DENTON, Texas (June 5, 2019) — Today, Tetra Pak has published the company's 2019 Sustainability Report online, marking 21 years of sustainability reporting. In the report, Tetra Pak shares actions, investments and aspirations of its sustainability journey.
Over the past two decades, the company's approach to sustainability reporting has evolved significantly, from focusing on environmental commitments and actions in the first report in 1999, to evaluating every part of the business and its impact, including societal and supplier governance. From adopting a mix of self-assessment to aligning with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines and supporting the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the company has been able to ensure the biggest possible positive impact.
This year's report highlights many accomplishments and commitments, including:
"In my 20 years at Tetra Pak, sustainability has always been at the core of our promise to protect food, people and futures," said Mario Abreu, Vice President of Sustainability. "The process of annual reporting keeps us focused on our sustainability commitments both internally and externally, and we have learned a lot along the way – especially the importance of collaboration, constantly making small wins and complete transparency."
