Its press release claims that Envirotainer is the first company in the [ULD?] industry “to set such extensive science-based targets aimed at reducing emissions not just from its direct operations but also, crucially, from its entire supply chain.” In line with the Paris Agreement, Envirotainer is set on achieving net-zero by 2050, not just on its own activities, but also those of its suppliers and partners. It has now established goals and submitted them to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for review and validation to check that they make sense and meet global standards. They include a 2030 goal of a 42% reduction in direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) GHG emissions (compared to 2023 results). This should be achieved by implementing energy-efficient measures at its production site plus own network stations, where it looks to carry out energy retrofits and upgrade its equipment. 100% renewable energy sourced directly from suppliers is used at its production plant. In addition, the company’s one-way container lease strategy already helps to improve efficiency, as this avoids having to return containers empty.

Envirotainer will be working together with its network of 60 outsourced stations to achieve its Scope 3 (supply chain) target of a 52% reduction per value added from purchased goods and upstream transport, and a 19.3% reduction per ton-kilometer air freight from downstream transport by 2030.

David Simonsson, CEO of Envirotainer, stated: “Sustainability is woven into everything we do. We understand that real change comes from taking full responsibility for our environmental impact, which is why we’re the first amongst our competitors to commit to such a substantial reduction in Scope 3 emissions, the most significant and challenging area. Aligning with our pharmaceutical customers’ priorities, we’re sparking change across our industry, and we eagerly await the target validation from SBTi. Our sustainability journey is an ongoing and deeply collaborative process. Setting ambitious targets is just the start. We’re constantly refining how we measure our impact to ensure our approach is as effective as possible. More than just leading by example, we’re actively working with our partners across the industry to share knowledge, drive change and collectively move towards a sustainable future.”
