Eviosys sails past emissions target
European metal packaging producer Eviosys has announced it has exceeded its emissions target for production in 2021, reducing it by 5.6%, nearly double its 3% goal on its ambitious Net Zero roadmap.
Now, Eviosys’s new ESG report Preserve Together reveals that the company is accelerating its decarbonisation, with ambitious plans to reduce the carbon footprint of its cans and lids by 20% by 2027 (compared to 2020) on the way to Net Zero by 2050.
Eviosys also revealed that it is aiming to invest in state-of-the-art energy efficient technologies including new oxidisers and more efficient compressors and chillers. Further, by switching to renewable energy, Eviosys is making rapid progress to reducing its Scope 1& 2 emissions.
Eviosys’s 44 strategically located manufacturing plants across Europe and Africa keeps it close to its customers, helping to reduce transport-related carbon emissions. It also means that Eviosys invests in the same regions as its clients, supporting local employment and communities.
Evioysis CEO Tomás Lopez commented: “Metal packaging offers real superiority in infinite recyclability – it is one of the truly circular methods of packaging that can be endlessly recycled. We are proud of our swift progress against our ambitious decarbonisation targets. By reducing the carbon footprint of our products, we are creating a perfect, low carbon circular economy for packaging.”
Eviosys is also targeting areas of improvement in inclusivity, both for its business and its products. The ESG report also spotlights OrbitTM, a patented award-winning revolutionary closure which reduces the opening torque by up to 50% compared to a conventional closure, thus improving the accessibility of their products for those with mobility issues. A further advancement in inclusion is due to be announced in the coming weeks
