In a world where the climate is rapidly changing because humans keep emitting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, it is crucial to reconsider the way we live. Energy, transport and materials can all cause less harm to the environment.

Particularly the use of fossil raw materials needs to be reduced. Fossil carbon has been locked under ground for millions of years and hence is not part of the natural carbon cycle. By extracting this and re-introducing it to the atmosphere, we rapidly increase the concentration of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

Elopak’s “net zero” focus means not only continuously reducing the negative externalities (footprint) from our products and production, but also increasing the positive externalities (handprint) by supporting projects with several sustainable benefits for our planet and people.

Our Only Future

Elopak is committed to keeping the global temperature increase below 1,5 degrees through the “Our Only Future” campaign by UN Global Compact.

Our progress

We do this by setting strict targets for emission reduction from our own production as well as our products. The targets are scientifically calculated and approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.

In the past 10 years, Elopak has reduced emissions by 70%. We are sourcing 100% renewable electricity and are members of the RE100 campaign (external link). We also have initiatives to reduce our waste and optimizing our production and transport. Although there is always potential to improve and reduce, emissions cannot be completely eliminated. That’s why Elopak is compensating for our remaining emissions through carbon neutrality.
