Since Coveris has introduced its No Waste sustainability vision, the packaging company has significantly improved its sustainability performance. With No Waste, the company is fulfilling its quest to avoid waste in all its forms – in production, packaging and packaged goods - and has most recently also launched ReCover, a stand-alone entity bundling all efforts in waste sourcing, processing, and recycling to close the loop for circular plastic recycling.
“Renewable energy is a major pillar of our committed sustainability strategy. In the past couple of years, we have already gradually switched to green energy, most recently in our plants in Austria, Hungary, and Egypt. This new virtual power purchase agreement is instrumental in helping Coveris achieve zero Scope 2 Co2 emissions and an improved overall Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) status”, comments Christian Kolarik, Coveris CEO, on the agreement.
