Ball Added To Dow Jones Sustainability Index, Recognized For Leadership In Sustainability

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2013/2014 Dow Jones Sustainability Index, released this week, lists Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL) as the most sustainable company in the containers and packaging industry. Ball, included in the DJSI World and the DJSI North America, is the only packaging company listed in both indices. The assessment is based on an extensive annual review of economic, environmental and social criteria. S&P Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM, an investment specialist focused exclusively on sustainable investing, announced the results.

"Ball's listing in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index is an acknowledgement of the company's continued progress on our sustainability journey," said John Hayes, chairman, president and CEO. "Our employees make all the difference. Their talent and engagement make Ball a more successful and more sustainable company."

Ball earned industry-leading scores in all three dimensions: economic, environmental and social. The company scored particularly well on criteria integral to its Drive for 10 and sustainability strategies, such as codes of conduct (integrity), customer relationship management, product stewardship (innovation and recycling) and human capital development. Ball's ongoing improvements in corporate sustainability management and reporting, advancement in operational excellence and efficiency, talent management and its sustainable sourcing program all contributed to this achievement.

Several rating and ranking agencies have recognized Ball's sustainability performance over the years. In addition to its Dow Jones Sustainability Index listing, Ball has been listed in the international FTSE4Good index since 2009 and achieved excellent results in the Carbon Disclosure Project since 2006.
