Ball recognised for green efforts
Newsweek, in partnership with Corporate Knights Capital and sustainability experts, has ranked Ball Corporation third among 500 US companies on overall environmental performance.
The Newsweek Green Rankings evaluate the 500 largest publicly-traded companies in the US by market capitalisation and score them based on performance on eight key performance indicators. The eight key indicators are: energy productivity, greenhouse gas emissions, water and waste; reputation; sustainability pay link and board committee; and third party verification of environmental metrics.
“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. “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.”
