Greiner Packaging one of the most energy-efficient companies in Austria

At the end of November, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism presented awards to a total of 25 Austrian companies for their extraordinary commitment to energy efficiency. Greiner Packaging was also able to pick up an award at the klimaaktiv conference "Energy efficiency in industry and commerce".

During the event, section head Dr. Jürgen Schneider emphasized the role of domestic companies in the Austrian climate and energy strategy, the #mission2030. They would serve as showcase examples and demonstrate "that measures to improve energy efficiency make economic sense and at the same time make an important contribution to climate and environmental protection".

We at Greiner Packaging also see it as our duty to work as energy-efficiently as possible in all our plants worldwide. As part of the Greiner Sustainability Report, which was presented in June 2019, we have published our targets for reducing emissions. For example, we want to increase our specific energy efficiency by 20% by 2030 and increase the share of renewable energies in electricity purchases to 90% by 2030.
