The commitment of Graphic Packaging International to sustainability and to supporting the circular economy is the focus of a new documentary. The short film, which was released on 17th June on reuters.com, reflects upon the packaging provider’s participation in an initiative called Vision 2045.
An inspirational project conceived to celebrate the centenary of the United Nations, Vision 2045 entails fifty carefully selected global businesses joining forces to leverage cutting-edge thinking and the latest technology to create world-changing outcomes. Amongst its key objectives, the project aims to demonstrate how both organizations and individuals can take collective action to ensure a better future for society and the planet.
The initiative has been aligned to 2045 – when the UN celebrates its 100thanniversary – because it is hoped that by this year the UN Global Compact and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will have become woven into the fabric of everyday life for everyone across the planet.
The new film features a number of key personnel from Graphic Packaging including Mike Doss, President and CEO, Elizabeth Hargrave, VP Global Quality, Michelle Fitzpatrick, VP & Chief Sustainability Officer, and Ricardo De Genova, Senior VP, Global Innovation & New Business Development.
Commenting on the new documentary, Doss said, “The Vision 2045 documentary offers a window into Graphic Packaging and into some of the environmental and societal considerations that motivate and inspire us. We are proud to be a part of this globally focused project, commissioned in support of the UN and its Sustainable Development Goals. The aims and objectives of the initiative closely mirror those of our own Vision 2025, which includes several ambitious goals that we are committed to achieving.”
