A Few Details About Our Report

This report includes environmental, economic and social data from facilities within Crown’s three operating divisions (Crown Americas, Crown Europe and Crown Asia Pacific). The data also reflects any acquired or divested facilities that were operated by Crown for the reporting period of January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016. It also includes information from the Company’s regional headquarter locations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.; Baar, Switzerland; and Singapore and our R&D facilities in Alsip, Illinois, U.S.; Lancaster, Ohio, U.S.; and Wantage, U.K. Data resulting from assets gained during the acquisitions of Mivisa and EMPAQUE have been included in our sustainability reporting for the first time.

Environmental data from our specialty packaging plants and our CMB Engineering equipment and tooling division have not been included in this report since there is too much variability from year to year in their product portfolio to allow the effective normalization of data and, together, it represents less than 5% of Crown’s overall revenue. However, the employee demographics, safety performance and other elements of social sustainability are included. This is consistent with how we reported data in the 2013 and 2015 Sustainability Reports. There are no restatements of information provided in previous reports.
