How We Integrate Sustainability



Health & Safety


With over 4000 people, the safety of the workers is the most serious element to consider at FPS Flexible Packaging Solutions. No operation is more important than the safety and health of our colleagues, therefore there is a priority in all FPS workplaces to ensure this.

We are very proud that FPS achieved a best-in-class performance with an MCR of 0.12  for 2022. Our target is to reach a Medical Case Rate of Zero in all facilities by 2025.

Each facility holds an annual Safety Week with the goal of raising safety awareness. All production employees in FPS receive safety training, ensuring our safety culture is understood and practised every day.

9 out of 14 FPS facilities had zero accidents in FY 2020, and 10 FPS facilities received the Chairman's Safety Excellence award, for scoring a 90% or higher on a third-party safety audit and achieving a Medical Case Rate of zero.
