Our aim is to create cartons made solely from plant-based materials that are fully renewable, fully recyclable and carbon-neutral. It is all part of our journey to deliver the world’s most sustainable food package.
Adolfo Orive, President and CEO of Tetra Pak talks about our ambition to create the ultimate sustainable food package – that secures food safety and availability while reducing the impact on our planet
Today Tetra Pak® carton packages are collected and recycled across the world; where efficient waste management and recycling infrastructure is in place. In Europe, nearly half of all used beverage cartons are collected for recycling and transformed into a wide range of new products. But we aim for more.
At Tetra Pak®, our sustainability strategy is founded on our commitment to a low-carbon circular economy. In a circular economy, manufacturers design out waste and re-use and recycle materials. Circularity is an essential part of our approach to sustainability.
Packaging plays a critical role in the global food delivery system, helping keep food safe, nutritious and available for people around the world. But it can also cause problems for the planet. Watch this video to understand where the solution lies.
