Our Approach

At Ball Corporation, we believe in our people, our culture and our ability to deliver value to our stakeholders. Like uncompromising integrity and customer focus, being sustainable is part of our Drive for 10 vision, which leverages Ball’s strengths to achieve continued long-term success.

Our triple bottom-line approach to sustainability has evolved since it was formalized in 2006 and, today, is supported by several global policies, position statements, and tools for performance monitoring, continuous improvement and best-practice sharing. We also have embedded sustainability into our strategic planning and build sustainability goals from the bottom up. Individual plants are ultimately accountable for their sustainability performance, which is tied to each plant manager’s performance appraisal. We strive to put the right people, processes and partners in place to help us create long-term shared value and achieve our sustainability vision.
