Envirotainer to cut down supply chain emissions

Envirotainer has unveiled a commitment to reduce its total carbon footprint.

The company has set extensive science-based targets aimed at reducing emissions not just from its direct operations but also, crucially, from its entire supply chain.

Envirotainer has outlined a clear path to lower its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions adhering to the goals of the Paris Agreement – aiming to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

David Simonsson, CEO of Envirotainer, said, “Sustainability is woven into everything we do.

“We understand that real change comes from taking full responsibility for our environmental impact, which is why we’re the first amongst our competitors to commit to such a substantial reduction in Scope 3 emissions, the most significant and challenging area.

“Aligning with our pharmaceutical customers’ priorities, we’re sparking change across our industry and we eagerly await the target validation from SBTi.”

By 2030 Envirotainer aims for a 42% reduction in its direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) GHG emissions, from a 2023 base year.

The company is reducing these emissions through energy-efficient measures at its production site and own network stations, such as undertaking energy retrofits and upgrading equipment.

Additionally, the company’s production is powered entirely by 100% renewable energy sourced directly from suppliers.
