Carbon Disclosure Project awards recognition
Ardagh Group has received ‘leadership class’ ratings from the Carbon Disclosure Project for climate change (A-) and for supplier engagement (A). The group’s efforts for water security have been rated as ‘management class’ (B). CDP, a global environmental impact group, drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests. Ardagh has worked with the organisation since 2011.
Environmental performance as part of an overall sustainability strategy is a key focus for Ardagh, which recently established a Global Sustainability Board Committee to drive initiatives in this area, including co-ordinating its global sustainability work, accelerating sustainability programmes and increasing responsiveness. The group’s vision is to be the preferred packaging partner to the world’s leading brands, supplying sustainable and infinitely recyclable glass and metal solutions. "Achieving this important external validation from CDP underlines Ardagh’s commitment towards environmental management" commented John Sadlier, Chief Sustainability Officer, Ardagh Group.
