coincide with World Environment Day celebrations.

core value for Alcan Packaging, and we hope this will inspire all our
employees to organise activities that will positively contribute to our
communities and the environment," said Jean-Christophe Deslarzes, president
and chief executive officer, Downstream Aluminium Businesses and Alcan
    All sites have been supplied with Alcan Packaging's newly developed
catalogue offering various activity ideas to promote sustainability in their
local areas, such as a design contest, planting trees, landscaping of
