Sealed Air Among Top Companies on CDP’s 2014 S&P 500 Climate Change Report

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

ELMWOOD PARK, NJ – 23 September 2014 – Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) today announced that its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the risks of potential climate change have been recognised by the CDP, the world’s only global environmental disclosure system. According to this years’ CDP S&P 500 Climate Change Report 2014, which presents new analysis linking S&P 500 industry leaders with financial outperformance, Sealed Air, was one of 63 companies on the S&P 500 to achieve a position in CDP’s S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).

“It is an honour to be recognised for not only our efforts to reduce our own carbon footprint but also for the solutions we bring to market that help our customers to do the same and thrive in a sustainable economy,” said Jerome A. Peribere, President & CEO, Sealed Air.

An integral part of Sealed Air’s sustainability strategy is focused on greenhouse gas reduction and reducing operating costs and risk, and generating value through solutions that reduce waste, conserve energy and water and optimise the use of raw materials for its customers.

Company disclosures to CDP are scored on a scale of 100 for completeness and data quality. High scores indicate that companies provided robust climate data and conveyed a strong understanding of corporate climate-related issues. The companies in the top 10% for disclosure scores are awarded a position on the CDLI. CDP disclosure scores are provided to investors and other decision-makers through various channels, including Bloomberg terminals, to help them assess corporate preparedness for changing market demands and emissions regulations.

In addition to this years’ CDLI, Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division was recognised this year by the World Wildlife Fund for exceeding its Climate Savers commitment and lowering greenhouse gas emissions by 49% between 2003 and 2013.
