Our people want to have an impact, and we are relentless about innovating new solutions that can transform the world.

That is why sustainability is integral to every aspect of our business—from our caring, high-performance growth culture, to manufacturing responsibly, and offering solutions to our customers that eliminate waste and combat climate change. It is core to the strategic investments we make, how we innovate and generate growth, and our efforts to lead collaborations that are transforming the industry.

Our vision to become a world-class digitally driven company automating sustainable packaging solutions is of real significance. It enables us to generate environmental, social and economic value that exceeds the investment, and creates a positive impact on our stakeholders and society. We call this SEE Net Positive.

In the areas where we can have the greatest direct impact, we have set goals for advancing sustainable development by accelerating a circular economy, mitigating climate change, eliminating resource waste, achieving zero harm, and creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace and culture.
