Our ESG strategy
At Pactiv Evergreen, we strive to operate with respect for the environment, and we are committed to sustainability across our product portfolio, our manufacturing and supply chain and our communities.
When we developed our ESG strategy, we focused on three areas: Planet, Products and People. We have established key work streams across these areas and have started setting goals to drive our action. In parallel, we also established strong ESG governance across the company, from our Sustainability Champions in our operations to our Board of Directors.
More recently, our ESG materiality assessment confirmed our focus areas and helped expand our scope of work to additional topics valued by our employees, leaders and other stakeholders. We know that this will further support our commitment to lead and inspire sustainability stewardship.

Protecting the Sustainability of our Forests
Our success as a company depends on a sustainable supply of wood fiber. After all, over half of the materials by weight that go into our products use wood fiber as a key input. But that is only part of the reason we support the sustainability of our forests.
Forests provide social and economic value to the communities in which we live and work. They offer sources of income for landowners and jobs for local residents, spaces for recreation and habitats for many species. They also help to mitigate the effects of climate change by providing long-term capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide, the primary greenhouse gas. To protect these forest values, we’re committed to promoting responsible forest management practices and helping landowners obtain the resources they need to implement them.

Collaborating for a Sustainable Future
At Pactiv Evergreen, we believe that partnerships are the key to driving meaningful change. As just one manufacturer, we cannot by ourselves transform the complex patchwork of recycling and composting systems across North America.
Therefore, we collaborate with various partners to expand opportunities for consumers to recycle or compost our products.
