Today, Tetra Pak published its 2017 Sustainability Report, highlighting the company's annual progress and key achievements in the areas of environmental performance, social responsibility and corporate governance. For the first time since it started publishing a sustainability report in 2004, the company has adopted Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, the most widely-used international framework for measuring and communicating sustainability performance.
Elisabeth Comere, director of environment & government affairs at Tetra Pak said: "Today, it's not only critical but expected for companies to be transparent about their sustainability practices and progress. Our annual sustainability agenda goes beyond that by pushing us to increase our efforts year-over-year beyond industry-wide requirements. Our aim is not only to promote sustainability practices that positively impact our company, our customers and society, but also to provide real metrics as we progress towards our lofty goals."
The Global Reporting Initiative is an international independent organization that helps businesses, governments and other organizations understand and communicate their impacts on sustainable development. At the heart of the framework is the materiality assessment. Organizations are encouraged to set targets around improving their performance relating to specific categories, aspects and indicators so that these can be measured and re-assessed regularly.
