With over 15 years experience in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, Alicia Procello Maddox has managed the corporate social responsibilities of leading brands such as Nike and worked with state agencies such as the Southern California Public Health Association. Alicia Procello Maddox currently oversees corporate social responsibility at Avery Dennison, which is a signatory to the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Climate Savers Program, a collaboration of companies committed to environmental sustainability.

In December 2016, Avery Dennison signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the 2016 Green Power leadership Award recipient Apex Clean Energy. In the agreement, Apex would provide Avery Dennison with 20 MW of renewable energy annually from one of its wind energy farms in Texas, enough to power 50 percent of Avery’s US operations and to offset half of its greenhouse gas emissions.

The PPA highlights Avery Dennison’s commitment to tackling climate change and to establishing a company that generates value and is a force for good. It also marks a significant step for the company toward achieving its WWF Climate Savers Program target of 100 percent clean energy operations by 2025.
