Johannesburg, 8 August 2017. Today Mpact, one of the leading paper and plastics packaging businesses in southern Africa, reported unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2017.
Sustainable development is inherent to Mpact and a key tenet of our vision to be a leading packaging business with the highest ethical standards, delivering exceptional value for customers, employees, communities, and shareholders.
We adhere to the highest industry health and safety standards and have a zero tolerance policy on safety incidents. We are committed to responsible sourcing of raw materials, conserving the natural resources we depend on, and ensuring efficient supply chains. To this end, we engage with our various stakeholders on critical sustainability issues such as workplace safety, future resource constraints, employment practices, transformation, diversity, regulatory environment and broader social issues affecting the country.
The Group’s sustainability activities, which are aligned to Mpact’s three strategic pillars - leading market position, a customer-focused operating structure and focus on performance - reflect this engagement, the integration of our business model, and consider highly the impact of these activities on the environment, our people, our investors, and the communities in which we operate.
