Elopak is now a CarbonNeutral® company and is also able to exclusively offer CarbonNeutral® packaging to its customers. With this, Elopak is fulfilling its vision of carbon neutrality, in line with its ambitious environmental strategy; Future Proofed Packaging.
“Since 2012 Elopak has envisioned becoming carbon neutral as a company and offering carbon neutral beverage cartons. Now, we have achieved this milestone, well-ahead of schedule. Elopak wishes to achieve absolute sustainability and be a company with zero net impact on the environment, and our carbon neutrality program brings us several steps closer to this vision”, says Niels Petter Wright, CEO of Elopak.
After having reduced its own greenhouse gas emissions by investing in energy efficiency and phasing in renewable electricity, Elopak is taking the next step by achieving carbon neutrality and supporting projects with verified carbon savings, which also have a positive impact on people’s lives and the environment.
Kristian Hall, Director Corporate Environment at Elopak, explains the concept of carbon neutrality: “Achieving carbon neutrality means that Elopak’s residual greenhouse gas emissions are offset by projects outside of our value chain, which have a very positive effect on local livelihoods and the environment.”
The carbon neutral certification is in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol and has been verified by an independent third-party, Anthesis Consulting Group.
Elopak is an international supplier of paper based packaging solutions for liquid food.
