Avery Dennison has moved up a rank on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable List, launched in February 2018 to acknowledge US companies with the best environmental, social and corporate governance.
“We are honoured to be recognised by Barron's for the second year,” said Georges Gravanis, president, label and graphic materials. “Sustainability is at the centre of everything we do, and our employees are addressing the challenge from every angle. This honour is a testament to their passion and commitment.”
Barron’s developed the list last year in collaboration with Calvert Research and Management. The organisation looked at the 1,000 largest publicly held companies with headquarters in the US. The naming committee looked at 300 sustainability performance indicators. Among them were business ethics and product safety, greenhouse gas emissions and human rights, workplace diversity, and labour relations.
