Food packaging and processing company Tetra Pak has pledged to achieve net zero emissions across its value chain by 2050.

This ambition is complemented by the company’s commitment to net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across its own operations by 2030.

To achieve these goals, Tetra Pak will focus on four key areas including lowering emission related with energy and establishing partnership with suppliers and other stakeholders from value chain to significantly reduce carbon footprint.

The company will also focus on the development of low carbon circular packaging and equipment portfolio and sustainable recycling value chains.

Additionally, the company’s emissions reduction targets will be established in line with 1.5°C according to the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative.

Tetra Pak packaging solutions and commercial operations executive vice-president Lars Holmquist said: “In 2017, we were the first company in the food and beverage industry to have our climate impact reduction targets approved by the SBT initiative.
