Sealed Air Named to CDP Climate Disclosure Leadership and Performance Leadership (A List) Status for Reporting, Results and Achievements in 2015

Monday, November 16, 2015

Charlotte, NC, 16 November, 2015 – Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) today announced that its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate risks of potential climate change have been recognised by CDP, the world’s only global environmental disclosure system.  According to this year’s CDP 2015 Climate Change Report, Sealed Air was named to the Climate Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) A List and also earned a position in CDP’s S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI), for the second consecutive year.

“We are pleased to be recognised by CDP for our focus on sustainability improvements.  Our sustainability strategy is centered on greenhouse gas reductions, 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 our customers.  Our investments in game-changing improvements within our operations, both technically and procedurally, have delivered new, sustainable products and solutions that address these global challenges,” said Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer, Sealed Air.

This year, approximately 2,000 companies reported to the CDP Climate questionnaire. Company disclosures to CDP are scored on a scale of 0 - 100 for completeness and data quality.  This year, Sealed Air scored 100 for Disclosure and achieved an A rating on the Climate List, one of only 113 companies accounting for the top 5% of those reporting. High scores indicate that companies provided robust climate data and conveyed a strong understanding of corporate climate-related issues. 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, current and future emissions regulations, as well as current and future physical risks and opportunities associated with climate change.
