Ball Earns Its Seventh Listing On Dow Jones Sustainability Indices

Ball Corp.

Broomfield, Colorado-based Ball Corp. has earned a listing on the 2019 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) World and North America, which marks the seventh consecutive time Ball has been featured on the indices. This accomplishment acknowledges Ball’s commitment to sustainability and its leadership in delivering innovative and sustainable aluminum beverage packaging solutions.

“Sustainability is one of our top priorities and we are honored to be recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices again this year,” says John A. Hayes, chairman, president and CEO. “Today’s consumers are increasingly concerned about plastic pollution, and we are committed to providing customers with infinitely recyclable and economically valuable aluminum cans, bottles and cups that enable a circular economy. We will continue to advance aluminum’s sustainability credentials across the value chain, and enhance our operational excellence with a focus on renewable energy and product stewardship.”

Earlier this year, Ball announced renewable energy agreements to address 100 percent of its North American electricity load. The company also participates in a variety of partnerships and programs to increase beverage can recycling rates around the world.

The results of the annual DJSI review were recently released by S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM. The DJSI are a family of best-in-class benchmarks for investors who have recognized that sustainable business practices are critical to generating long-term shareholder value and who wish to reflect their sustainability convictions in their investment portfolios. Only the top-ranked companies within each industry are selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index family.

Ball also recently received a gold sustainability rating from EcoVadis, a provider of business sustainability ratings.
