged by Awareness” – Conscientia Tenetur – and we work for replacing the use of fossil plastics in packaging. Our philosophy is to do good and do well.

Through our own actions and solutions, we work to support and contribute to achieving the SDGs. We approach the agenda 2030 through the value chain, starting from sustainable and renewable raw materials through modern and efficient production to materials that correspond to the increasing demand for sustainable solutions that fit the circular economy.
