Crown Elevates Emissions Reduction Initiatives By Signing The Climate Pledge
As part of The Climate Pledge platform, participating organizations must commit to three principal areas of action to advance the goal of reaching net-zero carbon by 2040. Expected to measure internal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and issue reports on a regular basis, The Climate Pledge signatories will implement operational changes and technologies that prioritize GHG reduction and elimination strategies. Additionally, each member of the network must neutralize and offset remaining emissions to ensure that net-zero can be achieved.
"To decrease global GHG emissions at the rate needed to reach net-zero by 2040, it's crucial for the packaging sector to take aggressive action," said
Crown's premier, sustainable solution of metal packaging plays an increasingly important role in decarbonizing production cycles for packaging manufacturers. The recyclable material provides manufacturers with a responsible, energy-efficient asset for participation in a circular economy, as the chemical makeup of metal allows it to be recaptured and easily and infinitely repurposed without degrading the value of the material.
Investing in, producing and subsequently recapturing metal packaging not only extends the lifecycle of a manufacturer's product, but it also reduces dependency on sourcing raw materials and the energy required to do so. Producing metal packaging with recycled materials preserves 70% to 90% of the energy used for packaging made from raw materials, reducing manufacturing carbon emissions. From the production line to the shelves of consumers and back again, Crown provides a wide range of industries with a desperately needed, energy-saving packaging solution.
"Solving this challenge cannot be accomplished by one company; it requires all of us to act together, and it's one of the reasons we're so excited to announce that more than 200 businesses have joined us in signing The Climate Pledge—a commitment to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement 10 years early," said
Through the Twentyby30 program, Crown has set science-based climate targets to reduce carbon emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels in operations, emissions generated from the production of non-renewable electricity and emissions sourced from the value chain. The program's Climate Action pillar focuses on production efficiency, product and process innovation, strategic material procurement and utilization of renewable electricity.
