Our Holistic Plan
We believe that all companies and all people have an inherent responsibility to do their part, and we are no different. We are also committed to protecting the health and safety and promoting the wellbeing of our employees around the world, because they are one of our most important assets.
In order to fulfill these responsibilities we developed a holistic plan that goes beyond conservation and aims to deliver value to all touch points for customers, suppliers, and our communities while ensuring a sustainable future for CCL.
We are investing in resource saving technologies and waste reducing processes at our facilities worldwide. By focusing on engineering with more efficient manufacturing, we can offer our customers the best solutions to meet their sustainable packaging needs.
Sustainability is about more than just conservation; it also means being responsible corporate citizens while producing quality products. A key part of this process is working internally with employees and externally with our supply chain partners to create more efficient and environmentally friendly options for our customers. We are working to decrease the impact of transportation, reduce waste, and increase the use of sustainable alternatives within our supply chain.
Being a socially responsible corporation means that we have fair labour practices, maintain safe workplaces, and give back to our employees and the communities in which we operate.
Our holistic approach addresses five areas that are critical to our success:
POLICIES & GOALS
Environmental, Health & Safety Compliance
Compliance with the applicable regulations around the world is closely monitored to ensure appropriate policies and procedures are in place and are being followed.
Senior management also reviews CCL’s global accident statistics, with an objective of an injury free workplace and appropriate responses to all incidents. EHS is an important subset of sustainability and social responsibility and a key focus of senior management.
CCL’s Board has a Human Resources Committee which reviews compensation guidelines, trends and legislation that potentially affect CCL’s business and employees, and reviews any reports of non-compliance of the Global Business Ethics Guide.
While it is beneficial to have publicly stated policies, in order to make continuous improvement, it is important to have measurable goals. Some of CCL’s Workforce Injury & Illness Reduction goals, for instance, are:
- Perform safety audits at 25% of CCL’s plants on an annual basis
- Maintain an annual recognition program to reward CCL operations for EHS excellence
- Engage a minimum of 300 hours of external safety loss control consulting per year
- Report global accident statistics on a quarterly basis to senior management
- Implement and maintain Health & Safety Committees at all operations worldwide
- Maintain a program to perform environmental due diligence prior to acquisition of all new businesses
Some of CCL’s Workforce Wellness goals are:
- Provide financial incentives to employees that complete an annual medical exam
- Implement and maintain Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) to help employees with financial information and legal support resources, tobacco cessation counselling and weight loss/health programs, Guidance Resources® Online and confidential counselling
- Implement and maintain biometric screenings on-site
