What we make may change.

Who we are never will.

We are passionate, committed people and together we can achieve extraordinary things. That’s who we’ve been since we started 140 years ago, and who we continue to be. 

Whether we’re developing packaging that’s infinitely recyclable or aerospace solutions that give us all a deeper understanding of the universe, our focus is on sustainability. Not just environmental sustainability, but social and economic sustainability too.

For some, it’s a buzzword, but for us, it’s an ideal we’ve had for more than a century:  be responsible for what you make, how you make it, and how you treat the people you work and live with. 

It the power of we, not me, that drives us every day to reach for our Drive for 10 vision

“It is the people who we work with every day that make Ball a special place to work. Some of the nicest, smartest, most caring, supportive, and determined people I have ever met work at Ball. I feel comfortable reaching out to anyone in the company who might be able to assist me with a question, from engineers to accountants.

A Welcoming Culture

“I decided that while I had been fortunate in being equipped with a wonderful support network, privileged education and a fierce ambition and resilience, I would dedicate the rest of my career ensuring anyone who were not so fortunate, but also belonged to minority groups, were provided with the necessary opportunity to achieve their maximum career success and happiness like I have.

I am unstoppable in my role and in the impact I can make because Ball makes it possible.”

“We are all facing challenges in these pandemic times and it is very touching to see that Ball is willing to help the communities in need surrounding our plant. I’m very proud to be part of this story with opportunity to help nursing homes, day care centers, schools and to take part in campaigns for the donation of food, milk, warm clothing, and books. Together we are making a difference to build a better future!”

COMMUNITY

We are deeply committed to the communities where we live and work and this been an integral part of our culture ever since the five Ball brothers founded the company in 1880.

Our people take part in company-sponsored volunteer and donation opportunities that touch topics that are important to us, including recycling initiatives, COVID relief efforts and STEM education, just to name a few!

We also provide opportunities for our employees to give to the organizations that mean the most to them personally, and we double those efforts with a program to match donations and dollars for volunteer time!

“I don't think that just one thing exemplifies Ball's culture. Seeing the stories about employees around the globe doing amazing local projects to help people impacted by COVID-19 has been inspirational. I love that Ball really strives to make a difference in the communities in which we operate. And in line with that I have enjoyed partnering with other Ball employees to volunteer at A Precious Child during Who We Are Month each September, when we celebrate our culture and people.”

"In Serbia, we have a proverb 'you can tell the fearless in times of trouble'. I joined the company shortly before the pandemic and immediately felt the team spirit, harmony, and solidarity among colleagues. This saying describes my impression of the Ball culture while navigating through this challenging period.

After less than a year of work, I can already say that I'm a part of the Ball family, which values each one of its employees because - every individual counts!"

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is core to who we are at Ball and a key element in our Drive for 10 visions. We started our formal sustainability journey with six sustainability priorities in our operations. And when you wanted more, we listened. Our stakeholders have made it clear that sustainability is most critical to them. That’s why it is one of our top priorities.

So with the help of our dedicated employees, dynamic partners, and several multi-stakeholder partnerships, together we’re up for the challenge.
