Kraft Heinz announced recently that by 2025, the company will use 100% recyclable, reusable or degradable packaging material worldwide, and increase the use of recycled materials and set scientific and reasonable emission reduction targets.
As part of its commitment to reducing the use of natural resources and managing the environmental footprint, Kraft Heinz will set a time frame for increasing the sustainability of packaging and setting reasonable greenhouse gas reductions.
Specifically, Kraft Heinz supports the development of a circular economy and is committed to using recyclable, reusable and degradable packaging worldwide around 2025.
At present, the company has cooperated with the International Environmental Packaging Organization (EPI) in consulting, tracking and other packaging professional services. In the future, it will explore relevant solutions with packaging experts and related alliances from technology, recycling and infrastructure.
In addition, Kraft Heinz will reduce the total use of packaging materials while further improving the recycling efficiency of packaging materials.
“The modern industrial economy faces enormous challenges in packaging recycling, the use of used products and the disposal of disposable plastics,” said CEO Bernardo Hees. “Even if it can't be completely resolved, it will continue to benefit the present and the next generation. Eco-environment, we must actively look for better packaging solutions to improve recycling rates through practical actions."
