Since establishing sustainability goals in 2008, the company has made significant progress on its initiatives. The 2017 Sustainability and Social Responsibility Report provides an overview of the company’s activities with references to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards. In preparing the report, the company engaged third parties to generate the energy, carbon emissions and water metrics.
“Sustainability and social responsibility are at the heart of what we do at Graphic Packaging,” said president and CEO Michael Doss. “This includes the renewable and recyclable paperboard-based cartons and foodservice containers we produce for our customers from renewable wood fiber, our focus on continually reducing our raw material consumption and environmental footprint, and our significant involvement in the communities where we operate.”
