Ball Corporation announced that it had been named in Sustainalytics’ 2023 list for top-rated companies for environmental, social and governance (ESG).
The company wrote on social media: “We’re proud to share that Ball has been included in @Sustainalytics’s 2023 list of Top-Rated ESG Companies, recognising the work our team has done with #ESG programs and policies!”
Ball was deemed to have an ESG risk rating of 10.8, which is on the ‘low risk’ range. Companies with a score of less than 10 go into the ‘negligible’ range.

The company is focused on increasing capacity amid a wave of new developed-market demand, while also investing in faster-growing emerging-market economies. Ball maintains a small presence in the U.S. defence industry through its aerospace segment.
The company reports four segments—beverage packaging, North and Central America (44% of revenue), beverage packaging, EMEA (25%), beverage packaging, South America (14%), aerospace (14%)—and it generated $15.3 billion in revenue in 2022.
