LONDON, UK – October 25th, 2022 – Leading packaging innovation consultancy, ThePackHub, has partnered with Emitwise, the carbon management experts, to enable its members to accurately measure, report and reduce carbon emissions across their packaging supply chains. 

ThePackHub reports that its members, including Coca-Cola, Kraft Heinz, Mars Wrigley and Kellogg’s, are committed to making supply chain decarbonisation happen.  

The Emitwise platform uses machine learning to process data at the scale needed for complex packaging operations. This provides companies with confidence in measuring emissions across their supply chains and guides effective reduction activities.

Paul Jenkins, Managing Director at ThePackHub, comments: “We are delighted to be partnering with Emitwise to help our 80 plus members reduce their carbon emissions.

“The organisation is leading the way when it comes to carbon management. “Their record of working with complex manufacturing chains for major organisations, to deliver outstanding emissions reductions, speaks for itself.”

Mauro Cozzi, Co-Founder and CEO at Emitwise, adds: “We understand the complexities that the packaging industry faces when looking to reduce emissions.

“Our partnership with ThePackHub means that we can help packaging firms to get a hold on their carbon management in a way that achieves risk management, while boosting revenue growth and brand reputation.

“In particular, we’ll be focusing on dealing with scope three emissions, these being the result of activities not owned or controlled by a reporting organisation, but that the organisation indirectly impacts in its value chain. Typically, such emissions account for up to 90 percent of a packaging company’s emissions. We can’t wait to get started contributing to a better future in packaging”.
