We Depend on Thriving Communities
Ball is committed to making a positive impact to where our employees live and work. Through our business decisions and The Ball Foundation, we seek to support organizations, programs and civic initiatives that advance sustainable livelihoods based on innovative recycling, education, and community resilience programs that provide disaster preparedness and relief.
Supporting A Global Effort
Through The Ball Foundation, corporate giving, employee giving and volunteerism, we work to accelerate positive social changes that contribute to better lives and equitable society for our employees and customers.
For Ball, community engagement is how our company and our employees enrich the places where we live and work beyond providing jobs, benefits and paying local taxes. Take a look at how community impact funds have been distributed over the years.
- Enable 100% of employees to give and volunteer, and achieve a 35% participation rate globally.
- Extend sustainability and STEM education program globally and expand outreach to students, teachers and facilitators by 60%.
- Proactively leverage Ball products (inclusive of beverage packaging, aerospace technology, aerosol and cups) for good and donate at least $1 million of in-kind donations.
By enhancing our product stewardship and social impact, we create value for our shareholders, people and planet.
Broadening Strategic Partnerships Through Recycling
We partner with Kroenke Sports & Entertainment at Ball Arena in Denver, CO and SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, CA to grow the Green Assists Program, which teaches young people about the benefits of recycling. To celebrate Global Recycling Day, members of the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver joined us at Ball Arena for a recycling activity, and to learn about the benefits of sustainable packaging options from fan-favorite Nuggets player, Jamal Murray.
In partnership with SoFi Stadium, we joined over 400 youth from Environmental Middle School in Los Angeles who participated in a Recycling Combine with LA Rams wide receiver Allen Robinson, learning about sustainable packaging and why recycling is important to the future of our planet.
Disaster Relief and Response
Ball and our employees are united in our commitment to supporting communities where we live and operate when it is needed most. To meet relief needs of local communities, Ball partners with GlobalGiving, a global disaster relief and response organization, the American Red Cross, and Can’d Aid. Together, Ball and our partner organizations support on-the-ground efforts through funding and resources when disaster strikes.
