As of 31 December 2016, Crown reduced energy consumption by 1.3%, while production increased by more than 4.2%.

Crown president and CEO Timothy Donahue said: “Even as demand for metal packaging has continued to increase and we have grown our global footprint to best support our regional and international customers, we have reduced our overall energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

"Our success stems from a rigorous, structured strategy that focuses on continuous improvement."
