Tetra Pak says the carton’s half full for renewable energy

The packaging firm now sources 50% of its electricity from clean generation

Tetra Pak has announced it now sources half of all the electricity it uses from renewable generation.

The packaging firm has hit the milestone just two years since joining the RE100 initiative, which helps businesses shift to clean power.

It says it is “firmly on course” to meet its commitment of going 100% renewable across its global operations by 2030, thanks to the purchase of International Renewable Energy Certificates and installation of solar power installations at its own facilities.

Nearly 17 of the firm’s major facilities already run exclusively on low or zero carbon electricity.

Mario Abreu, Vice President of Sustainability at Tetra Pak said: “Using renewable energy is an important part of our journey to reduce the carbon impact of our own operations and so help tackle climate change.

“Through the purchase of renewable energy certificates, we are investing in the development of infrastructure to increase the availability of renewable electricity. Meanwhile, we are also exploring opportunities to scale up our own onsite solar power installations.”
