Corporate Responsibility Highlights
We Have a lot to be Proud of When it Comes to Being a Responsible Company
But if you’re short on time, here are a few key highlights!
One of America’s Most Responsible Companies
Fortune Brands is recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies. We made the list in its inaugural year, 2020, and again in 2021.
Part of Value Creation
“We design and manufacture great products that save water, reduce energy consumption, and use recycled materials, and we keep asking ourselves ‘what’s next?’ Consumers’ interest in sustainability is only increasing, and we are planning for that future.
We will continue to leverage our vast consumer insights into innovative and sustainable solutions. How we do that – with care and attention on our people, considerations for how we impact the planet, and abiding by our strong governance practices – is all part of how we will create value for our stakeholders for the long-run.”
Nicholas Fink, CEO, Fortune Brands
