                TECHNOLOGY & SUSTAINABILITY   Sidel sets carbon reduction targets for a more sustainable future Adhering to the Paris Agreement, Sidel has set out and committed to emissions reduction targets grounded in climate science through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Targets are 30% CO2 reduction across the company’s sites and facilities, and a 25% CO2 reduction in sourcing and usage of Sidel’s equipment by 2030. The compa- ny’s philosophy on Corporate Social Responsibility is now highlighted in its new Sustainability Report, and Sidel is also launching a new external com- munication campaign from Interbrand, named “you’re never alone”. Throughout the company’s history, Sidel engi- neers and designers have been challenging in- dustry with ecological innovations in packaging design, equipment and services, in order to con- sume fewer resources, and move towards a more circular economy. This experience has paved the way for Sidel to ignite greater sustainable change within the company and beyond. CEO & President at Sidel, Monica Gimre says, “Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to ignite conscious changes in both our industry and the wider market. Our commit- ments apply across all Sidel sites where we oper- ate globally, and also across what we deliver to our customers and what we purchase from our sup- pliers. We know that no single company or indi- vidual can bring about sustainable transformation alone; therefore, Sidel is standing ready with the tools our customers need on their sustainability journey. This is our message to customers: when it comes to consciously creating a cleaner and greener world, you are never alone.” (Source: Sidel)  Monica Gimre, CEO & President, Sidel AMEFT 3 2021 77      TECHNOLOGY & SUSTAINABILITY                         AMEFT 3 2021 77
