LAUSANNE, Switzerland, December 16, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Tetra Pak today added its name to the Paris Pledge for Action at COP21, reinforcing the company’s long-standing commitment to take the initiative in helping to tackle climate change.

Dennis Jönsson, CEO, Tetra Pak, said: “Seeing so many business organisations, like our own, sign this pledge is a tremendous step forward in helping to address this very real and increasingly critical issue. But, of course, signatures alone are not enough.  What matters now is that each company takes the actions they have pledged to take, and aligns their entire organisations behind the need to do things differently.”

Tetra Pak has long focused on finding ways to reduce its own environmental footprint, as well as those of its customers. From the sourcing of base materials, to the energy efficiency of its processing and packaging lines, the company is continually seeking ways to improve its performance and drive a sustainable business.

In 2011, the company set a goal to cap carbon emissions.  Data validated for 2014 showed CO2e emissions across all parts of the Tetra Pak value chain down 16% from the 2010 baseline, despite a 14% increase in production over the same time period.
