Europe: Tetra Pak joins COP21 pledge

Tetra Pak has added its name to the Paris Pledge for Action at COP21 to help tackle climate change.

“Seeing so many business organizations, like our own, sign this pledge is a tremendous step forward in helping to address this very real and increasingly critical issue,” says CEO Dennis Jönsson.

“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 organizations behind the need to do things differently.”

In 2011, the company set a goal to cap carbon emissions.

Data validated for 2014 showed carbon dioxide equivalent 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.
