Our management model and governance bodies oversee compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, proper economic development and manage policies and practices at every place we operate. Evertis combines economic perspective with an obligation to foster sustainability practices that protect our environment, add value to our products and protect every community we touch.
We strive to meet expectations of today’s socially and environmentally conscious consumers while taking into consideration the needs of the most vulnerable communities. Evertis aims to foster governance from our core to locations where we operate, preserving the highest standards of business conduct and corporate governance practices.
We express our values under our Code of Business Ethics, where we define a strong ethical culture that leads us to perform and serve as our basis to what is economically, environmentally, and socially right.
The code of ethics entails an internal regulation of obligatory compliance. The standards of Business Conduct and Ethics apply to all directors, senior collaborators and permanent employees of companies of the Group, as well as to non-permanent employees, interns, experimental workers, in addition to any other temporary staff. These standards are established using clear guidelines that regulate our behavior and guide us on the moral thing to do.
Evertis’ code is not based only on a set of norms, but also on a reflection of our unwritten corporate culture that gives meaning to the values and principles that lead us on our decision-making process throughout the years.
At Evertis we further enhanced our commitment to respect people and human rights, our environment, and operate with integrity. We promote the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the ILO Core Conventions on Labour Standards. Our commitment is reported in our Code of Business Ethics.
At Evertis, our executive management team is continuously evaluating group performance, in the economic, environmental and social aspects, with a critical eye. Our goal is to continuously enhance our actions.
Our future outlook focuses on achievement of a true circular economy. This is attainable through the innovative solutions we offer our customers so that together we can meet the global pledge to close the loop.
Not only does Evertis’ core business emphasizes sustainability, but we also make it our mission to extend our sustainable approach to the whole PET value chain.
Evertis believes that turning sustainability targets into realities is only achievable if sustainability is fully integrated across our organization and built into our business strategy. Cross-functional teams are set up to work on new opportunities and minimize emerging threats.
As of 2019 we have collaborated to provide transparency and visibility on our performance in the PET tray value chain in terms of circular economy and Evertis’ incorporation of post-industrial and post-consumer recycled content from a delamination process of multilayer waste.
