Kite Packaging is committed to minimising our impact on the Environment. From maximising the use of recycled and recyclable materials in our products, and using suppliers who recognise their environmental responsibilities to minimising packaging waste both on-site and through our service offering, we take a proactive approach to supporting our environment.

We are the only Packaging Company to run a Compliance Scheme (KES) for the Packaging Regulations and were one of the first packaging organisations to be accredited with ISO 14001:2004.

Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Statement of Compliance

Many of Kite Packaging’s customers are actively reviewing their own supply chains with regard to the Modern Slavery Act and engaging with Kite in this respect. Kite has zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking and supports the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Kite therefore undertakes steps to ensure that there is no modern slavery in its own business. All employment of staff by Kite is in the UK and is conducted in terms of UK law with regard to employment and health & safety.

The various operations within Kite provide services, solutions and products to businesses and consumers in the UK. The majority of the products are sourced and manufactured in the UK. Certain products are also purchased from outside of the UK. With regard to this supply chain, Kite conducts routine reviews and monitors supplier performance. All preferred suppliers are required to sign the Kite’s Supplier Code of Conduct which includes a statement of compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Kite Packaging Code of Ethics & Supplier Code of Conduct

Kite Packaging prides itself on operating to the highest ethical standards. To support this, all our preferred supplier partners and Kite employees are required to sign a ‘Code of Ethics & Supplier Code of Conduct’ agreement, which outlines both the ethical codes Kite works to in its day-to-day business practices, and the conduct we expect from our suppliers.

Both the Kite Code of Ethics and Supplier Code of Conduct has been prepared with anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws at the forefront, and full awareness regarding transparency when communicating financial results.
