Carbon Footprint of the organisation
Eurpack has set itself the goal of reducing CO2 emissions during its production process and in synergy with its suppliers.
For this reason, we carried out the first analysis of CO2 emissions in 2019 and in accordance with ISO 14064-1: 2018.
LCA (ISO 14040) is the methodology applied to quantify, monitor, report and validate the impacted categories (land use, water use, toxicity, biodiversity).
Carbon Footprint of the products
In parallel, we are carrying out an analysis of the Carbon Footprint of the products in compliance with ISO 14067:2018 on some specific products of our customers.
The analysis aims to quantify current CO2 emissions with a view to reducing them by changing the dimensions of the carton and, in some cases, internal packaging components inside the carton (for example changing tray material from PET to carton).
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” (Mahatma Gandhi)
We at Eurpack would like to see more attention paid to the health of our planet. For this reason, by joining the initiatives proposed by Treedom, we have created our own forest composed of 702 cocoa trees located in different countries (Cameroon, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Kenya, Tanzania).
In this way, we contribute to the protection of natural resources, the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, and we support the local populations who directly look after our plantation.
We use energy from 100% renewable sources.
- 62% hydroelectric power
- 27% geothermal energy
- 10% wind power
- 1% solar energy
The development of renewable energies requires important measures to offset and mitigate carbon emissions. For this reason, we only use energy produced from renewable sources (according to current legislation through the Guarantee of Origin Certification referred to in EC Directive 2009/28).
Our commitment is a daily one, consisting of small gestures and meaningful interventions.
An important building block for our Green Packaging project.
FSC and PEFC CoC Certifications
FSC and PEFC promote ecologically sound, socially beneficial and economically sustainable management of the world’s forests. This makes it possible to ensure the responsible management of forests.
Achieving these standards ensures that the timber has not been harvested illegally, in violation of civil rights or in such a way as to threaten territories of high conservation value. Wood must not be harvested from forests undergoing conversion to plantation or non-forest use, or from forests with genetically modified trees.
The chain of custody ensures that the wood used in the production process comes from FSC or PEFC certified forests.
