Greif Speaks at a Regional Together for Sustainability Meeting

Date: 2018-11-27

Recently, Greif was invited to speak regarding a supplier’s perspective at a North American regional Together for Sustainability (TfS) meeting hosted by Clariant Corporation in Charlotte, NC.  Geoff Westphal, EH&S Manager for Greif, spoke about Greif’s commitment to collaborating with our customers to measure and achieve important sustainable supply chain goals.  

“It was an excellent opportunity to speak to our customers about Greif’s sustainability journey – both the achievements of the past and the commitment to the future. That commitment to the future is key for us to demonstrate Greif working with our customers to help improve environmental performance and meet sustainability targets,” explained Westphal.  “Clariant was a gracious host and we were appreciative of the opportunity! We look forward to future opportunities to share our story.”

Kevin Gray, Sourcing Manager for Clariant, shared “It was valuable to the North American TfS committee to see the perspective of a supplier such as Greif.  Knowing that we are all on a similar journey with similar sustainability goals, it was interesting to see how one of our suppliers has created a culture that engages and involves its employees.”
