DS Smith Group PLC is a leading provider of corrugated and plastics packaging, supported by paper and recycling operations. The company operates across 25 countries and employs around 21,500 people. Business operates on three core principals; Perpetual Devotion, Closed Loop Recycling and the Power of Less.

The Opportunity

DS Smith are committed to ensuring their people understand the core themes associated with the industry they work in and  therefore realise how their own brand helps organisations all over Europe achieve truly sustainable recycling and waste management strategies.

The Project

We are providing DS Smith employees with a uniquely catered and comprehensive training programme, focused around the use of our CIWM accredited Waste Expert product.

The core aim of the programme is to help staff understand why  zero waste, the waste hierarchy and the circular economy are important to DS Smith as a company and add further value to the services provided to their customers.

The Benefits

A much more time, cost effective and sustainable way to train staff.

Subscription service means that learning is continuous, rather than a more-off training impact

A fully accredited process and a standard you can trust ” Cloud Sustainability tools are exclusively accredited by CIWM


Tim Price, Marketing Director, DS Smith

“Cloud Sustainability’s Waste Expert provides the perfect learning model for us to enhance the knowledge, and professionalism, of people at all levels in the organisation. A perfect ‘it does what it says on the box’ solution, that was flexible enough to be tailored to suit our brand values and L&D needs.
