Sealed Air Corporation today announced its partnership with World Wildlife Fund’s Climate Savers program in an effort to collaborate and advance work to mitigate the effects of climate change globally. The Company made the announcement today with the Climate Savers team at the GreenBiz event in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Last year, Sealed Air announced its commitment to reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) in its operations with the introduction of its 2020 Sustainability Goals. Specifically, the Company has committed to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions in its operations by 25%. Also, Sealed Air’s goals relative to climate change include Scope 3 GHG emission reduction targets. The Company has committed that all newly developed products will offer sustainability advantages over the products or solutions they replace. In addition, all new solutions brought to market will include a quantifiable sustainability benefit for customers.
“It is an honor to become part of the Climate Savers program and join like-minded, leading companies who are committed to finding ways to reduce the effects of climate change. We operate in a world with finite resources, and without constant innovation and awareness of the impact of our work, we will find ourselves in a difficult situation,” stated Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sealed Air. “At Sealed Air we pride ourselves on being leaders when it comes to game changing technologies and market disrupting innovations. By harnessing the collective power of the Climate Savers membership, we can continue to make strides to ensure the Earth’s resources are available for many generations to come.”
“Climate Savers partners have two main directives: to set and achieve science-based climate protection commitments and to be a leader and advocate for climate-smart policies and actions within the business sector. Sealed Air has proven they are ready, willing, and able to do both,” said Matthew Banks, manager of energy and climate protection at World Wildlife Fund. “Sealed Air, with our other Climate Savers partners, are showing that – bottom line – reducing greenhouse gas emissions goes hand-in-hand with economic growth. We hope that Sealed Air’s pursuit of innovative and cost-effective solutions to tackle climate change will inspire other companies to deliver on the Paris climate agreement.”
