Tetra Pak published its annual Sustainability Report, highlighting the company’s achievements and progress in the last year and detailing actions taken to help realize resilient and sustainable food systems. 

The sustainability challenges underscore the need for a radical new approach to the way we feed the world while minimizing the impact on the planet. From how we source, produce, and process our food, to its transportation, the materials we use to package it, and the critical role of collaborations in making it happen.

Tetra Pak’s 23rd Sustainability Report highlights the company’s achievements and ongoing initiatives – to protect food, people, and the planet. These include:

  • Reduced operational GHG emissions by 36%, with 80% of energy coming from renewable sources, doubling the solar energy capacity to 5.55MW.
  • Launched a pioneering land restoration initiative in Brazil, in collaboration with local NGO Apremavi in early 2022. The aim is to restore up to 7,000 hectares of land by 2030 for biodiversity recovery, carbon capture, and climate change mitigation.
  • Sold 17.6 billion plant-based packages and 10.8 billion plant-based caps in the past year, enabling the saving of 96 kilo tonnes of CO2, compared to fossil-based plastic.
  • Committed to halving food waste, water consumption, and carbon footprint of its best practice processing lines by 2030.

“At Tetra Pak, we’re committed to minimizing our impact and our U.S. and Canadian market continues to decrease the impact of our operations while supporting our customers’ sustainability ambitions,” said Seth Teply, President and CEO, Tetra Pak U.S. and Canada. “It is our unified focus on protecting food, people, and the planet that drives each of us, and makes Tetra Pak an industry leader for high-quality, innovative, and sustainable packaging, processing, and services solutions for the food and beverage industry.”

This year’s U.S. and Canada supplement to the global report highlights several of the market’s accomplishments. These include:

  • Participated in a pilot study that demonstrated how shelf-stable milk in schools could reduce miles driven for distribution and minimize food waste.
  • Educated consumers and the industry on aseptic technology.
  • Expanded our sustainable packaging portfolio to include cartons made with plant-based coatings produced in the United States.
  • Advanced carton recycling via the Carton Council of North America, including the launch of the first Community Education Awards to improve resident communications on recycling.
  • Grew programs that further support our people, including total well-being and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

In addition to the written supplement, a video speaking to Tetra Pak U.S. and Canada’s commitment to sustainability in the words of their employees can be viewed here.

Looking forward, Tetra Pak has bold aspirations to lead the sustainability transformation. In November of 2020, the company announced its ambition to create the world’s most sustainable food package, a goal the company contends cannot be reached without innovative collaboration, considerations toward a low-carbon circular economy, and a broad view of the entire supply chain.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
