CarbonNeutral® company

Elopak became carbon neutral in 2016 and has since compensated remaining emissions through carbon neutrality.

Elopak became carbon neutral in 2016 and has since compensated remaining emissions through carbon neutrality.

After years of reducing Elopak’s greenhouse gas emissions by way of energy efficiency and phasing in renewable energy, there are still residual emissions which cannot be reduced to zero. Examples include emissions from the transport of raw materials and finished goods, as well as emissions from business travel.

In order to get to zero, Elopak supports projects outside of the value chain, that can provide third-party verified carbon emission reduction credits. In doing so, we are contributing not only to reduced emissions but also facilitating positive effects on local livelihoods and the environment.
We will keep working to reduce our own emissions and ensure our cartons maintain a low carbon footprint. By compensating our residual emissions, we are positively contributing to climate change mitigation. Climate change is a global problem that is crossing borders. We aim to make a positive impact where we can.
The carbon neutral certification is in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol and PAS2060 and has been verified by an independent third-party, Anthesis Consulting Group.

Measure

In order for any organization to reduce its GHG emissions, it must first quantify them

Reduce

Identify and act on the potential for reducing Elopak’s GHG emissions

Offset

Support projects with verifiable emission reductions outside of our operations.

Elopak’s program for carbon neutrality works in the following manner. Firstly, we measure and quantify our emissions. Elopak has done this since 2008. Then we must continuously reduce our emissions and report them. Finally, we compensate our remaining emissions by supporting projects. In addition to being a carbon neutral company, Elopak also offers carbon neutral packaging.
