Avery Dennison Corporation was again recognized on the Barron’s list 100 Most Sustainable Companies, moving up a rank since the index was first launched in February 2018. The list acknowledges U.S. companies for environmental, social and corporate governance factors.
“We are honored to be recognized by Barron's for the second year," says Georges Gravanis, president, Label and Graphic Materials. "Sustainability is at the center of everything we do, and our employees are addressing the challenge from every angle. This honor is a testament to their passion and commitment.”
Barron’s developed the list last year in collaboration with Calvert Research and Management. The organization looked at the 1,000 largest publicly-held companies with headquarters in the United States. The naming committee looked at 300 sustainability performance indicators. Among them were business ethics and product safety, greenhouse gas emissions and human rights, workplace diversity and labor relations.
“We continue to make solid progress toward our 2025 sustainability goals, with increased urgency to address plastic recyclability and industry waste, while staying very close to our industry partners and our communities,” Gravanis said.
