The global pandemic has impacted lives and economies like never before, while at the same time it has also stressed the need to accelerate sustainable actions and find urgent solutions to the planetary challenges we are facing.
Tetra Pak’s 2021 Sustainability Report emphasises how the company has stepped up its investment and innovation efforts, joining forces across the board to address the need for greater consumption of food while reducing the impact on natural resources.
From exceeding its climate goals to being recognised as a leader by CDP for the fifth year running for environmental transparency and action, the report outlines the progress the company made on various aspects of sustainability throughout its business operations in 2020, shedding light on its future commitments and ambitions.
“The pandemic reminded us of the need for resilience in our food systems including providing access to food in the face of a global increase in hunger. Our packaging solutions proved critical to address these issues, as well as our processing and services capabilities,” noted president and CEO, Adolfo Orive.
“Throughout the ongoing crisis, we have been focusing on core priorities: protecting people, including our own employees and those of our customers and stakeholders; and protecting food, by helping manufacturers maintain continuous food supplies and further expanding access to safe, nutritious and tasty food. In 2020 alone, over 77 billion litres of products have been sold in Tetra Pak packages.”
