An important part of this work is to increase consumer awareness. The global recycling of used Tetra Pak packages increased from 13 per cent in 2001 to 22.9 per cent in 2012. From 12 billion carton packages recycled in 2001, we went on to recycle 39 billion packages in 2012. We have set a goal of reaching 40 per cent global recycling by 2020. Climate: Tetra Pak has established a global cli- mate target for 2020 to reduce environmental impact throughout the value chain; from our suppliers, within our own organisation, our customers’ production and recycling of used packaging. We want to ensure that the reduction of our climate impact is equal to the extent of our growth, and remains at the same level in 2020 as it was in 2010. Since 2006, Tetra Pak has been part of the WWF’s Climate Savers initiative.
76 Environmental management: Our packag- ing material factories are certified according to the environmental management standard ISO 14001. Renewable raw materials: The principal raw material used in our packaging is paper, a product which is manufactured from wood – a natural and renewable resource. Using renew- able raw material that continues to grow is a good environmental choice. Our guidelines for forestry management guarantee full traceability of our materials, and our ultimate goal is for all the wood fibre in our carton packaging for food and beverages to come from certified forests and to live up to the highest standards of responsible forest management, FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council™). In 2012, Tetra Pak delivered over 26 billion packaging items with the FSC™ stamp. We are extending the use of renewable materi- als and have introduced polymers for our caps produced from a bio-based resource, sugar cane. Environmental performance: We strive con- tinuously to improve the environmental perfor- mance of our processing and packaging solu- tions. By making our solutions more efficient, impact on the environment will decrease and costs will also be reduced. This reinforces both our customers’ competitiveness and our own.
