Sustainability commitments have become a powerful force shaping the direction of packaging companies. Consumers, brands, investors and regulators are expected to continue driving this focus on ESG in manufacturing.
These goals cover a wide range of environmental concerns. In this tracker, Packaging Dive draws from manufacturers’ annual sustainability reports to show their progress on targets related to reducing emissions and transitioning to more sustainable materials. Companies often use different language or timeframes, which limits the ability for direct comparisons, but this resource can help track their progress year over year.
The tracker will be updated as new data is released, and could potentially be expanded to include more companies or categories in the future. We welcome your feedback on how to make this a useful resource via email at [email protected].
