Premier Packaging unboxes 2040 net zero carbon goal

Premier Packaging unboxes 2040 net zero carbon goal

Premier Packaging has announced its target to achieve net zero carbon across its operations by 2040.

The company has signed The Climate Pledge, a cross-sector community of organisations, businesses, individuals and partners targeting net zero carbon emissions 10 years ahead of the Paris climate agreement.

Signatories commit to three areas of action: measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions on a regulator basis; implementing decarbonisation strategies through innovations including efficiency improvements, renewable energy and materials reduction; and neutralising any remaining emissions with quantifiable, real and permanent offsets to achieve the net zero goal.

Premier Packaging already works with customers through its Design Lab to right-size packages, reducing materials in both packaging and void fill and increasing the amount of packages shipped per truck, which leads to lesser carbon emissions.

Owner John Gaynor said: “By signing The Climate Pledge, we are committing to aggressive action in decreasing our greenhouse gas emissions to reach net zero carbon.

“We are already working with a sustainable material, corrugated and utilising such energy-saving measures as electric forklifts and LED lighting. Tracking our GHG emissions will help us determine strategies to reduce and then eliminate them, making all of our operations climate-friendly.”
