Taking Global Action

Making meaningful strides on our sustainability journey requires the commitment and support of every Crown employee around the world. At the Corporate level, we focus on establishing a roadmap for sustainability and implementing initiatives that can extend across our global network. At the plant level, our teams make critical contributions to our advancement toward greener, leaner operations and exemplify good corporate citizenship in our local communities.

We developed the biennial Chairman’s Sustainability Awards program to recognize and celebrate the manufacturing facilities that have shown outstanding leadership and innovation in the three dimensions of sustainability. Many of the initiatives highlighted by the program since its inception have been scalable to other facilities, amplifying their impact on our overall sustainability efforts.

The 2019 awards include recognition of plants in our Transit Packaging Division for the first time.

Our winning plants have innovated on the shop floor and in manufacturing processes, gone above and beyond to support their employees and made valued contributions to their local communities. The successes achieved by our 2019 winners inspire our future progress and help raise our standards of how we can contribute to sustainability on a global level.
