The circular economy offers solutions to global challenges such as resource scarcity, the impact of waste and climate change. The products and services of Euro Pool Group, and its divisions EPS and LPR, provide an immediate solution to these challenges. The concept of circularity has been at the heart of our business model for nearly 30 years. Our reusable packaging and pallets significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the fresh food value chain, have a long lifetime and are 100% recyclable. At EPG, circularity lies at the core of our business model, and our reusable and recyclable carriers make it possible to close the loop.
As part of our sustainability strategy, we have committed to reducing CO2 emissions by 20% by 2025 compared to 2017¹. Sustainability is more top of mind than ever, in legislation, in society and with our clients. We need to accelerate our sustainability efforts beyond our current commitments.
1 We calculate our carbon footprint in CO2 equivalent. This means that next to carbon dioxide (CO2), other greenhouse gases are also included. All emissions are expressed as CO2-equivalent emissions which include all major GHG-gases: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs), per fluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) expressed as Global Warming Potential in carbon dioxide equivalents. However, for the readability of this report we refer to this simply as ‘CO2 emissions’.
