Trivium Packaging’s 2023 sustainability report highlights commitment to environmental stewardship and carbon reduction efforts


Trivium Packaging, the $3.3B global leader in infinitely recyclable metal packaging, today releases its annual Sustainability Report, outlining the company’s work in 2023 towards positioning sustainability and eco-consciousness across its business operations.

By transparently documenting its sustainability efforts, Trivium demonstrates the importance and impact of corporate responsibility within sustainability. Furthermore, Trivium’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond internal operations. Through partnerships and stakeholder engagement, Trivium actively promotes eco-friendly practices across industries and the regions the company operates within globally.

“Sustainability is a fundamental pillar of our global operations and corporate ethos,” says Michael Mapes, CEO of Trivium Packaging. “By embedding eco-conscious practices across our organization, from sourcing to stakeholder engagement, we aim to lead by example in our industry and contribute to a healthier planet. Our comprehensive efforts reflect our commitment to advancing corporate responsibility and achieving a sustainable future for all.”

Highlights from Trivium’s report:

– Carbon Emission Reduction: Trivium’s carbon reduction objectives have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), aligning with a trajectory aimed at limiting global warming to 1.5°C. The company is on track to reach its targets, registering a 21% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions last year against an annual target of 4.2%. In 2023, Trivium also implemented operational excellence programs aimed at reducing emissions across its plants. In recognition of these efforts, Trivium was included on the CDP ‘A List’. These initiatives focus on enhancing energy efficiency, optimizing processes, and upgrading equipment to minimize energy consumption and emissions, including their pledge to be 100% powered by renewable electricity by 2030.

– Sustainable Sourcing: Creating sustainable products begins at the source. In 2023, Trivium updated their Supplier Code of Conduct to strengthen their requirements for environmental management, energy consumption, water use, biodiversity, DEIB and cybersecurity. Trivium also confirmed that 100% of their tinplate manufacturers, traders and component suppliers are covered by a Conflict Minerals Reporting Template or conflict-free material statement. This success is reflected in Trivium’s recognition this year by CDP as a Supplier Engagement Leader.

– Engaging Stakeholders: Trivium’s employees, clients, and suppliers are the driving force behind the company’s ongoing success. Last year, Trivium launched 2 new employee resource groups, Wellbeing@Trivium and Women@Trivium, which are aimed at creating a community where colleagues can exchange useful content, ideas, and inspiration. In 2023, Trivium’s plants spanning multiple continents launched 68 community engagement initiatives, including 19 local clean-up projects.

– Awards and Accolades: In 2023, Trivium won 17 awards spanning the globe and various industries, including recognition for their work in collaboration with Anheuser-Busch InBev for their Budweiser World Cup aluminum bottles. Trivium was also awarded Platinum status by EcoVadis for the third year in a row, becoming the first metal packaging company to receive this recognition three consecutive times and reflecting Trivium’s ongoing dedication to corporate environmental responsibility.
