​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Tetra Pak joins the European Alliance for a Green Recovery

The COVID-19 outbreak has not only disrupted daily life, but also made a significant economic impact across Europe, compelling governments to rebuild and rethink the economic recovery.
 
Tetra Pak has joined the European Alliance for a Green Recovery, launched by the European Parliament on April 14, with a view to build a better future post the COVID-19 pandemic. The alliance gathers stakeholders to support a green recovery plan that puts the fight against climate change, the protection of biodiversity, and resilient food supply chains at the centre of Europe’s economic policy for the next seven years (2021 – 2027).
 
Together with 270 other signatories, including political decision-makers, business leaders, financial institutions, trade unions, non-governmental organisations and political think tanks, Tetra Pak will gain insights from other relevant stakeholders and contribute to the quick recovery of economies and societies.
 
“We have always believed in the philosophy of green development – driving economic growth while minimising the impact on the planet. Our commitment towards climate change, resource protection, food safety and accessibility remains unchanged, which is why we are excited to join the European Alliance for a Green Recovery, and to work with our partners for a more sustainable European economy,” said Tetra Pak President & CEO Adolfo Orive. “This is also well aligned with our Strategy 2030 ambitions - to lead the sustainability transformation of our industry, while making food safe and available, everywhere.”
 
In the coming weeks, virtual meetings will be organised in order to share knowledge and innovative solutions. The meetings are a platform to discuss regulatory measures needed to achieve the eventual goal of the ongoing European Green Deal: a climate neutral European economy by 2050.​
