Tupperware Brands Corporation released its 2022 ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) Report, highlighting its efforts to make ongoing progress towards its sustainability, environmental and gender equity goals.
Last year, Tupperware diverted 75% of its waste from disposal, reduced water withdrawal (per ton of product) by 18%, reduced absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 20% and resold, recycled or repurposed 95% of its returned products. In Portugal, the company’s factory become the first in Tupperware history to operate with 100% clean energy, and its plants in Brazil and Greece earned International Sustainability Carbon Certification.
On a personnel level, Tupperware instituted flexible, hybrid work schedules for employees, as well as a Fridays Unplugged initiative and mental health programs to encourage wellbeing. The brand also made strides toward gender equity through representation, pay equity and inclusiveness. Last year, women made up more than half (58%) of the Tupperware global workforce, almost two-thirds (68%) of all new hires and 45% of the board of directors.
“Sustainability and environmental and social responsibility have been core to how this brand has operated since the very beginning,” said Miguel Fernandez, Tupperware Brands President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to be true to who we are and who we have always been to fulfill our purpose of nurturing a better future for all. As ESG issues move into the mainstream both due to regulatory requirements and stakeholder expectations, our integrated ESG approach remains critical to guide our business strategy across all functions and markets.”
