BROOMFIELD, Colo.- Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL) and its ReAl™ extruded aluminum can were recognized by Henkel for best-in-class sustainability performance in 2015 at the 2016 American Cleaning Institute annual meeting. Awards were presented in five categories for excellence in supply performance, sustainability and innovation in the beauty care, laundry and home care markets. Ball is a key supplier for Henkel's personal care products.
Henkel's decision to present this award to Ball stemmed from close collaboration on the relaunch of the popular beauty product, Fa, in new sustainable packaging. One of Henkel's key goals is to achieve 'more with less.' The Ball team accomplished this mission with its ReAl™ contoured can, which is made with 25 percent recycled aluminum, is up to 15 percent lighter than traditional aluminum aerosol cans and boasts a 12 percent lower carbon footprint. These statistics make Fa's 150- and 200- milliliter aerosol cans the lightest on the market.
"At Ball, we know that sustainability is a key driver of long-term success," says Jim Peterson, chief operating officer, global metal food household products packaging. "We appreciate Henkel's recognition of our combined effort and look forward to continuing our productive relationship together, as we believe that ReAl™ is a game changer for the aerosol industry."
