Sustainability lies at the core of Horizon’s corporate strategy and purpose.

Products designed for a sustainable packaging value chain​

Horizon has been an early pioneer in implementing sustainability initiatives in the sack kraft paper industry. We foresaw early on climate change trends, the need for sustainable packaging before the related 2015 EU directive and an opportunity to create value for our customers and other stakeholders.

We practice sustainability in our entire value chain from sourcing of raw materials to manufacturing paper products. As a leading European manufacturer exporting to over 70 countries, Horizon transfers the recyclable, reusable and biodegradable qualities of its FSC® certified paper products to the global packaging value chain – fostering circular economy in the global packaging value chain. 

Our initiatives are not limited to our products however. They extend to improving the Environment and well-being of our community at large.
