SEALED AIR RECOGNIZED FOR SUPPLIER ENGAGEMENT ON CLIMATE CHANGE

 

Company Earns Spot on the 2022 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard

March 28, 2023

Sealed Air (NYSE: SEE) has been recognized by CDP as a Supplier Engagement Leader for partnering with its suppliers on climate change and playing a crucial role in the transition towards the net-zero sustainable economy. This marks Sealed Air’s fourth consecutive Supplier Engagement Leader recognition and follows the company’s recent A- score from CDP for its climate change efforts and B score for water security.

Based on its 2022 CDP disclosure, Sealed Air is among the top 8% assessed for supplier engagement on climate change. CDP, a voluntary reporting framework, assesses performance on supplier engagement using climate change questionnaire responses on governance, targets, scope 3 emissions, and value chain engagement.

“Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions requires collaborating with our suppliers,” said Terry Grill, Sealed Air’s Sustainability and Advocacy Leader. “We solicit feedback from our suppliers at the beginning of product development so we can offer our customers solutions that not only meet their packaging needs but also reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the supply chain.”

Sealed Air is focused on direct emissions as well as upstream and downstream. While the company partners with suppliers to reduce overall emissions, it also partners with customers to reduce their global emissions where there is an even greater ability to reduce total supply chain emissions.

“This year's report shows environmental action is not happening at the speed, scale and scope required to limit global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees, with many companies still not acknowledging that their impact on the environment extends far beyond their operations and that of climate change,” said Sonya Bhonsle, CDP’s Global Head of Value Chains. “We need to see environmental leadership from companies right now by tackling their impacts on climate change and nature together, working with their suppliers in an integrated way that includes nature as standard, and incentivizing this engagement within their organization.”

Liquid packaging and dispensing provider Liquibox, which Sealed Air acquired in February, earned a CDP Supplier Engagement rating of B for 2022. Progress on Sealed Air’s climate goals are outlined in its Global Impact Report.

A list of all the companies achieving a place on the 2022 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard is available on the organization’s website.
