* 20% reduction in value chain GHG emissions

* 1.3 million tons of carton packages were collected and sent for recycling – a 7% increase

* 40 million euros invested in recycling programs worldwide

* 100 million euros invested in packaging research and development

* Number of women in senior positions increased from 14% in 2020 to 23% in 2023

Tetra Pak’s 25th Sustainability Report highlighted a 20% reduction in value chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and 47% reduction in the company’s operational GHG emissions since 2019.

The latter puts Tetra Pak on track to meet its target of net zero GHG emissions in its own operations by 20305 and supports the company’s long-term ambition to work together with suppliers, customers and other stakeholders and achieve net-zero GHG emissions across the value chain by 2050.

The company’s Sustainability Report FY23 tracks the progress the company has made against its sustainability agenda. It focuses on five interdependent areas: food systems, circularity, climate, nature and social sustainability.

Another major milestone saw the launch of an aseptic beverage carton featuring a paper-based barrier, reducing its carbon footprint by a third (33%)7 and bringing the company a step closer to developing the world’s most sustainable food package. This world-first was a result of a €100 million investment in packaging research and development in 2023, with the same investment planned annually for the next five to ten years.

Within Tetra Pak’s ongoing initiatives to protect food, people and the planet, the company helped 64 million children in 49 countries to get access to milk and other nutritious beverages through School Feeding Programs.

Moreover, the amount of carton packages collected and sent for recycling across the world rose by 7% compared to 2022. Additionally, there was a 14% increase in the volume of polyAl9 sent for recycling.

For the eighth consecutive year, Tetra Pak was included in the CDP Forests ‘A List’. Additionally, the company received an ‘A-‘ rating in Water Security, despite it being the first year of reporting in this area.

The company has also been actively implementing the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The report also highlighted that the number of women in senior positions increased from 14% in 2020 to 23% in 2023.

Adolfo Orive, President & CEO at Tetra Pak, commented that “Collaboration across the food industry is ever more important to feed a growing population sustainably. Our global presence and end-to-end solutions give us opportunities every day to collaborate with stakeholders across the value chain, from farmers and food producers, to suppliers, policy makers, consumers and others. We understand the responsibility that comes with this role. We remain committed to playing our part to transform the world’s food systems, to ensure they are more secure, resilient and sustainable.”
