Smurfit Kappa Reduced CO2 Emissions By 7% In 2020

Smurfit Kappa has announced it has reduced its CO2 emissions by 7% in 2020 compared to the previous year.

The packaging company's 2020 Sustainable Development Report highlights the company’s long-standing objective to be an impactful business that drives change and nurtures a greener planet through the three key pillars of Planet, People, and Impactful Business.

Furthermore, Smurfit Kappa’s end-to-end approach to sustainability is evident in its innovative products and processes that support customers and positively impact the entire value chain.

“During the pandemic, the importance of sustainability has become even clearer. Climate change, has become, in the eyes of many, a climate crisis, and diversity, inclusion and equality are urgent issues for a global society, said Tony Smurfit, Group CEO.

Continued Progress

Compared with 2019, the group also made continued progress during 2020 on a number of its other key sustainability targets such as decreasing its waste to landfill by 18%.

"Circular economy and sustainable forestry management are at the heart of our business principles, and directly addresses legitimate concerns of our customers and indeed of the broader public. With a focus on sustainability, and by collaborating with our value chain partners, we can create greater social, economic and environmental value,” Smurfit added.
