Our Rubbermaid Commercial Products® (RCP) team recently launched their Love Sustainability Journey, a vision and roadmap that guides their commitment to sustainable operations and contributes to Newell’s Corporate Citizenship goals.
As a global leader in the design, manufacturing and delivery of cleaning, hygiene and waste management products, RCP products play an important role in resource protection and waste reduction. The Love Sustainability Journey details global, tangible commitments to operate sustainably and create transparent conversation around sustainability best practices.
The roadmap highlights five key topics: Products, Certification and Innovation, Packaging, Operations, and Culture and Education, and outlines how RCP and other businesses can make incremental gains by identifying quantifiable targets. Their strategies include innovative product and packaging design choices, streamlining operational efficiency, investing in renewable energy sources, educating stakeholders and more. RCP is also supporting Newell’s sustainability goals, including reducing landfill waste by 90 percent and sourcing 100 percent of paper-based packaging from certified, verified or recycled sources by 2025.
“Newell’s Values are Truth, Transparency, Teamwork and Trust, all of which we intend to provide through our journey,” shared Mike McDermott, Commercial Business Unit CEO. “Investing in sustainable solutions is not only the right thing to do, it is imperative to the long-term value and viability of our resources, our people, our communities and our business.”
