Tetra Pak To Use 100-Per-Cent Renewable Energy By 2030
Tetra Pak has committed to increasing its use of energy from renewable sources from a current 20 per cent to 100 per cent by 2030 in all its global operations.
As reported by RevistaInfoRetail.com, the company has joined the RE100 initiative, as it announced at last week's Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in San Francisco.
Charles Brand, vice-president of product management and commercial operations of Tetra Pak, said, “Signing up to RE100 reflects our ongoing commitment to minimising our climate impact and increasing our use of renewable resources.
“We have set an ambitious target to ensure carbon emissions across our value chain are capped at 2010 levels through to 2020, and we are making excellent progress. In 2015, emissions were down 15 per cent from the 2010 baseline, despite a 16-per-cent increase in production."
RE100 is a global initiative led by The Climate Group in association with CDP, to promote the demand and supply of renewable energy.
