Ethical Corporation announced Tetra Pak as winner of the Sustainable Innovation title at the Sixth Annual Responsible Business Awards ceremony in London, UK recently.
The awards celebrate responsible business practice from around the world in 17 categories, recognizing organizations as well as individuals for their achievements.
Tetra Pak’s renewable package outshone competitors from various sectors, including services and fast moving consumer goods companies, in the Sustainable Innovation category.
This title adds to a string of accolades, as the company has already received international recognition for its Tetra Rex Bio-based cartons at several prestigious awards ceremonies since the first customer launch earlier this year.
Tetra Pak achieved a significant milestone towards reaching its corporate 2020 Environmental Goals with the launch of Tetra Rex Bio-based at the start of 2015.
The world’s first fully renewable liquid food carton package is produced from nothing but renewable, recyclable and traceable FSCTM certified packaging and bio-based plastic derived entirely from sugarcane.
The company will be building on this expertise to introduce more renewable packaging across the portfolio in the years ahead.
