How Tetra Pak plans to reach net zero by 2030 If you’ve ever drank juice from a carton package, it may have been supplied by Tetra Pak, a multinational food processing and packaging company. One of its ambitions is to deliver “packages made entirely from renewable and/or recycled materials that are fully recyclable,” according to the company site. And it seems to be moving toward that goal. “If you take our standard package, you’ll see that around 71 percent of the raw materials come from a renewable source today,” said Luana Pinheiro, sustainability manager at Tetra Pak. “Our packages offer a lower carbon footprint when compared to other alternatives.” Now the company is working to further improve its sustainability efforts by committing to reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in its operations by 2030 and across its entire value chain by 2050. Shana Rappaport, vice president and executive director of VERGE at GreenBiz Group, interviewed Luana Pinheiro, sustainability manager at Tetra Pak, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Located on a 6,000-square-meter site surrounded by village housing and farmland, the Organic Farm processing plant disguises its industrial purpose with a series of fragmented structures arranged around a central courtyard. Most of the buildings are single-story with pitched roofs to complement the surrounding flat farm fields and small-scale architecture. The buildings are separated into four processing areas—Material Storage, the Mill, Oil Pressing Workshop, and Packing Area—each with access to smaller courtyards. Covered walkways link the different blocks. The inner courtyard is the Grain-Sunning Ground. Related: ARCHSTUDIO inserts a modern teahouse into an ancient Chinese structure A 60-centimeter-tall cement base protects the glued-timber-framed buildings from ground moisture. Translucent polycarbonate sheets clad the facades to let in copious amounts of natural light ; at night the buildings appear to glow like a lantern. “The space, structure, materials and the multiple layered exterior courtyards together creates a warm, natural, and continuous working atmosphere for this farm,” writes ARCHSTUDIO. + ARCHSTUDIO Via Dezeen Images via ARCHSTUDIO
