Avery Dennison named to Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies List for 2019

February 22, 2019

Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY), was recently recognized on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies List, moving up a rank since the index was first launched in February 2018. The list acknowledges leading U.S. companies, assessed for environmental, social, and corporate governance factors.

“We are honored to be recognized by Barron's for the second year,” said Georges Gravanis, president, Label and Graphic Materials. “Sustainability is at the center of everything we do, and our employees are addressing the challenge from every angle. This honor is a testament to their passion and commitment.”

Barron’s, a U.S-based publication covering the financial and investment industries, developed the list last year in collaboration with Calvert Research and Management. The organization looked at the 1,000 largest publicly held companies with headquarters in the United States. The naming committee looked at 300 sustainability performance indicators. Among them were business ethics and product safety, greenhouse gas emissions and human rights, workplace diversity, and labor relations.

“We continue to make solid progress toward our 2025 sustainability goals, with increased urgency to address plastic recyclability and industry waste, while staying very close to our industry partners and our communities,” said Gravanis.
