Berry Global’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report for 2022 has shown that it increased its purchase of post-consumer plastics by 28% in that year.

It also increased circular plastic purchased by 21% through investments in its subsidiary Berry Circular Polymers and partnerships with key resin suppliers.


In addition, 79% of its fast-moving consumer products are now reusable, recyclable and/or compostable.

Its European flexible films division more than doubled the use of recycled content in packaging products to 10,500 tonnes.

Berry Global chief executive and chairman of the board Tom Salmon said: “With growth and leadership comes responsibility. We take our role as a responsible corporate citizen seriously – throughout our company and across the global value chain.

“The compilation of efforts from our 46,000 team members to prioritize our ESG commitments is evident at every level of our business, from making meaningful progress toward achieving our climate change goals to bolstering our commitment to safety with a Total Recordable Incident Rate considerably below the industry average.”
