In 2016, we established goals to reduce energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by December 31, 2020. The goals of a 5% reduction in energy and a 10% reduction in GHGs per normalized production of metal packaging were baselined on our 2015 performance. We are proud to report that we fulfilled—and surpassed—those goals ahead of schedule. More details about each goal are outlined below.
Our data excludes the Transit Packaging Division (Signode), which we acquired in 2018, and our newest glass plant built in Vichisa, Mexico in 2017. Our Twentyby30 goals, which include Science-Based Targets, do incorporate the Transit Packaging Division and our complete glass packaging operations.
It is also worth noting that data from other areas of our Company, such as the Promotional Packaging and Superior Multi-Packaging Limited business units, is included in our overall energy and emissions data, although they do not contribute to our normalized production.
