Packaging firm Crown Holdings has had its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

The company’s goals have been certified as consistent with reductions required to keep global warming to 1.5°C and the firm is one of only eight companies in the global containers and packaging sector to achieve this distinction.

It has committed to halving its absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2030 from a 2019 baseline, as well as cutting its absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by 16% by this time.

Timothy J. Donahue, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crown, said: “As a Company, we are taking serious, deliberate steps to accelerate our sustainability commitments.

“Receiving approval on our emission reduction objectives from the Science Based Targets initiative serves as a major proof point that we are on the right track. We are proud to secure this distinction, which is only held by seven other companies in the global containers and packaging sector, and be part of an elite group of organizations fighting against climate change.”
