Below are examples of how we work with our key stakeholder groups.
Our cutting-edge processing and packaging equipment keeps food from being spilled or spoilt in the early stages of production, while our packaging solutions prolong the life of food and help prevent it from perishing
We actively engage customers around responsible supply chains, for example through our sustainable forestry commitments
We support school feeding programmes and Dairy Hubs through our Food for Development initiative
Our DEEPER IN THE PYRAMID offering makes food more affordable and available to low-income households
We promote consumer engagement in recycling
Best practice partnerships promote transparency, including Sedex, CDP and EcoVadis
Our approach to responsible sourcing requires that all suppliers commit to our Business Code of Conduct, based on the UNGC principles around environment, labour, anti-corruption and human rights
We ask suppliers to disclose sustainability attributes through Sedex and conduct annual audits of key supplier operations and environmental performance
Our long-term ambition is that all our packaging material will be made from 100% renewable materials. Our sourcing of packaging materials includes stricter criteria for sustainable production, traceability and verification
We prioritise the occupational health and safety of every single employee
We encourage diverse, inclusive workplaces
We offer extensive learning and development opportunities
We creatively engage and recognise our talent
Our engagements with governmental, non-governmental, industry and multi-stakeholder initiatives are extensive and varied. We are formally committed to over 20 such partnerships.
Along with a select group of other leading, forward-looking companies, Tetra Pak is involved with the Rewiring the Economy Inquiry Group, which was formed by the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership to explore key questions relating to the role of business in delivering the 17 SDGs by 2030.
The project is aligned with SDG 17 to "strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development". Last year, the group published Rewiring the Economy: Ten tasks, ten years. The report concludes that leading companies have both the appetite and ability to set the stage for change and reap the commercial benefits of delivering the SDGs.
