Are you looking for sustainable packaging solutions? Well, Ball Corp. is one of the industry’s top canning suppliers, and Newsweek, in partnership with Corporate Knights Capital and leading sustainability experts, ranked Ball Corp. third among the 500 largest U.S. companies on overall environmental performance. If your craft brewery touts environmental stewardship, perhaps your suppliers should too.
“By balancing the economic, environmental and social impacts in all of our decision making and activities globally, setting aggressive goals and reporting regularly on our progress, we’re holding ourselves accountable and ensuring that Ball is successful and sustainable for the long term,” said Bjoern Kulmann, Ball’s director of sustainability, in a press release. “We look at sustainability from a value chain perspective and work with our customers and other partners to jointly reduce the impacts of our operations and our products along their life cycle.”
As one of the world’s most recognized assessments of corporate environmental impact, the Newsweek Green Rankings evaluate the 500 largest publicly-traded companies in the United States by market capitalization and score them based on performance on eight key performance indicators, including: energy productivity; greenhouse gas emissions; water and waste; reputation; sustainability pay link and board committee; and third party verification of environmental metrics.
Ball recently released its 2014 sustainability report, which details its 2012-2013 environmental performance, as well as its sustainability goals for 2014, 2015 and beyond. For more information, visit www.ball.com/sustainability.
