Avery Dennison Corp. recently released its first Sustainability Report, “Together We’re Stronger,” detailing the company’s 2010 sustainability initiatives, performance and goals. The report describes how Avery Dennison is working collaboratively to bring product, branding and information solutions to market that increase the sustainability of the industries it serves.

“We are delivering on our promise to improve our footprint and work with suppliers, customers, end users and communities to help them become more sustainable,” said Dean Scarborough, chairman, president and CEO.

Significant sustainability accomplishments that the company made in 2010 and which are highlighted in the report include reducing global energy use (indexed to net sales) by 6% from 2009 levels; establishing a web-based metrics system to manage environmental data; building a lifecycle assessment capability into product development processes and launching Avery Dennison(TM) Greenprint, a lifecycle-based tool that helps customers assess the environmental impact of packaging and product choices; and donating $7.2 million of school supplies to U.S. K-12 schools through Avery Dennison’s Back to School events. The report also covers Avery Dennison’s sustainability goals for the future.
