Our goal is to financially support sustainable projects that positively impact the lives of underprivileged people in the communities where Smurfit Kappa Group operates

The Smurfit Kappa Foundation was formed in 2011 when the Board of Smurfit Kappa Group decided to donate funds to the Foundation each year.

Our vision for the Smurfit Kappa Foundation is to positively impact the lives of underprivileged people in the communities where Smurfit Kappa Group operates. We hope to achieve this vision by financially supporting sustainable projects that positively impact the lives of underprivileged people through health and nutrition, education, basic care and by reducing inequalities that exist. We will engage our local plants in all projects. Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal’s as a guide, we will begin by focusing on six SDG’s; No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Wellbeing, Quality Education, Gender Equality and Reduced Inequalities.
