0

Berry Global has secured a notable achievement by being named to JUST Capital’s 2024 list of America’s Most JUST Companies. This distinction places Berry within the top half (22nd out of 51) of its “Industrial Goods” industry and positions it at 372nd overall among the Russell 1000’s largest US corporations.

Significant improvement from previous year

Berry’s performance this year marks a leap forward. Compared to 2023, the company climbed six spots within its industry and 223 spots in the overall ranking. This progress reflects advancements across four of JUST Capital’s five assessment categories: workers, communities, environment, and shareholders & governance.

Attributing this success to focused efforts, Jeff Bennett, Berry’s Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, highlighted the company’s commitment to fostering “a safe, ethical, inclusive, and rewarding work environment” while contributing positively to the communities they operate in.

Bennett further emphasised Berry’s dedication to sustainability, diversity, and responsible growth:

“This significant improvement in our ranking supports our vision of becoming our industry employer of choice and underscores our commitment to sustainability, diversity, continuous improvement, and responsible growth.”
