Georges Gravanis, president, label and graphic materials, said, “We are honoured to be recognised by Barron's for the second year. Sustainability is at the centre of everything we do, and our employees are addressing the challenge from every angle. This honour is a testament to their passion and commitment.”

Barron developed the list in collaboration with Calvert Research and Management, to take at 1,000 publicly held companies that had its headquarters in the United States.

The naming committee viewed  300 sustainability performance indicators. Among them were business ethics and product safety, greenhouse gas emissions and human rights, workplace diversity, and labour relations.

“We continue to make solid progress toward our 2025 sustainability goals, with increased urgency to address plastic recyclability and industrial waste, while staying very close to our industry partners and our communities,” added Gravanis.
