Tetra Pak, a company specializing in the manufacturing of packaging machines and packaging for beverages, has chosen to switch largely to renewable electricity! A good example for all of us! Have a look to this short article from Food & Drink Business Europe!
Tetra Pak, the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company, has announced that it now uses renewable electricity for more than a third of its total annual consumption worldwide. This is up from 22% in 2015.
Key to this achievement was the purchase earlier this year of International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-RECs) for all its production facilities in China.
Charles Brand, Executive Vice President, Product Management and Commercial Operations at Tetra Pak, says: “We joined the RE100 last year as a part of our commitment to tackle climate change, pledging to use 100% renewable electricity across all our operations by 2030. This move in China, where we have the largest production footprint, is a solid step forward as we stride towards that goal.”
Tetra Pak has four converting plants, one product development centre and one processing equipment factory in China. Since the beginning of this year, the company has procured I-REC certificates equivalent to the total electricity consumption of all these facilities, as well as its regional head office of Greater China in Shanghai.
Tetra Pak’s I-REC certificates are procured through the South Pole Group, one of the world’s leading sustainability solutions providers.
