Berry Global Sets Scope 3 Goals for 2025
Surpassing its initial goal of an 8% reduction in Scope 3 GHG emissions four years ahead of schedule, Berry Global Group, Inc. commits to reducing its absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions 25% by 2025 (from the same 2019 baseline).
The new Scope 3 target is aligned with Berry’s existing Scope 1 and 2 commitments and validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The SBTi approval confirms Berry’s value chain goal is in line with current best practice and consistent with actions required to help limit warming to 1.5°C and prevent the most damaging effects of climate change.
“Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. And we are committed to advancing the transition to a net-zero economy,” said Robert Flores, Berry Global’s Vice President of Sustainability in a statement. “Quickly surpassing and increasing our Scope 3 emissions target is a testament to Berry Global’s hard work, dedication, and collaboration across the plastics value chain to significantly reduce emissions.”
Berry’s efforts to minimize the environmental impact of its operations, including more efficient use of energy and water as well as increased renewable energy, are critical to the success of the company’s Impact 2025 sustainability strategy. The company has also set sustainable packaging goals to achieve 100% reusable, recyclable, or compostable fast-moving consumer packaging by 2025 and 30% circular plastic use across its fast-moving consumer goods packaging by 2030. Circular plastics include recycled and renewable resins like bioplastics.
