PCA has been named to Newsweek magazine’s 2020 list of “America’s Most Responsible Companies” — one of only 300 companies to make the list.
According to Michael Manney, PCA’s Corporate Sustainability Manager: “This recognition is really an acknowledgement of the hard work of PCA’s 15,000 employees. We all share in our company’s vision of doing the right things, utilizing the power of strong collaborative relationships and delivering innovative packaging solutions and an outstanding service experience. Our sustainability strategy is no different than our business strategy: People ● Customers ● Trust.”
To receive this recognition, the largest 2,000 U.S. companies by revenue are considered. To be eligible, companies must publish a Sustainability Report (PCA’s Responsibility Report is available at www.packagingcorp.com/pca-responsibility-report) and meet certain other criteria. Statista (one of the largest statistics database companies in the world) evaluated the remaining companies on relevant performance indicators in three areas: environmental stewardship, social responsibility and corporate governance. The process also involves a survey of more than 6,000 U.S. citizens regarding their perception of the companies being considered.
Mark Kowlzan, PCA’s Chairman and CEO said: “We’ve always felt we have a great story to tell, and I’m proud that our people have been recognized for the value they create — doing well by doing good. Our approach to social, environmental and economic responsibility begins with our commitment to serving our customers and our employees and extends to the communities in which we do business.”
The full list of America’s Most Responsible Companies was published in the print edition of Newsweek magazine’s December 6–13, 2019, issue and can be found online at www.newsweek.com/americas-most-responsible-companies-2020.
