WestRock Commits To Emission Reductions

Norcross, Georgia based WestRock has confirmed its com- mitment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and will develop, validate, and publish a science-based target within 24 months. “Building on a proud legacy in sustainable forestry and fiber management, we believe in the promise of a sustain- able future, and we are committed to working with our cus- tomers, our supply chain and the communities where we work to get there together,” said David B. Sewell, Chief Executive Officer of WestRock. “That’s why we have prior- itized setting emissions reduction targets to help reduce this critical element impacting climate change.” This commitment builds on the progress WestRock has made as a sustainability leader within the packaging indus- try. As fiber-based packaging continues to grow in pop- ularity, WestRock has been taking active steps for – and with – its customers to work toward a more circular econ- omy. Pivotal to this progress is the company’s commitment to offering fiber-based alternatives to plastic packaging. WestRock’s progress is highlighted in its latest sustain- ability report prepared in accordance with Global Report- ing Initiative (GRI) Standards – the world’s leading sustain- ability reporting framework – and shows the company’s ongoing commitment to transparency and accountability.
