Publishing the 2021 report
Trivium Packaging, a leading provider of infinitely recyclable metal packaging solutions, today releases
its Sustainability Report 2021, highlighting the extensive sustainability activities implemented across its global operations. The company’s report reinforces its unwavering commitment to do its part in tackling climate change by integrating sustainability as a core element of all products and operations.
Trivium's environmental commitment
“We recognize that Trivium’s role matters in the global effort to take urgent action against climate
change, which is why we strive to make sure sustainability is not just a part of our business, but rather the heart of our business,” shares Michael Mapes, CEO of Trivium Packaging.
As an innovator in metal packaging, Trivium leads by example by delivering safe, high-quality, and
environmentally friendly packaging that protects and promotes its customers’ brands. But leadership
means doing more than just creating an effective, stand-out, and sustainable product – it also means
creating value for the various stakeholders in the value chain.
Introducing the Value Creation Model
One of Trivium’s greatest achievements in 2021 was to further embed sustainability in every function – and at every level – of the organization by adopting its first-ever Value Creation Model (VCM). Trivium’s
Sustainability Report 2021 explains how the VCM represents an important step in outlining, quantifying,
and evaluating Trivium’s impact on stakeholders, and further provides updates on the progress of its
‘Circularity Champion’ sustainability strategy to date.
“At Trivium, we make over 100 million metal items every single day – which means we can drive real,
sustainable change,” shares Jenny Wassenaar, Chief Sustainability Officer at Trivium Packaging. “We’re
continuing to pioneer change through sustainable growth and environmentally improved operations,
making a real difference for our customers, our people, and the planet.”

• Growing the business sustainably: Conducting over 30 collaborative innovation sessions
globally to help customers make the shift to sustainable metal packaging, and optimizing
