Crown is proud to issue its first sustainability report. We hope you’ll spend some time learning about the important role sustainability has within our organization, not only from the operations and product perspectives, but through our commitment to our employees and communities.
While we’ve never formally reported about our sustainability efforts until now, it’s important for you to know that from the day our company was founded in 1892, we’ve lived by its principles. That’s in large part due to our relentless focus on safety, innovation and efficiency. Those three values are reflected in our World-Class Performance (WCP) program, which has served as the cornerstone for our sustainability efforts for nearly two decades.
You can read more about WCP and the work we’ve done to address the economic, environmental and social aspects of sustainability in our global operations in the report by clicking here. But just as importantly, you’ll learn about metal packaging’s strong sustainability profile.
This section of our corporate website has been designed to give you easy access to the full report and executive summaries in multiple languages, which will launch in just a few weeks. It also provides additional insight into the work we’re doing globally, highlights the benefits metal packaging offers to brand owners, retailers and consumers and cites industry resources that can provide more information about metal packaging and sustainability in general.
Our intent is to formally report on sustainability a biennial basis going forward, so in the meantime, we’ll use this forum to share new successes with you. We hope you’ll return to the site periodically to see what’s changed.
John W. Conway
Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer
