Diamond Packaging Wins 2016 P&G External Business Partner Excellence in Sustainability Award

Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging has been selected as a 2016 P&G External Business Partner Excellence in Sustainability Award winner – the ONLY packaging supplier worldwide to receive this distinction.

Diamond was recognized for consistently demonstrating a commitment to sustainability at high levels, including transparency in reporting measures, improvements, and sustainability initiatives and ideas.

Diamond has earned an Excellence Award seven times in the last eight years. Less than 0.1% of P&G's global suppliers receive recognition for consistent high performance.

Diamond provides superior packaging solutions for multiple P&G product lines, including its Gillette® division (blades, razors), Old Spice® and Secret® Clinical Strength antiperspirants and deodorants, Crest® Whitestrips®, Oral-B power toothbrushes, Pantene® hair care products, and Olay® skin care products. Diamond has also been instrumental in the success of several P&G product launches, including its Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ global launch.

Speaking at the event honoring those recognized as Partner of the Year, David Taylor, P&G’s Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, asked P&G’s external business partners to continue to strive for the best collaborative relationship with P&G, saying: “We’re focused on getting back to balanced growth. Our supplier partners have a key role to play in our ability to deliver top-line, bottom-line and cash. The more integrated and connected P&G and our supplier partners are, the better able we are to be more innovative and productive in meeting consumers’ needs and, as a result, deliver balanced and sustainable growth and value creation for our shareholders.” He made several requests of those in attendance, including more business transparency with each other and helping P&G become faster in getting products to market.
