Biodiversity

A one litre Tetra Pak carton package is mostly made of paperboard (70%). When responsibly sourced, plant-based materials are renewable. They can be replenished over time and enable a move away from virgin fossil-based materials, with a lower carbon footprint and reduced environmental impact.

While Tetra Pak does not own or manage any forests or sugar cane plantation, we want to ensure that biodiversity, healthy ecosystems, high conservation values and responsible management practices exist across all land in our value chain. Therefore, we are committed to sustainable sourcing. This means sourcing raw materials responsibly, to minimise human and societal, as well as environmental risk, while also driving transparency and active communications across the value chain.

We do this by working together with our suppliers, NGOs, customers and other stakeholders to demonstrate traceability through independent certification and labelling. In addition, we are nurturing partnerships to protect biodiversity and we are leading by example in forest protection and restoration. In 2021, Tetra Pak has been identified by CDP as one of only four ‘trailblazer’ companies taking ‘best practice’ action to combat deforestation.
