By taking action to mitigate climate change, Atlantic Packaging is helping pave the way for the global packaging supply chain to follow suit. Since Atlantic Packaging’s Scope 1 and 2 emissions represent its customers’ Scope 3 emissions, reducing and eventually eliminating emissions will help the company’s customers reduce their own. As such, Atlantic’s science-based targets directly benefit customers in their own emissions reduction goals.
According to Atlantic Packaging Senior Manager Stewart Whitmire, “This approval is based on the most stringent and ambitious guidelines currently offered by SBTi and serves as an important milestone in our sustainability journey. We look forward to collaborating with our customers, suppliers, and employees to fulfill these commitments over the next 25 years and hope that our work inspires other companies in the industry and throughout the supply chain to make similar commitments.”
Atlantic Packaging’s goals also include a commitment that 55% of its suppliers will have science-based targets by 2027. The emissions of Atlantic’s suppliers fall under the company’s Scope 3 emissions and encouraging them to take climate actions directly benefits the company’s own reduction goals.
