Reporting

The 2019 report is our first sustainability report where we report on all three elements of sustainability – the people, the planet, and the profit. From 2020 onwards, we aim to use the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) framework for sustainability reporting.

For transparency and comparability, Elopak have published key environmental data in an environmental report since 2008. The data originates from an internal reporting system, collated from production, administration and sales units worldwide, and is third party verified annually according to the ISO standard, ISO 14064-3:2006. The environmental data shows the development of Elopak’s environmental impact each year since 2008.

For the environmental reporting, Elopak abide by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a widely used standard for corporate environmental reporting. Elopak reports according to the ‘operational control’ consolidation approach, which covers all Elopak’s fully owned plants worldwide. This means all plants where Elopak have operational control, hence excluding joint ventures. Check out more about the Greenhouse Gas protocol.

According to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a company shall divide its emissions into three scopes. This is illustrated in the figure below.

Elopak’s greenhouse gas data is reported in both CO₂ equivalents (CO₂e) and in the separate greenhouse gases.​
The table below describes the contents of our reporting scopes, their verification level and the split of emissions per scope.

Elopak reports annually in line with The Greenhouse Gas protocol, as well as to CDP, EcoVadis and Sedex. ​
