Tetra Pak targets 100% renewable power

Tetra Pak has joined global business initiative RE100 — a group created to drive demand for, and delivery of, renewable power.

In joining the group, Tetra Pak has committed to increasing its use of renewable electricity to 100% across all global operations by 2030.

Charles Brand, executive vice president, product management and commercial operations at Tetra Pak, said, “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% from the 2010 baseline, despite a 16% increase in production.”

Mark Kenber, CEO of RE100 co-founder The Climate Group, said, “The demand push from corporates is as important as supportive government policy. Bold action by businesses, cities and governments sends a strong market signal and means we can hold global warming below two degrees far more quickly.”
