MONTREAL, June 2 /PRNewswire/ - Alcan Global Pharmaceutical Packaging, part of Rio Tinto Alcan's packaging unit, announced that, for the second consecutive year, it will participate in an initiative sponsored by the United Nations for the Environment Program (UNEP) in the context of World Environment Day.
