Progress Against 2020 Sustainability Goals

  • Goal 1

    By the end of 2020, reduce energy consumption by 5% per billion standard units of production from 2015 levels.

    Status: As of December 31, 2016, we have exceeded this goal, reducing energy consumption by 5.3% per billion standard units. Absolute energy consumption has decreased by 1.3% while we have increased production by over 4.2%.

  • Goal 2

    By the end of 2020, reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 10% per billion standard units of production from 2015 levels.

    Status: As of December 31, 2016, we are more than halfway towards achieving this goal, with greenhouse gas emissions reduced by 6.25% per billion standard units.

Even as beverage can production has increased, we have achieved significant reductions in several key environmental metrics.

Zero work-related fatalities across the ten-year span of our sustainability reporting (2007-2016)

During the span of our sustainability reporting (2007-2016), beverage can production has increased by 50% (approximately 21 billion cans). Against this backdrop, we have achieved significant reductions in several key environmental metrics.
