Our 2020 climate goal is to cap greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the value chain at 2010 levels while continuing to grow our business.
Our biggest single climate impact results from energy consumption in our own operations and elsewhere in the value chain. Almost 90% of the GHG emissions in our value chain come from the production of the packaging raw materials that we purchase from our suppliers, and from the running of the processing and packaging equipment that we sell to our customers.
Breakdown of total value chain emission according to GHG Protocol’s scopes is presented in the table above. Emission reduction is calculated by comparing the absolute value chain emissions to previous year and to 2010 (which is the baseline year for our 2020 climate goal).
*Based on market-based Scope 2 accounting methodology.
**Includes following Scope 3 Categories: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 11, and 12.

The data in this section depicts total water withdrawal across the Tetra Pak sites. The amount of water we use is modest; nevertheless, we seek to minimize usage as far as possible. Our converting factories account for the largest percentage of water use, followed by those operations that assemble machines and equipment.
Tetra Pak goes well beyond legal requirements and applies international environmental standards to ensure that environmental issues and impacts are managed in a systematic way. Certification status at the end of 2019 at our manufacturing sites:
