EVANSVILLE, Indiana , September 14, 2022 (press release) –

Berry Global Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) is proud to announce its achievement of two certifications to aid in the monitoring and ultimately the reduction of its carbon footprint in China. Berry’s Suzhou, China, facility has received the ISO 14064-1:2018 certificate after third party service agency, Hangzhou WIT Assessment CO., Ltd verified the data’s integrity and accuracy. ISO 14064-1:2018 ensures specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals. This certification measures the exact tonnage of Berry’s scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions for its nonwoven products manufactured in Suzhou. 

The Suzhou site also received the SEP0552B Carbon Footprint Assessment Certificate, according to internationally recognized standards ISO 14067:2018 and PAS 2050:2011. Alignment with ISO 14067:2018 enables the specification of principles, requirements, and guidelines for the quantification and reporting of the carbon footprint of a product, in a manner consistent with International Standards on lifecycle assessment. The PAS 2050 aims to provide a consistent internationally applicable method for quantifying product carbon footprints. 

“Beyond addressing emissions in our operations and our supply chain, we remain focused on helping our customers meet their sustainability goals. Through increased transparency and reporting, we reinforce our alignment with our goal to reduce Scope 3 Emissions by 25% and provide solutions for our customers,” said David Parks, EVP & General Manager, Asia for Berry’s Health, Hygiene, and Specialties Division. 

These certifications will provide customers with a greater level of transparency around the carbon footprint of products purchased from the Suzhou site. The Suzhou site manufactures spunbond and spunmelt nonwovens for use in baby diapers, face masks, surgical gowns and drapes, and filtration media. Through its efforts to implement renewable energy and the specific measurements of these certifications, Berry Suzhou continues to make significant strides toward lowering its operational impacts on the environment while helping customers to achieve their goals for reduced scope three emissions. 

Earlier this year, Berry’s Suzhou manufacturing facility announced another initiative to help reduce its environmental footprint - its first full-scale, rooftop solar installation. A recent assessment of the Suzhou plant by the China Nonwovens & Industrial Textiles Association (CNITA) revealed that the plant’s performance in green production and the reduction of GHG emissions was in the top 5% of the Chinese nonwoven industry.
