WestRock is proud of its long heritage of sustainability, which is only growing in significance. We create fiber-based paper and packaging from a renewable resource, putting circularity at the core of our business. In fiscal year 2022, we worked diligently to continue progressing on our sustainability journey and toward our targets. Like the customers with whom we work, we’ve encountered our share of successes and obstacles. We remain committed and are pleased to share details of our achievements in this report. Our purpose is to Innovate Boldly and Package Sustainably. We have been honing how we embody that purpose, because we believe our greatest business opportunity lies at the intersection of innovation and sustainability. Our customers are working hard to make their businesses more sustainable; we encourage them to bring us their greatest challenges. We aim to meet them with bold, innovative solutions that help them win in the marketplace and progress toward their ambitious goals. Supporting people and communities by spending more than $1 billion with small and diverse-owned suppliers. Innovating for our customers by finding new ways to replace plastic with fiber-based materials, enhancing circularity and helping customers reduce packaging- related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Bettering the planet by making progress toward our Scope 1 and Scope 2 science-based targets (SBTs) with a 5.6% total reduction from a 2019 baseline. Enhancing our corporate governance by establishing the WestRock Sustainability Council of functional leaders from across the enterprise. We are part of a vast network of customers, suppliers, consumers, investors, policymakers and communities. Working together, we can learn from each other, amplify one another’s progress and accelerate our successes. WestRock brings a unique offering to the table because of our expertise in manufacturing fiber-based packaging solutions supported by robust capabilities in automation, design, materials science and beyond. As we advance our sustainability strategy and make progress on our targets, we’ll continue to demonstrate that our corporate and sustainability strategies are aligned. For example, just after fiscal year 2022 ended, we finalized the acquisition of Grupo Gondi, one of Mexico’s top paper and packaging companies. This acquisition affords us the opportunity to expand our presence in the desirable Latin American market while also bringing one of our longtime partners in sustainable packaging solutions under the WestRock banner.
