LAKE ZURICH, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ACCO Brands Corporation (NYSE: ACCO) today published its 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, which outlines the company's commitment to ESG and includes an update on its publicly committed sustainability and diversity goals.
"Every year we make good progress across a wide spectrum of ESG initiatives that are important to our stakeholders, and 2021 was no exception. We increased the percentage of female leaders in the company, reduced CO2 emissions from facilities, increased revenue from products certified to third-party environmental and social standards and recycled the vast majority of non-hazardous waste in our factories and warehouses, to name just a few," said Boris Elisman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, ACCO Brands.
