Tetra Pak has committed to increasing its use of renewable electricity from 20% to 100% across all its worldwide operations by 2030.

The company has joined RE100, which is a global business initiative led by a non-profit organisation that promotes clean technologies and policies The Climate Group and CDP.

According to Tetra Pak Product Management and Commercial Operations executive vice-president Charles Brand, the company is committed to minimise its impact on the climate and environment as well as to enhance the use of renewable resources.

"In 2015, emissions were down 15% from the 2010 baseline, despite a 16% increase in production."

Charles Brand said: "We have set an ambitious target to ensure carbon emissions across our value chain are capped at 2010 levels through to 2020, and we are making excellent progress.

"In 2015, emissions were down 15% from the 2010 baseline, despite a 16% increase in production.

"Since setting our climate goal we have maximised our efforts to reduce energy consumption; committing to a renewable electricity target is a natural next step. By joining RE100 we will benefit from expert guidance and peer-to-peer learning on renewable electricity options in different markets."
