Crown cuts waste to landfill by 37% in sustainability drive

The metal packaging giant has published its third global sustainability report which compared the figures to its first report in 2007, showing 9% more waste recycled per billion cans, and more than 100% more waste converted to energy, an increase of nearly 3,000 metric tons.

Crown also used 14% less coatings since 2007, representing a reduction of nearly 9,000 metric tons.

There has also been a 28% reduction in its days away case rate since 2007, recordable injury cases have decreased by 39% since 2009, zero work-related fatalities during its entire reporting period since 2007.

Timothy  Donahue, president and chief operating officer of Crown, said the company used innovative approaches to infuse sustainability across the board.
“Some of our greatest achievements in this reporting cycle are in the areas of waste management, coatings reduction and employee safety. We are committed to continuous improvement in these areas and others as we increase global production capacity and build our presence in new markets.”

The report also highlighted the credentials of metal packaging – claiming that if the entire fruit and vegetable supply in the United States was canned, rather than packaged for refrigeration or freezing, an estimated seven million metric tons of food would be saved – equivalent to about 22 million metric tons of CO2.
