Ardagh Group Earns A- from CDP
The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has awarded Ardagh Group its Leadership Class ratings for sustainability performance – scoring Ardagh Group A- for climate change and A- for water management. The CDP is a not-for-profit that runs a global disclosure system which helps different stakeholders to manage environmental impacts.
“Ardagh’s teams are focussed on driving our sustainability strategy across all its dimensions,” said John Sadlier, Ardagh’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “The ratings from CDP evidence our constant focus on minimising our environmental footprint. While doing so, we actively support our customers in their own sustainability activities.”
Ardagh’s consistently strong CDP climate change rating and its increased rating for water management, place it among the highest-rated companies in all industries by CDP.
“We are delighted to receive this Leadership Class rating” said Shaun Murphy, Ardagh’s COO. “Environmental responsibility is at the heart of everything that we do. Our new sustainability strategy sets higher standards to help drive Ardagh to meet our customer and end consumers’ high expectations of sustainable packaging. We are very excited about the road ahead”.
Ardagh’s vision is to be the preferred packaging partner to the world’s leading brands, supplying sustainable and infinitely recyclable metal and glass packaging. Sustainability is at the core of Ardagh’s activities and involves not only delivering a reduced environmental impact but also achieving sound economic performance while making a positive social contribution.
