At Smurfit Kappa Colombia we are leaders in the supply of paper-based packaging and products, as well as being the largest cardboard and paper recyclers in the country and the largest private reforesters. We are also the only producers of corrugated packaging, paperboard, and printing and writing papers, with Sello Ambiental Colombiano (Colombian Environment Seal) and FSC® in Chain of Custody certificates, for the traceability of the fibres in the production process.

We generate around 5,518 jobs in Colombia and we have operations in Cali, Bogotá, Medellín and Barranquilla. Since 1969, we have managed forestry plantations in six counties of the country’s Andean region, with FSC® certification for responsible forest management since 2003.

Through the Smurfit Kappa Colombia Foundation, we contribute to the sustainable development of Colombia, thanks to the environmental, social and economic management, and to the relationship with our stakeholders.

Dear Friends:

At the Smurfit Kappa Colombia Foundation, we contribute to the construction of a fair society, with equal opportunities and freedoms. In our last strategic plan, we articulated our programs to six Sustainable Development Goals and we work for the continuous improvement of communities strengthening human, social, cultural, economic and community capital.

2020 was a year of challenges and opportunities, in which COVID-19 claimed a significant number of lives and disrupted the social and economic balance at world scale; meanwhile, we have adapted our actions to continue benefiting 8,520 people (49% are women) from 43 municipalities and 14 departments from Colombia.

Thanks go out all of the people who accompany our work with enthusiasm, commitment, leadership and a genuine interest in contributing to the equitable progress of society.
