Sustainability report 2023

Chain collaboration as the key to sustainability

Paardekooper has been providing packaging solutions for 105 years. What started as a shop selling paper goods has now become a global player in packaging. Paardekooper produces, sells and distributes packaging and decoration materials in its own shops, online, through partners, and our organization. With over 21 shops, 10 offices in 7 countries and several online stores, we serve 600,00 customers a year worldwide.

Every day, around 800 employees working in our shops, logistics centres and offices are dedicated to providing this service.

Consumers, governments and the retail- and floriculture chain impose increasingly high demands on the use of packaging. We see collaborations within the chain as the key to meeting these demands. Without collaboration, we cannot close the material chain.

The themes were determined together with our stakeholders.
Desk research was conducted on trends, developments and challenges facing customers and similar businesses.
