Contact the Board
Berry Global has approved a process to enable communications with the members of the Board of Directors. Communications should be sent to:
Mail: Board of Directors
c/o Chief Legal Officer
Berry Global Group, Inc.
PO Box 959
Evansville, IN 47706
Berry Global's Chief Legal Officer, or such other person as appointed by him, will review each communication received in accordance with this process to determine whether the communication requires immediate action. The Chief Legal Officer, or his delegatee, will forward all appropriate communications received, or a summary of such communications, to the appropriate member(s) of the Board of Directors. However, Berry Global reserves the right to disregard any communication that the Chief Legal Officer, or his delegatee, determines is unduly hostile, threatening, or illegal, does not reasonably relate to us or our business, or is similarly inappropriate. The Chief Legal Officer, or his delegatee, has the authority to disregard any inappropriate communications or to take other appropriate actions with respect to any such inappropriate communications.
Global Code of Business Ethics
Effective August 23, 2021, the Board of Directors approved a new Global Code of Business Ethics (the “Code of Ethics”). The Code of Ethics was adopted to, among other things, (i) improve its focus on the Company’s core values and culture of ethics and integrity, (ii) reduce complexity and improve readability in order to make the Code of Ethics more accessible to a global and diverse employee base, (iii) provide additional clarity on acceptable and unacceptable behaviors and actions, including through the use of practical hypotheticals, (iv) communicate to third parties, including suppliers, customers and the communities where we live and work, our expectations and aspirations, and (v) make other technical, administrative, and non-substantive revisions to the Company’s existing Code of Business Ethics. The Code of Ethics applies to all directors, officers, and employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, establishing basic standards of business practice and behavior, as well as professional and personal conduct that are expected of all covered persons.
The adoption of the Code of Ethics did not relate to or result in any waiver, whether explicit or implicit, of any provision of the existing Code of Business Ethics, and it does not materially change the responsibilities and obligations that applied previously under the Code of Business Ethics.
