Global packaging company and IIRSM join forces to advance risk management

IIRSM and global packaging company Sonoco have launched a new partnership to advance standards of risk and safety management.

With 22,000 employees working in more than 300 operations in 32 countries, Sonoco serves some of the World’s best known brands in 85 nations.

The company ranked first in the packaging sector on Fortune’s World Most Admired Companies for 2022 as well as being included in Barron's 100 Most Sustainable Companies for the fourth consecutive year.

IIRSM is both a professional membership organisation for those responsible for managing risk in all its forms and a strategic partner of corporates operating across industries.

The Institute works collaboratively for mutual benefit with a wide network of partners and supporters that share its belief that everyone should be empowered to identify, manage and communicate risk.

Together, the two organisations will collaborate on influencing the risk agenda and raising awareness and standards of risk and safety management.

Steff Williams, Sonoco’s Director of Safety - Europe, said: “Learning never ends. Becoming a partner with IIRSM will open up opportunities for new collaboration, networking, sharing and learning how to manage risk in the workplace more effectively.”

IIRSM Chief Executive Phillip Pearson said: “Sonoco is a hugely influential company with a global workforce. They are recognised as one of our most sustainable companies so we are delighted to get the opportunity to work with them on shaping safer, healthier and more sustainable work environments.”
