Managing and improving our environmental performance

We are committed to operating sustainably in every aspect of our business, from the sourcing of raw materials to how we operate and innovate.

Across Avery Berkel, we continually measure, manage and work to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations and products. We also partner with key suppliers to ensure that, together, we have a positive impact on our environment and use our resources responsibly.

We utilise our sustainability framework to develop and execute a fit-for-purpose environmental management methodology appropriate for our business. We are directly responsible for implementing the most impactful environmental performance improvement opportunities for our unique operation.

Reducing our environmental impact

In accordance with our environmental management system, Avery Berkel's commitment to continuous improvement is demonstrated through development of innovative solutions and manufacturing processes that reduce energy consumption and improve of operational efficiency at our facilities.

These are just some examples of our contributing initiatives:

  • Facilities-wide switch to LED lighting – 257kWh saved each year compared to our previous lighting systems
  • Technician vehicle journey management – 241,032 fewer miles travelled since our 2017 baseline, saving over 60 tonnes of CO₂
  • Transition to fully recyclable and recycled product packaging – over 4 tonnes of non-recyclable packaging removed from qualifying products since 2017

Our People

We recognise and reward colleagues who perform well and have a strong history of promoting our internal talent.


We invest in our colleagues through professional development, challenging on-the-job experiences and long-term career growth opportunities.

Our approach to diversity and inclusion is intentional, fully integrated into our enterprise talent strategy and touches every part of our business.

We ensure our organisation has the tools and resources necessary to build a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace. As part of a global organisation, we embrace and implement the framework provided by the ITW Diversity & Inclusion Council.
