Sidel aims to reduce emissions for a more sustainable future

June 17/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Adhering to the Paris Agreement, Sidel has set out and committed to emissions reduction targets grounded in climate science through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), said the company.

Targets are 30% CO2 reduction across the company�s sites and facilities, and a 25% CO2 reduction in sourcing and usage of Sidel�s equipment by 2030. The company�s philosophy on Corporate Social Responsibility is now highlighted in its new Sustainability Report, and Sidel is also launching a new external communication campaign from Interbrand, named "you�re never alone".

Throughout the company�s history, Sidel engineers and designers have been challenging industry with ecological innovations in packaging design, equipment and services, in order to consume fewer resources, and move towards a more circular economy. This experience has paved the way for Sidel to ignite greater sustainable change within the company and beyond.

"Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to ignite conscious changes in both our industry and the wider market. Our commitments apply across all Sidel sites where we operate globally, and also across what we deliver to our customers and what we purchase from our suppliers,� says Monica Gimre, CEO & President at Sidel. �We know that no single company or individual can bring about sustainable transformation alone; therefore, Sidel is standing ready with the tools our customers need on their sustainability journey. This is our message to customers: when it comes to consciously creating a cleaner and greener world, you are never alone," declares Mrs. Gimre.

As MRC informed earlier, in a bid to expand its packaging solutions portfolio, blow molding machinery maker Sidel Group has acquired blow molder and packaging designer PET Engineering Srl. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed. Founded in 1999 and based in San Vendemiano, Italy, PET Engineering has 40 employees and a global customer base.

As per ScanPlast, Russia"s calculated consumption of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) grew to 263,660 tonnes in the first four months in 2021, up 13% compared to the same period in the previous year. 78.3% of the increase in consumption falls on the share of bottled PET chips due to the virtual absence of exports and an increase in the volume of imports.
