With more than 20 projects in nine countries, the non-profit organisation has grown its reach and governance

Quadpack Foundation has had much to celebrate in 2021. After appointing a dedicated manager, Marta Gil, in January, the organisation has grown in reach, governance, engagement and professionalisation.

Besides the continuous support given to organisations such as Fundació Impulsa, in Spain, and Change Young Lives Foundation, in Hong Kong and mainland China, the foundation started to collaborate with new projects in the UK, France, Germany, Japan, the United States and Australia. In total, 24 projects received support in nine countries, plus a number of actions with global reach. What’s more, a record number of 96 Quadpackers engaged in volunteering activities throughout the world. It amounted to a world tour to make a positive impact. Here is what some of the stakeholders had to say:

“We work with more than 30,000 people in Australia, mostly children and young people subjected to violence. Quadpack reached out to us a couple of months ago wanting to help, and we came up with the kilometres challenge, a fun and engaging fundraising activity. The funds raised will be applied into a Teaching Family Model programme, where young people who have suffered trauma learn to live in a family again” – Torren Woolley, Corporate and Community Relations Manager of Berry Street – Australia.

Around 50 Quadpackers engaged in the challenge and raised more than €10,000 for the Teaching Family Model Programme.

“I did my internship as a receptionist and office assistant at Quadpack’s headquarters, thanks to a collaboration with the Red Cross in Catalonia, where I received my training. Although I have lived in Spain for four years, I’ve never had the chance to work in the country, and this experience boosted my motivation and self-confidence” – Angela Villanueva, Office Assistant – Spain

Part of the same Red Cross project in Catalonia, seven Quadpackers engaged in a mentoring programme focused on jobless people.

“I spent a special day with my team on a conservation project where we helped clean our streets in Carrollton, Texas. It was more than just cleaning – we were outside together, bonding and being useful to our community” - Esther Castaneda, Warehouse Technician and Quadpack Foundation volunteer in the United States.

Four Quadpackers participated in the Conservation Garden Clean Up, in Carrollton, Texas.

Quadpack Foundation thanks all the volunteers, organisations and partners who were part of our activities in 2021.

We look forward to making an even greater positive impact in 2022!

Fostering innovation with creative young talent

Imagine a fragrance accessory that is both an aromatherapy device and a bold fashion statement. Too futuristic and conceptual? Perhaps – but this product exists, has a name and a creator: ‘NI’ was developed in 2018 by designer Amaia Aranzabal as a final-year project at the prestigious Elisava design and engineering school in Barcelona, Spain. The challenge for that year’s graduating class had been set by Quadpack, partnering with Elisava for the first time.

New investments put Quadpack at the forefront of smart manufacturing

Increased manufacturing capabilities are one of Quadpack’s priorities for the next four years. By 2025, the beauty packaging provider aims to lead innovations in airless and sustainable products, offering solutions “in the region, for the region”. With a clear strategy and a roadmap in mind, Quadpack’s Operations team has the mission of strengthening its industrial capacity through ambitious investments that are being globally deployed.

Packaging with a positive impact on people and the planet

Sustainability is a long-term commitment with innovation, transparency and change. As a packaging manufacturer and provider, Quadpack is directing the sustainable transformation of its portfolio through its ‘positive-impact packaging’ strategy. By using data-based assessment tools to measure products’ carbon footprint, circularity and other key performance indicators, the strategy brings more accountability to Quadpack’s sustainable innovations.

Louvrette one year on: a successful journey

What happens when German engineering excellence meets creativity born in Barcelona? A raft of innovative solutions, developed, produced and delivered in a way that’s sustainable, creative and efficient. That is just one of the outcomes of the rare but successful ‘marriage’ between German manufacturer Louvrette and Quadpack. A lot has happened in the year since the acquisition, which pushed Quadpack into the Top 10 of European beauty packaging providers.

Sustainability and Innovation in the spotlight

As Sustainability and Innovation are key priorities for Quadpack and the global consumer market, the organisation feels the responsibility to work with supply partners from all regions to establish a new way of doing business, where collaboration is the new competition. On November 13, 2019, Quadpack held a dedicated suppliers’ conference on Sustainability and Innovation in Hong Kong to facilitate this new era of partnerships. Held during the 2019 edition of Cosmopack Asia, in attendance were Quadpack’s top 20 Asia supply partners.
