“Our products, made from permanent materials and therefore inherently sustainable and circular in nature, position Ardagh and our operating businesses strongly within the circular economy,” said Paul Coulson, Chairman of Ardagh. “We remain focused on progressing our sustainability roadmap and will continue to take action to lead the transition to the low carbon circular economy, of which we are proud that our packaging products are a part of.”
