Higher recycling rates, lower CO2 emissions and commercialisation of the world’s first 100% bio-based carton mark a successful year on several fronts
Tetra Pak made further progress towards its 2020 environmental goals during 2014, passing several important milestones in its journey to develop sustainable products, reduce the environmental footprint of the value chain and increase recycling.
- The year saw the launch of the world’s first fully renewable carton package, the Tetra Rex® Bio-based.
- Tetra Pak secured Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) Chain of Custody certification for the last seven of its 92 facilities and legal entities worldwide.
- During 2014, the company delivered almost 44 billion FSC labelled packages to customers worldwide, 38 per cent higher than in 2013. Furthermore, Tetra Pak has produced more than 130 billion packages bearing the FSC logo since unveiling its first one in 2007.
