The global food supply consistently produces enough food to feed every single person in the world. And yet, nearly 1 billion people are undernourished and another 1 billion are going hungry every year.
Last month, world leaders met at the United Nations to define the sustainable development agenda through 2030. This is important, because there is tremendous power in coming together across 193 countries to discuss what it takes to build a world we can all live and thrive in.

This week we published our latest sustainability report and launched our new and ambitious 2020 Sustainability Goals. I am also pleased to announce that Sealed Air also signed the Renewable Energy Buyer’s Principles, a joint initiative of the World Wildlife Fund and the World Resources Institute. Two of our 2020 Sustainability Goals are to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations and to drive actions which benefit society by conserving resources. Availability of cost-competitive renewable energy helps us to meet these goals.

Announcing Our Annual Sustainability Report and 2020 Sustainability Goals
Since our company’s founding, Sealed Air has provided solutions for our customers and solutions for the world. From the start, Bubble Wrap was truly revolutionary both as a product and as a value proposition. It could reduce total packaging cost by using less material, reduce packaging size and weight, and reduce loss from damage. In other words, it promoted sustainability long before it was fashionable.

Earlier this year, we launched Sealed Air’s Better Way for Life Plan and 2020 Sustainability Goals. As you would expect, a lot of work was done behind the scenes to set such aggressive commitments. To make sure we weren’t creating a strategy in a vacuum, we collected feedback from suppliers, customers, and non-governmental organizations to gain valuable insights and identify the most material issues to the company and our key stakeholders. The results were Sealed Air’s first materiality assessment and matrix.
