Our Strategy and Goals
William Painter’s legacy has inspired our employees to follow his example of innovation and sustainability – a tradition that continues to drive our success more than 125 years later. Today, we remain committed to continuous improvement, both in terms of what we make and how we make it. That mindset has been a driving force behind the progression of our sustainability commitments as a Company and helped us achieve our 2020 goals and set our sights on an even more aggressive set of goals for our Twentyby30 program.
With the Twentyby30 program, we aim to build on our accomplishments and bring our sustainability performance to the next level. This includes making operational improvements in energy, water and waste and elevating our focus on material use efficiency, recycling, responsible and ethical sourcing and food contact and safety. We are proud to take bold steps to become the best employer, partner and corporate citizen that we can be.
Our goals were informed by the findings from an updated materiality assessment that we conducted in 2019 and reflect the issues that are important to our stakeholders, including customers, investors and employees. Areas of action were also prioritized based on their level of global urgency and where we could make the greatest impact. Finally, we support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
