Our goal to reduce emissions in our value chain by at least 50% by 2030, touches upon 7 out of 8 Sustainable Packaging criteria

Next to implementing measures to actively reduce our emissions in all stages of our value chain, LC Packaging is exploring alternative business models – such as expanding our FIBC reconditioning service (WorldBag) – with the aim to decouple our profits from the consumption of finite resources. To achieve a 50% reduction in our value chain by 2030, LC Packaging invests in long-term partnerships with our production partners, transportation partners and likeminded customers. 

LC Packaging’s science based emission reduction targets will cover our full operations and value chain, which includes the direct (Scope 1) and indirect emissions (Scope 2 and 3) of all our sales offices and warehouses, and our FIBC production facilities in Bangladesh and South Africa. We aim to achieve an absolute 50% emission reduction in our value chain by 2030, compared to base year 2021. An absolute emission reduction is a reduction in the total emissions, regardless of our growth ambition. To tackle climate change, the total emissions must go down, making this the only relevant measure.

“By setting Science Based Targets we can be sure our efforts are credible and ambitious enough to make the necessary contribution to mitigate climate change.”

before 2030, achieve net-zero emissions before 2050 and halt global temperature rise at 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Businesses that have not committed to reduce emissions in line with the 1.5°C pathway fall short in our joint fight against climate change and would fall below the SDG Ambition Benchmark.

These emission categories represent about 80% of the GHG emissions in the life cycle of our products.

Many of these categories are highly intertwined with the circularity of our packaging portfolio. By using renewable and recycled content materials for our packaging, and by ensuring our packaging is reusable, recyclable or compostable, we automatically reduce the GHG emissions related to our products.

In November 2021, LC Packaging became a signatory of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and made a public commitment to set science based targets (SBTs). We expect to submit our targets for validation no later than the second quarter of 2022. Our goal is to reduce our direct and indirect emissions from the full value chain (Scope 1, 2 and 3) by 50% by 2030. Designated highly emitting areas are, for example ‘raw material harvesting’ and the ‘production process’ of our packaging, ‘transportation’ – sea freight in particular – and the ‘end-of-life treatment of our sold products’.

50% emissions reduction from our value chain by 2030. 

Goal explanation

The most impactful threat for the well-being of this and future generations is climate change. The IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report stated ‘code red’ for humanity. It showcased the need for urgent climate action to maintain a habitable planet for humankind. To avoid the most significant effects of climate breakdown, the world must halve greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
