Greif, a global leader in industrial packaging products and services, will launch a significant update to its proprietary interactive carbon emissions reduction calculator at interpack in Germany.
The tool is designed to help customers achieve their sustainability goals by understanding the carbon footprint of their packaging.
A version of the company’s Green Tool, which evaluates the environmental impact of industrial packaging solutions produced by Greif using independent lifecycle data, Green Tool Lite will provide customers with carbon footprint metrics for its most popular IBCs, plastic and steel drum products, quickly and efficiently through an easy to use interface.
Green Tool Lite gives customers easy access to environmental impact data by allowing them to analyse and compare specific industrial packaging products by entering key information into a calculator. Results are provided through a simple chart that shows the CO2 emissions created through the manufacture and transportation of one or more product types, such as a new IBC versus a reconditioned one. Also provided is the CO2 emissions equivalence, for example the number of trees that would need to be planted to sequester the same amount of emissions.
“We are excited by the opportunity Green Tool Lite provides in supporting and enabling more customers in their sustainability journey, and we are delighted to be able to showcase it at interpack,” said Aysu Katun, VP of Sustainability at Greif.
“It will allow us to assist more customers in making informed decisions about their industrial packaging to help reach their sustainability targets. It also supports our own commitment to advancing a circular economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Each of us has a responsibility to protect the environment and reduce our environmental impact and the opportunity for positive change is greatest through collaboration.”
Touch screens with motion sensors will be available at Greif’s exhibition stand at interpack in Hall 10, B07.B17 for visitors interested in trying out the new sustainability software, which will be available to all customers at www.greif.com in the coming months.
