Curtis Packaging released its 2010 Sustainability Report last month furthering its ongoing commitment to transparent reporting. The document is Curtis’ second complete corporate social responsibility report following the Global Reporting Initiative’s extensive Level C guidelines, and its third report overall. The report details accomplishments for 2010, such as beginning the ISO-14001 certification process, and lays out a set of concrete goals for 2011, including a drive to divert waste to recycling. “We are proud to share our past progress and vision of the future” said Don Droppo, Jr. President & CEO. The report also provides data in several key areas including: climate and energy, materials and waste, employee health and safety, and customer satisfaction.

“One of our main objectives in this effort was ensuring that our stakeholders can easily access and digest a large amount of information about our commitment to people, planet, and profits” said Beth Scherer, Director of Sustainability. To that end, the full report was reviewed by Ceres, an organization that leads a national coalition of investors, environmental organizations and other public interest groups working with companies to address sustainability challenges such as global climate change and water scarcity. Curtis has been a Ceres member since 2008.

In addition, the full report is accompanied by a shorter Key Statistics brochure that is intended to provide major points of information at a glance. Both documents are available on the Curtis Packaging website. The full report will also be made available through the Global Reporting Initiative database. Additional information on Curtis’ carbon footprint is available through the Carbon Disclosure Project, an independent non-profit that holds a database of primary corporate climate change information.
