Dec. 21, 2021 - Graphic Packaging Holding Company has been named to Newsweek's 2022 list of America's Most Responsible Companies for a second year in a row. The recognition is based on a detailed analysis of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) factors.
The company was also recognized on Forbes' inaugural list of the World's Top Female-Friendly Companies. The list was based on sentiment compiled from a women-only survey with 85,000 participants, focusing on several aspects of the female employees' experience.
"Being recognized for a second year by Newsweek for corporate responsibility as well as being included on Forbes' inaugural list of Top Female-Friendly Companies is a true honor," said Michael Doss, President and Chief Executive Officer. "At Graphic Packaging, we are committed to delivering sustainable fiber-based consumer packaging solutions through a high-performance company culture that embraces diversity. We are committed to positive change and advancement of our environmental, social and governance initiatives. The recognitions demonstrate the progress we have made and will continue to drive to benefit all stakeholders."
America's Most Responsible Companies were selected from 2,000 of the largest U.S. companies based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from corporate annual reports, sustainability reports and corporate citizenship reports, in addition to an independent survey of 11,000 U.S. residents to evaluate company reputations. The final list, which spans 14 industries, recognizes the top 500 companies with the highest scores as the most responsible companies in the United States.
The World's Top Female-Friendly Companies were selected based on survey responses from over 80,000 women in 40 countries around the world. Statista asked respondents to evaluate their companies on sexism, supportive policies for women and balanced recruitment. The final list ranks the 300 companies that received the most recommendations and have the most gender-diverse boards and executive ranks.
