Smurfit Kappa delivers over 40% reduction in CO2 emissions

Sustainable Development Report reveals 43.9% reduction since 2005.

Smurfit Kappa remains on target to deliver on its long-term goal to have at least net zero emissions by 2050, according to its 16th annual Sustainable Development Report, which was issued today.

The comprehensive report, which covers January to December 2022, highlights the company’s progress through continued capital investment, ongoing operational improvement and collaboration with customers and other key stakeholders.

Last year, Smurfit Kappa delivered several landmark achievements highlighting its continued leadership in sustainability including:
*A world first in successfully trialling hydrogen in its Saillat paper mill in France
*Completion of a multi-fuel boiler in the Zülpich paper mill in Germany which reduced emissions at the mill by 25%
*The announcement of the Group’s largest decarbonisation project in Cali, Colombia involving an investment of almost €100 million
*Commencement of a district heating project in Austria to benefit 20,000 homes across 3 communities.

Commenting on the release of the report, Tony Smurfit, Group CEO, said: “I am pleased that we have continued to deliver on our sustainability strategy not just because of what we achieved in 2022 but because of our planning and actions which extend beyond the short term. Smurfit Kappa’s purpose to create, protect and care continues to drive the changes needed to nurture a greener and bluer planet.
