The path to Net Zero Carbon

Lil are now taking orders for Zero Carbon Packaging

Our partnership with The Climate Pledge commits us to the goal of achieving Net Zero Carbon by 2030, 10 years before The Paris Agreement. This process relies upon efforts to reduce emissions across all 3 scopes by 95%.

An important first step for us has been reaching Zero Carbon, making Lil Packaging the first Zero Carbon packaging manufacturer and supplier.

Our journey to Net Zero carbon
- Scope 1 | Eradicate on-site combustion of gas & oil
- Scope 2 | Switching to renewable energy
- Scope 3 | Offsetting our supply chain

Meeting The Net-Zero Standard

The time for action is now. In the interest of following the SBTi's proposed guidelines for achieving Net-Zero, we are immediately implementing greener operational practices to cut emissions.

By 2030, we not only strive to achieve a 95% reduction (against our baseline 2020) across scopes 1 + 2 of internally generated carbon, but reduce our scope 3 proportionally by working with partners in our supply-chain and offsetting remaining emissions.

We joined The Climate Pledge on April 21, 2021.
