DS Smith Group has reduced its greenhouse emissions by 3.8% year on year, according to its second annual sustainability review.
The results mark the halfway point in a ten-year process designed to deliver a 20% reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuels, water usage in DS Smith’s paper mills and quantity of waste sent to landfill.
The review provides a comprehensive description of the governance of sustainability issues affecting the packaging business, and how continued progress towards environmental targets has been achieved.
DS Smith’s group health, safety and environment director, Mark Greenwood, said: “Our success in reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the result of numerous initiatives in the last few years to upgrade our energy generation and energy efficiency capabilities.
“Installing an efficient power generation base required a significant investment and shows our determination to be an environmental leader in the packaging world.”
