“It has been an overwhelming experience with the way Avery Dennison Quakertown and our leadership team supported me and helped people in need from Puerto Rico.”
When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in September 2017, it launched a devastating, ongoing humanitarian crisis. Government agencies stepped in, supported by the Red Cross, NGOs and community organizations, to meet the needs of thousands of people left without food, shelter, clean water, or basic supplies. A team of Avery Dennison employees also stepped up, collecting 176 boxes of water, canned food and medicine to be sent to people in need.
Our Label and Graphic Materials North America team (LGM-NA) recently worked to make winter warmer for those in need. The LGM-NA Extended Leadership Team partnered with domestic violence shelter Forbes House to provide blankets and backpacks with school supplies to families in the shelter.

We are putting into action plans that will make our 2025 sustainability goals a reality
Sustainability, one of our company values, means we are focused on the long-term health of our business, planet and communities. Our efforts over the last few years have dramatically raised the bar, and recently resulted in our ranking #72 on Barron’s first list of 100 Most Sustainable Companies.
As a company built on breakthroughs we are always looking forward to the future! Our global R&D of over 300+ engineers, chemists and material scientists are focussed on the next series of innovations that will create the future of packaging. This article, on page four of the report, created last year with Raconteur talks to our vision in intelligent labelling and sustainability - and how combined they can reduce waste across multiple industry segments.
“Our teamwork, both regionally and globally, results in solutions that are much greater than if one region worked alone.”

Back in August this year I attended the opening of our Innovation and Knowledge Center in Pune, India - an expansion of our facilities to celebrate our 20 year anniversary in the country. The center is one of 7 global Innovation and Knowledge centers, each of which represent the specific needs of their region as well as having unique perspectives and specialist material science expertise.

Last week the team went to the EDIE Sustainability Awards 2018. We were proud to be a finalist for the employee engagement and behavioural change category for our Sustainable September campaign.
