Elopak is joining the RE100 campaign by committing to purchase 100% renewable power for all business units owned by more than 50% from 2016. This will cut Elopak’s greenhouse gas emissions by over 40% compared to 2014 emissions. Elopak is the first major packaging company and also the first Norwegian company to join the RE100 campaign.
From 2016 and onwards, Elopak plans to purchase 100% renewable electricity for all of its production facilities and offices worldwide, including business units owned by more than 50%. “Elopak aims to become carbon neutral in its operations, as outlined in our ambitious Future Proofed Packaging strategy, and by joining RE100, we take a major step in this direction. Elopak supplies packaging which is predominantly made out of renewable materials, and it is important for us that also the power supply comes from renewable sources,” says Elopak’s CEO, Niels Petter Wright.
