Our approach to protecting Futures is grounded in our commitment to a low-carbon circular economy. To that end, we have worked for years to reduce the environmental impact and increase the renewability of our packages. Now we are accelerating our efforts as we pursue our vision of the ideal beverage carton: a fully renewable and recyclable package.
At the same time, we are contributing to a low-carbon society by striving to minimise impact across our entire value chain. We are protecting biodiversity, and establishing water stewardship, by working with our suppliers and through third-party verification. We are also working to optimise our own operations and, through our solutions and services, those of our customers. And finally, we are promoting recycling and circularity, through our own activities and through partnerships worldwide.
Our goal is to create and share value for and with our customers through our products and services.
Every purchase decision we make as a business has an impact. Responsible sourcing means going beyond the traditional factors of cost, quality and delivery time in our decision making.
We are working with suppliers and customers to minimise our environmental impact across the entire value chain, from sourcing to production, use to disposal.
Our business prevents food from being wasted and optimises the use of resources. In this way, the principles of circularity are at the very heart of our business. Our value chain approach and partnerships are helping normalise the circular economy.
We take a proactive and pioneering approach to make sure cartons are collected, sorted and recycled so that they keep delivering value. When a recycling value chain is working well, it also prevents littering, saves resources and reduces climate impact – all of which are vital to our shared sustainable future.
A pioneering initiative in Thailand is celebrating a decade of helping people in distress while championing carton collection and recycling.
In addition to the efficiency of our production processes, the quality of our buildings makes a significant difference to the sustainability of our operations.
Tetra Pak is the first carton packaging company to launch paper straws in Europe. We are also now working with a number of technology leaders to explore biodegradable options.
