We are committed to reducing the environmental footprint of our global operations
Sonoco Alcore’s cores are 100% recyclable and are made of recycled OCC (old corrugated containers). Our parent company, Sonoco, has established metrics to measure progress towards reduction of energy consumption, greenhouse gas (GHG) and other air emissions, water usage and wastes. Additionally, the Company maintains an ongoing commitment to social responsibility and our economic goals. See how Sonoco Alcore is facilitating sustainable solutions.
Sonoco is working toward cutting greenhouse gas emissions from our North American facilities by 15% by 2013 and are aggressively pursuing our goal of having 10% of our manufacturing facilities at landfill free by 2014.
Sonoco is also a proud member of the prestigious 2012/2013 Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and was awarded both Gold Class and Sector Leader status by RobecoSAM (Sustainable Asset Management) for the 2012 improvement in the sustainability of our global operations. Newsweek magazine named us one of its 500 Greenest Large American Companies in its 2012 Green Rankings for a fourth consecutive year, and we were named one of the 2012 Top 100 Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility magazine.
