Every day, we commit ourselves to the singular notion that smart packaging is more than plastics, cardboard, and paper– it’s a promise to people, products, and our planet.
At Sonoco, we believe People Build Businesses by Doing the Right Thing. This principle guides all our actions—maintaining our commitment to our customers, treating our employees with respect, delivering shareholder value, making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work, and taking steps to lessen our impact on the environment.
