“The demand for packaging on earth is never ending. This is one area of our lives where the right moves can make a massive difference for the benefit of our Customers, our Planet, and our People. Metal is 100% infinitely recyclable with no reduction in quality. It stores food safely for longer, greatly reducing waste. At Trivium packaging sustainability is in our DNA not only in our material selection but also in our actions. We’re honored to commit to the United Nations Global Compact and support the important work that the United Nations, its affiliates, and partners are doing to create a better, fairer world. All of us at Trivium have embraced social and environmental responsibility as a guiding and binding principle for the way we operate. Every day we pursue new ways to reduce our environmental footprint, support our local communities, and create innovative products and solutions that deliver long-term value for our stakeholders”.
