Coveris Pirtó switches to 100% renewable energy
publié le jeudi 31 mars 2022
In line with Coveris’ No Waste vision and sustainability efforts, Coveris Pirtó, the Group’s CEE hub in Hungary, has switched to 100% renewable energy.
For the last 35 years the Pirtó site has remained an active player on the European flexible packaging market for food and industrial goods, with 2,500 tons of film produced annually. Now, from the beginning of 2022, the Hungarian plant is using 100% energy from renewable resources, including biomass and solar energy. “Switching to green energy leads to decreased CO2 emission into the atmosphere. As a result of this sustainability action, the emissions are reduced by approximately 700,000 kg CO2, which allowed Coveris Pirtó to eliminate our Scope 2 emissions to zero,” explained Gabriella Papp, managing director of Coveris Pirtó.
