A tin and jar producer has reduced its carbon footprint by 10% since 2010.

The Ball Corporation published the results in its fifth sustainability report, in which it celebrates recent achievements and outlines green goals for the future.

It aims to reduce its total carbon footprint by 25% by the end of the decade.

It also hit its 2015 greenhouse gas emission reduction target and has decreased carbon intensity by more than 10% since 2010.

The company did this in part by installing three 1.5MW wind turbines at its factory in Findlay, Ohio, allowing it to generate its own renewable electricity.

John A. Hayes, Chairman, President and CEO, said: “Sustainability has always been a part of who we are and our team has worked hard to maintain a careful balance of our economic, environmental and social impacts over the years.

“As a larger, more global company, being sustainable is more important than ever and we must continue to set a high bar for ourselves and our partners.”
