Sealed Air Named Green Giving Corporation By Matthew: 25 Ministries

Thursday, August 6, 2015

Charlotte, NC – Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE), has been named a Green Giving Corporation by Matthew 25: Ministries. Matthew 25: Ministries, a top-ranked international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organisation headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, has named Sealed Air as a “Green Giving Corporation” representing the pinnacle of responsible corporate environmental stewardship through the Green Giving programme. Sealed Air and other corporations work throughout the year with Matthew 25: Ministries to rescue, recycle, reuse and repurpose millions of pounds of excess products, saving these products from the landfill, protecting our environment and helping millions of people throughout the US and worldwide each year.

Commercial and industrial waste is a significant portion of solid waste. American industrial facilities generate and dispose of approximately 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste each year, according to the EPA. Reducing, reusing, recycling and repurposing excess products can have an enormous impact on our environment. Through partnership with companies like Sealed Air, Matthew 25: Ministries rescues and reuses approximately 15,000,000 pounds of these corporate excess products each year.

Corporate donations are evaluated, categorised and processed at Matthew 25: Ministries’ 170,000 square foot facility in Cincinnati, OH. The products are then redistributed to partner organisations in the Greater Cincinnati community, throughout the US and around the world. Responsibly recycled products from generous corporate donors like Sealed Air impacted the lives of more than 20,000,000 people in 2014.

Matthew 25: Ministries has developed the Green Giving Guidelines as a way of acknowledging these product donors for their exceptional level of corporate and environmental responsibility. Corporate donors like Sealed Air that meet the standards of the Green Giving Guidelines have demonstrated an extraordinary level of environmental stewardship. Corporate donors receive a display certificate and the opportunity to display the Green Giving Seal. The Green Giving Guidelines include the following standards:

  • Donate product multiple times per year to Matthew 25: Ministries.
  • Donate a significant amount of product based on company size, location and/or capacity.
  • Demonstrate an overall commitment towards minimising corporate waste.
  • Demonstrate outstanding corporate citizenship by repurposing corporate excess for humanitarian work.

The Green Giving Guidelines are designed to encourage corporate environmental responsibility, values and attitudes; acknowledge participating corporations’ willingness to act responsibly and applaud the enormous impact their actions have on the environment and on people in need.
