“Effective climate protection is only possible together”

Date: 11.07.2022Source: SÜDPACK

SÜDPACK, the global film manufacturer has joined the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) – and signed the commitment letter. The joint initiative of the UN Global Compact, Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), World Resources Institute (WRI), Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) and others has set itself the goal of anchoring effective climate protection on a corporate level to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

SÜDPACK thus belongs to an international community of companies that share the same values and goals. But above all,  the company is committing itself to even greater involvement in climate protection along the entire value chain, to involvement that is based on current findings in climate science – and is ensuring that its climate protection efforts are consistent with the highest standards of the Paris Agreement.

Said Valeska Haux, VP of Strategic Marketing, SÜDPACK: “It is based on our NET ZERO vision here at SÜDPACK that we are working hard on the sustained improvement of our carbon footprint. We are convinced that it will only be possible to effectively meet the challenges of climate change if industry, institutions, politics and consumers develop an even greater sense of responsibility, join forces and work together on pioneering solutions.”

The SBTi commitment letter was signed in April 2022. Within the next 24 months, SÜDPACK will submit concrete goals to the SBTi and have them validated. Scope 1 and Scope 2 will be taken into account as defined in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol standards, as will Scope 3 emissions, which have the greatest effect on SÜDPACK’s total emissions. Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions that are directly emitted by the company. This includes the company’s vehicles, incineration plants and refrigerants. Scope 2 comprises indirect emissions, such as those from purchased energy, steam, cooling, heating or also from business travel, waste, leased assets and capital goods. Scope 3 takes a look at the indirect emissions from upstream and downstream activities, such as purchased materials and their transportation, distribution and logistics, waste and employee commuting.
