In 2023, we made significant progress in strengthening the company, improving the structural economics of our business and fulfilling our Corporate Citizenship commitments. Our annual Corporate Citizenship Report, themed “Building Today for a Better Tomorrow,” highlights these achievements.

In 2023, we reported a 38 cumulative percent reduction in global manufacturing-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, exceeding our target of reducing Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions from manufacturing by 30 percent. Additionally, 18 percent of our manufacturing sites’ global electricity has been shifted to renewable energy, progressing toward our goal of 30 percent by 2030.

Our product packaging goals focus on improving the sustainability of our packaging materials. We aim to eliminate the use of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) in all packaging by 2025. In 2023, we reported that 96 percent of our plastic packaging by weight was EPS-free and 91 percent PVC-free. In our Supply Chain operations, we maintained world-class safety standards with a 0.52 Global Recordable Incident Rate.

We made strides to evolve our company culture with a focus on high performance, innovation and inclusion. We embrace diversity and inclusion and are building a culture where employees can bring their whole selves to work while being recognized and rewarded for performance. We are proud to be recognized by Fortune on its list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in 2023, by Forbes on its list of Best Employers for Women 2023 and by The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, scoring 100 on their 2023 Corporate Equality Index.

Our commitment to our communities is reflected in the work of the Newell Brands Charitable Foundation and our brands. In 2023, our Local Impact Grant Program (LIGP) awarded $195,000 to 27 nonprofit grant recipients across 14 locations, and we proudly donated $9 million in products to charitable partners around the world.
