Greif, Inc., a global leader in industrial packaging products and services, announced today it has received two additional awards recognizing the company’s leadership and continued commitment to corporate social responsibility.
Greif was recognized with an “A-” rating in climate change by CDP – a non-profit organization that runs the global disclosure system for entities to manage their environmental impact. The rating places Greif in the “Leadership” category and reflects the company’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and effectively manage its climate risks and opportunities.
A detailed and independent methodology was used by CDP to assess nearly 20,000 companies that disclosed environmental data in 2022. Scores of “A” to “D-” were awarded based on the comprehensiveness of the data disclosed, awareness and management of environmental risks, and use of best practices associated with environmental leadership.
In addition, Newsweek recognized Greif as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies for the fourth year in a row. Companies were selected based on their environmental, social, and corporate governance performance found in publicly available corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports, sustainability reports, as well as the results from a third-party independent survey.
“We are honored to receive these recognitions,” said Ole Rosgaard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Greif. “Our work to operate more responsibly and sustainably ensures we are doing the right thing for our colleagues, our customers, our planet, and our shareholders.”
