“Ball Corporation is committed to a clear and ambitious climate change plan, a plan that has been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative which aims to limit global warming. We have committed to reduce absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from business operations as well as value chain GHG emissions per can. In fact, in 2019, Ball was one of the top ten corporate renewable energy buyers in the United States and is now covering all of its operations in the European Union, Serbia and the UK with renewable energy.
“The Corporate Leaders Groups are providing a unique forum for us to work together with other businesses to support more ambitious climate policy in Europe and in the UK.”
