Elopak joined WWF Climate Savers in March 2009, committing to reduce the group’s carbon emissions by 15% from 2008 levels by 2011.
Elopak’s key areas for action are:
• Reducing energy consumption through efficiency measures
• Reducing business travel
• Changing printing processes and installing Volatile Organic Compounds-captures
• Improving the efficiency of the transportation of goods
• Purchasing low impact energy.
Elopak has set targets for the continuous improvement of environmental performance in processing, transport and energy consumption. The company has also included environmental evaluations in its decision criteria for investment and R&D projects. They have also started a technical audit of production sites to find and document potential projects for the reduction of CO2 emissions.
“We have chosen WWF to be our partner and support us in taking the right measures in this journey to reducing emissions and increasing sustainability. The challenge will be very real at all our locations and involve all of our staff, and we will challenge everyone in the company to do their bit in achieving our CO2 reduction goal.”
