Multimedia from this Release

The Tetra Brik® Aseptic 1000 Edge with Bio-based LightCap™ 30 uses a bio-based plastic film and cap made from polymers derived from sugar cane. Combined with the paperboard, the share of materials from renewable sources in the package reaches over 80%, leading to a 17% lower carbon footprint than a standard package.

Tetra Pak's non-toxic dry lubricants allow processors to reduce lubricant use by 70%, reducing hazardous waste disposal.

The Tetra Pak® E3 filling machines use the revolutionary eBeam technology in the packaging material sterilization process, removing the need for hydrogen peroxide and reducing the energy consumption by 33%.

Today marks the United Nation’s World Environment Day, a day designed to encourage worldwide awareness and action for environmental protection. But this day is more than just a personal celebration of environmental action. It’s an opportunity to recognize that environmental excellence is not just corporate social responsibility, but a critical business driver to foster growth and create value.

Tetra Pak believes that, at their core, environmental problems are business problems. If companies no longer have access to natural resources needed for operations, or if those scarce resources become highly expensive, they have a business problem. Likewise, if environmentally conscious consumers stop buying certain products, or if companies are not prepared to meet current and future environmental regulations, they stand to lose profits. On the other hand, environmental excellence creates value for businesses in terms of revenue generation, cost reduction and brand equity, in addition to protecting our natural environment.

So, there’s no better day for Tetra Pak to reinforce our commitment to practices and product innovations aimed to further reduce the environmental impact of our operations and our products. We know such innovation will prepare us for a sustainable future, but it will also help you, our customers, reduce your environmental impact and meet your sustainability goals.
