Sustainability deals with global and regional issues concerning the environment, the economy and social responsibility; our sustainability pillars. Ambitious sustainability targets are included in our long term strategic planning. Our aim is to reduce any negative environmental impact whilst remaining economically sustainable and socially responsible.
Ardagh’s goal is to become the leading supplier of inherently sustainable packaging. Both glass and metal are permanent materials and are therefore infinitely recyclable without any loss of quality. As part of functional engagements with our customers, our team addresses key sustainability challenges such as climate change, water stewardship and responsible sourcing.
