SIG is a world-leading systems and solutions provider for aseptic packaging, working in partnership with our customers to bring food and beverage products to consumers around the world in a safe, sustainable and affordable way. Our unique technology and outstanding innovation capability enable us to provide fully customized solutions for differentiated products and smarter factories.
At the heart of all we do is our commitment to go Way Beyond Good – to contribute more to society and the environment than we take out across our value chain. To achieve this, we have set bold ambitions on being a responsible company, making responsible products and sourcing responsibly.
SIG has pioneered the use of third-party verified certifications within the industry to enhance traceability in the supply chain and demonstrate that key materials such as liquid packaging board and plant-based polymers are responsibly sourced. Most of our carton packs also include an ultra-thin barrier layer of aluminium foil and the ASI certification provides a robust way for us to audit aluminium suppliers against strict ethical, environmental and social standards.
We support the ASI’s commitment to promote the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium by encouraging our suppliers to obtain certification to the ASI standards and supporting efforts to enhance transparency and promote responsible practices throughout the supply chain.
SIG’s commitment to responsible sourcing is central to our ambition to go Way Beyond Good by putting more into society and the environment than we take out. Sourcing materials from suppliers that have been certified to strict ethical, environmental and social standards is one of the best ways we can demonstrate that commitment. By joining the ASI, we have the opportunity to enhance the environmental credentials of our cartons through the new ASI certification on the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. This builds on our pioneering efforts within the industry to source raw materials, such as liquid packaging board and plant-based polymers, from certified sources.
