Trivium Packaging Accelerates Long-Term Climate Change Commitment
Trivium Packaging, a global leader in infinitely recyclable and reusable metal packaging, affirms its long-term commitment to combat global climate change and make real impact. To achieve the most ambitious aim of the Paris Climate Agreement, and limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, Trivium has pledged to set science-based targets to help reach that ambition in the short- and long-term.
With sustainability as an integral part of its business, Trivium is reportedly taking science-backed steps to achieve its sustainability goals by joining the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and signing an official commitment to set science-based emissions reduction targets along its value chain, in line with 1.5 degrees Celsius emissions scenarios and the criteria and recommendations of the Science Based Targets initiative.
“At Trivium, we have the opportunity and responsibility to make a positive difference in the environmental crisis facing our world today,” said Michael Mapes, CEO, Trivium Packaging. “Trivium has an incredible track record of developing high-quality, innovative packaging made from infinitely recyclable material and implementing sustainability practices, valuable to both our customers and the planet. Together with ambitious goals, an actionable sustainability agenda, and dedication from our entire team, we will work across our supply chain to make a real difference.”
With strong momentum in sustainability improvements, Trivium recently launched a recycling program in Argentina, making the company the first in Latin America to use post-consumer recycled (PCR) aluminum and have been implementing best sustainable practices which resulted in an A-CDP rating in two key categories: Climate Change 2020 and Water Security 2020.
“Signing up to the Science Based Targets initiative reflects our commitment to go from ambition to impact,” said Jenny Wassenaar, VP sustainability, Trivium Packaging. “Our targets will minimize emissions throughout our value chain, reduce our energy, gas, and water consumption and manage our waste and VOC emissions. We will also develop eco-designed innovative products with increased recycled content, easier recyclability, and reduced packaging weight.”
