Plastic packaging products manufacturer Berry Global has published its 2023 Sustainability Report, highlighting significant progress in its Impact 2025 strategy.  

During the year, the company extended its goal of achieving net-zero emissions across its operations and value chain by 2050.  

The company claims that 86% of its fast-moving consumer goods packaging is now reusable, recyclable, or compostable.  

Berry Global also made strides in incorporating circular plastics into its products, reaching 10% usage through strategic investments and partnerships. 

It has successfully reduced its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 26% compared to 2019, surpassing its target of a 25% reduction by 2025.  

The company attributed the accomplishment to its increased reliance on renewable energy, marking a five-year consecutive rise.

In addition, Berry Global reduced Scope 3 GHG emissions, achieving a 21% reduction against 2019 figures, as it works towards a 25% reduction by 2025.  

In 2023, Berry Global also enhanced its renewable electricity usage by 65%, notably transitioning all its Mexican operations to wind and solar power.  

The company is also collaborating with the Science Based Targets initiative to establish new Scope 1 and 2 emissions targets, which will be disclosed in due course. 

The company has also focused on workforce development, increasing the average training hours per employee from 54 to 58. 

Berry Global CEO Kevin Kwilinski said: “Through a deep commitment to innovation, customer service, and a people-first culture, our company’s long-term vision is to be the leading source for sustainable packaging.  

“Whether across the products we design and develop, our operations, or how we engage with others, our results are deeply rooted in meeting customer needs by delivering on the many benefits of packaging in a way that accelerates the transition to a circular, net-zero economy.” 

In April 2024, the company introduced new lightweight closures specifically designed for the protein powder market.
