Through reporting, we gather relevant feedback, helping us improve our sustainability approach. Elopak reports in accordance with the GRI framework. We also report to CDP, the UN Global Compact, in the EcoVadis and Sedex platforms, and to the Ethical Trade Norway organization.

On December 14, 2022, the EU published an updated directive on Corporate Sustainability Reporting (CSRD). Elopak plans to do a gap analysis on our current reporting in comparison with the new directive during 2023 to ensure compliance. We will also evaluate external verification of the entire report (parts of the data in this report is third party verified).
