At Eastern, we believe that integrity is an invaluable asset and integral to the Company’s future success. We set high ethical standards for the Company’s employees, officers and directors. In keeping with this belief and in recognition of its fiduciary responsibility to our shareholders, the Board is dedicated to attaining high ethical standards in corporate governance.
Corporate social responsibility is deeply ingrained in our work, and has been for over a century. Our businesses are committed to solving customers’ complex social responsibility challenges. Every day, the products that our businesses design and manufacture protect people who use them from injury, safeguard property against damage or loss, and increase the reuse and recyclability of packaging. Moreover, our businesses seek to minimize their environmental impact and embrace sustainable material recycling practices in our operations. We know that our first obligation is to the people who come to work at each of our businesses, and we are committed to our goal of zero reportable accidents. The Board’s Environment, Health and Safety Committee reviews our comprehensive program that ensures the health and safety of our employees.
