Our annual Sustainability Report provides a comprehensive picture of how we are collaborating across the globe to contribute to the sustainable development of our industry. The report summarises our sustainability performance for the financial year 2022 and provides an update on our ambitions, actions, targets, and ongoing work to measure our progress.
A message from Adolfo Orive, President & CEO
With the ambition to lead the sustainability transformation in our industry, we are focusing on five areas where we can contribute the most: food systems, circularity, climate, nature and social sustainability. Read about some of the actions delivered and progress made in 2022.
Circular solutions: In line with the circular economy definition of Ellen Mac Arthur Foundation. “The circular economy is a systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution”.

Decarbonising our value chain: Our decarbonisation efforts focus on avoiding and mitigating GHG emissions correlated to our products and company, and carbon compensation to balance unavoidable residual emissions through nature-based solutions and other initiatives. Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions combined were reduced by 27% compared to our 2019 baseline. Tetra Pak operations = Scopes 1, 2 and business travel, our value chain = Scopes 1, 2 and 3.
Sustainable food systems: Sustainable food systems mean growing, producing, processing, packaging, distributing and consuming food without negatively impacting the planet. Source: OECD iLibrary.
Help to protect nature: Our ambition is to act for nature through responsible sourcing practices and strategic partnerships to conserve and restore biodiversity, mitigate and adapt to climate change, and contribute to global water resilience.
Positive social impact: By positive impact we mean driving better outcomes for our workforce, workers and communities in our supply chain, workers in collection and recycling and people in our value chain in the areas of labour, discrimination, hazardous working conditions and sustainable income, among others.
