Smurfit Kappa’s RCF project embraces, drives, and pushes the boundaries of organisational ESG thinking
By setting five key performance indicator goals for a recent sustainability-linked RCF – and requiring success in all of them to gain the maximum margin benefit – Smurfit Kappa’s treasury team has demonstrated how a cross-functional project can unify a business. It also earns it the well-deserved 2021 Treasury4Good Award for Best Sustainable Finance Project.
