Tetra Pak believes that environmental conservation is the collective responsibility for all members of society, including businesses, communities and individuals. Every year, Tetra Pak actively engages with the communities it operates in through local programmes and initiatives to raise environmental awareness, individual action and a greater sense of ownership toward environmental conservation. Listed below are some of the local Singapore events in 2019.
