Tetra Pak Sustainability

Leading the sustainability transformation

With a world-leading position in food processing and packaging, backed by more than 70 years of trusted experience, we aim to lead the sustainability transformation within the industry, recognising the interconnectedness of five focus areas: Food systems (which is related to protecting food), Climate, Circularity and Nature (which connect to protecting the planet) and finally Social Sustainability (which links to protecting people).

Food systems lie at the heart of this model. Given our business model and position in the value chain, we believe that we have a role to play in helping to feed a growing global population while minimising food loss and waste, reducing climate impact, protecting biodiversity and promoting circularity – while respecting human rights across our own operations and the value chain.

By constantly innovating to develop our solutions – both in food and beverage packaging and processing – we can further support food availability, safety, and reduce food loss and waste without compromising the health of our planet.

Our sustainability agenda

Food. People. Planet.

Contributing to the global agenda

Our approach to sustainability has always been driven by our purpose. We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have a long-term commitment to the UN Global Compact and its ten principles.

Food accessibility

Food accessibility through automation and digitalisation

In recent decades, automation and digitalisation have become increasingly essential elements of our offering that enable our customers to ensure quality, reduce costs, and enable scalability and repeatability – all while contributing to global food accessibility.

Access to healthy and affordable food is a basic human need, which would be impossible to provide today without automation and digitalisation. At Tetra Pak, we complement our industry-leading processing and packaging with automation and digitalisation solutions that enable our customers to provide access to safe food for hundreds of millions of people around the world.

Towards a healthy and sustainable world

Sustainability has been at the heart of our business since its foundation. We were founded on the idea that a package should save more than it costs, and today our ambition is to lead the sustainability transformation to impact industries and communities positively.
