ELMWOOD PARK, NJ, Oct. 25, 2012 (Business Wire) -Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE) advanced its position this year on Newsweek’s Green Rankings list to Number Two in its industry and Number 174 overall out of 500 U.S. based companies, according to the publication’s survey, which was released Monday. The annual ranking compares the environmental performance of America’s largest public companies.

“This recognition is a testament to our environmental commitment and management systems that are represented throughout all of our operations,” said Sealed Air’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, William V. Hickey. “As part of our Smartlife™ approach to sustainability, we constantly strive to bring continuous improvement in our own operations and to provide solutions to our customers that reduce waste and the use of valuable resources, provide operational efficiency, and reduce risk and improve overall safety.”

A panel of independent judges ranked companies in the survey based on performance in three major areas: environmental footprint, environmental management and sustainability disclosure. The survey is regarded as one of the most comprehensive analyses of environmental leadership, and Sealed Air was one of 500 large U.S. organizations evaluated. Sealed Air has been ranked on the Green Rankings list every year since Newsweek introduced the survey in 2009.
