Improving resource efficiency in our operations is at the core of our manufacturing processes. It reduces our carbon and environmental footprint and brings cost benefit to us and the packaging supply chain.

The most notable among our operations awards is The Shingo Prize (generally acknowledged as the highest global recognition for operational excellence) which was awarded to our Aguas Claras plant in Brazil. With only a small number of organisations awarded The Shingo Prize each year, Rexam is part of an exclusive club. In 2013, we received further recognition from the Shingo Institute for our operational excellence in Brazil. The plants in Extrema and Manaus both received silver medals while Cuiabá was awarded bronze.
