Top Sustainable Supply Chains across the US Include Ball Corp., Ecolab, Sprint, and Nike

Containers and packaging amount to 77.9 million tons of municipal solid waste on an annual basis, and, with both B2B and B2C brands increasingly focusing on reducing the environmental footprint of their entire supply chain, the sustainable packaging industry is expected to reach $400 million by 2024. Companies like Aldi, Samsung and Nestle have set aggressive sustainable packaging goals, declaring “total packaging sustainability” by 2025.

The most sustainable companies differ from state to state. According to Shorr, the most sustainable in California is Cisco Systems. In Texas, the top slot goes to Texas Instruments, while in New Jersey, Campbell Soup Co. is the most sustainable. Rankings from other states include:

  • Colorado: Ball Corp.
  • Florida: Darden
  • Georgia: UPS
  • Kansas: Sprint
  • Minnesota: Ecolab
  • New York: Estee Lauder
  • Oregon: Nike
  • Utah: Bare Bones Living
  • Washington: Microsoft

Shorr Packaging sourced data from the most recent global and domestic rankings, available lists and mentions related to sustainable and green companies. The final list was compiled using Newsweek’s Top 500 Global Companies rankings, Barrons’ “100 Most Sustainable U.S. Companies” list, Corporate Knights’ “2019 Global 100” ranking, and Rubicon’s “Top Sustainable Small Businesses in Each State” list. Companies in each state were determined by their ranking in each list and/or their combined rankings if the state was featured in multiple lists, Shorr says.
