Constantia CEO Pim Vervaat said: “We are pleased to announce this commitment and to join other organisations in leading the fight against climate change.

“Sustainability has always been a part of our DNA therefore we continue to invest in the development of more sustainable packaging solutions, with a focus on a circular economy.”

The company already has an approved science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target since 2018. It aims to cut GHG emissions across all three scopes by 24% by 2030.

Vervaat added: “In order to remain at the forefront of sustainability, it was time to update our target to reflect the need to limit global warming to 1.5°C and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

“We therefore have decided to increase the ambition of our target and have committed to setting a science-based net-zero target in all three scopes within the next two years.”

Earlier in August this year, an affiliate of US-based private equity company One Rock Capital Partners signed a definitive agreement with French investor Wendel to acquire Constantia.
