Petainer commits to environmental transparency through CDP disclosure
This year, for the first time, UK PET packaging solution provider Petainer has furthered its commitment to environmental transparency by reporting its environmental impact through CDP, an international non-profit organisation that helps companies and cities disclose their environmental impact.
The company did so by completing CDP’s Carbon Disclosure Project questionnaire, in which it shared the results of the first 3 years of its carbon emissions reduction program, with data reported from as far back as 2018.
Petainer reported a 40% gross reduction in total CO2 emissions in 2022 vs 2018 and a 25% reduction of total emissions in CO2 per kg of resin purchased, the company said. Petainer have additional projects in the pipeline which will help to continue in the quest to further reduce the overall carbon footprint of the company, said CEO Hugh Ross.
“Sustainability is at the core of what we do at Petainer. The products we produce reach the hands of millions of consumers every year. It is therefore important for us to support our customers in making each product in the most sustainable manner possible,” said Ross. “Ease of recycling when a product has been used is equally important.”
