Europe: Tetra Pak commits to 100% renewable electricity by 2030

Tetra Pak has joined RE100, committing to increase its use of renewable electricity from 20% today to 100% across all global operations by 2030.

“Signing up to RE100 reflects our on-going commitment to minimizing our climate impact and increasing our use of renewable resources,” said Charles Brand, executive VP, Product Management and Commercial Operations.

“We have set an ambitious target to ensure carbon emissions across our value chain are capped at 2010 levels through to 2020, and we are making excellent progress.”

“In 2015 emissions were down 15% from the 2010 baseline, despite a 16% increase in production.”

“By joining RE100 we will benefit from expert guidance and peer-to-peer learning on renewable electricity options in different markets.”

“The demand push from corporates is as important as supportive government policy – bold action by businesses, cities and governments sends a strong market signal and means we can hold global warming below two degrees far more quickly,” said Mark Kenber, CEO of The Climate Group.

RE100 is a global, collaborative business initiative led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP to drive demand for, and delivery of, renewable power.
