Quadpack Manufacturing Quality Manager Claudia Barros always wanted to volunteer in a social project but never had the chance until she joined the company a year ago. During her onboarding in Barcelona, she was introduced to the Quadpack Foundation. Since then, she’s been involved in three different projects, helping young people build their skill sets and career plans.
In April 2022, Quadpack was certified as B Corp, a distinction given to a select group of 5,000-plus purpose-driven businesses around the world. We now belong to a community composed of global sustainability role models .
Eight Quadpackers from France have engaged in a volunteer project to help young people prepare for the job market. The project is part of Pro'Pulse, a free preparatory course with a personalised and comprehensive approach that facilitates access to apprenticeship for young people without qualifications.
Quadpack has partnered with Life Terra, a pan-European project endorsed by the European Commission whose goal is to reinforce the human connection with nature and restore climate-resilient forests to help mitigate climate change.
Quadpack Foundation has partnered with UAB Research Park to support scientific research on microplastics and their effects on people and the environment. The foundation sponsored the 12th edition of Generació d’Idees, an initiative that aims to foster the entrepreneurial spirit and innovation culture among researchers and doctoral students, connecting them with the current challenges of industries.
With more than 20 projects in ten countries, the non-profit organisation has grown its reach and governance. A record number of 96 Quadpackers engaged in volunteering activities throughout the world.
Quadpack Foundation, the non-profit arm of Quadpack, is partnering with the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross to help improve the employment prospects of people at risk of social exclusion.
From May to July, 13 volunteers from Quadpack went to the Casal dels Infants’ headquarters, in Barcelona, to share their knowledge and professional experiences with 18 people at risk of social exclusion. While Casal dels Infants covers the behavioural component of the training, the technical subjects are taught by experts – volunteers that work in organisations like Quadpack.
A Quadpack Foundation partner, the Catalan charity Fundació Impulsa connects businesses and students to help improve their opportunities. We interviewed Alejandra Manau, Executive Director, and Marta Miró, Programme Coordinator of Fundació Impulsa, about their projects' reach and importance.
As part of its commitment to youth and environmental causes, Quadpack increased donations to the foundation for the fifth consecutive year, reaching one per cent of its EBITDA and bringing positive impact to more than 43,000 lives.
The global reach of projects developed by the non-profit organisation proves that social action is in the heart of Quadpack’s commitment with its surrounding communities. The non-profit organisation, established in 2016 went from Good to Great, ending the year with a record mark of 10 projects in 7 countries.
Quadpack Foundation, the charitable arm of Quadpack, is particularly concerned with helping disadvantaged children. As Accounting Manager at Quadpack’s Dallas-based, US Distributor East Hill Industries, Casandra Sanders was well aware of Quadpack Foundation’s values. She thought them a good fit with Los Primos Dallas, a local, non-profit organization she herself is involved with.
