Reducing Our Environmental Footprint
Our primary product – metal packaging – embodies sustainability in its manufacture and its contributions to the circular economy. While effective management and conservation of resources have always been the bedrock of Crown’s operations, as our global footprint has grown and production volumes have increased, these principles have taken on new meaning.
In recognition of this, we established two ambitious sustainability goals in 2016, focusing on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption by 2020. We are proud to report that we are making strong progress against these goals, particularly in the area of greenhouse gas emissions. In just three years, we have achieved 94% of our greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal – an incredible performance. Our next set of sustainability goals continues to prioritize these issues and focuses on several new areas.
We know that operating unsustainably is detrimental to long-term success and impacts profitability and our reputation with our key stakeholders. As such, we rely on an environmental management system to help us manage compliance, reduce costs and increase efficiencies.
