Diamond Packaging Announces Plan to Achieve Carbon Neutrality

(PRESS RELEASE) ROCHESTER, NY — Diamond Packaging has announced a multi-year commitment to purchase carbon offsets through Climate Action Reserve (CAR) to reduce its carbon footprint.

Diamond’s support of carbon offset projects will help foster reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution, support activities that reduce local air pollution, spur growth in new green technologies and allow emission reduction goals to be met at lower cost.

With the purchase, Diamond is taking a step on the path toward carbon neutrality by offsetting its Scope 1 emissions. Its Scope 2 emissions are already offset through its long-term commitment to wind energy.

Scope 1 emissions are “direct emissions” from sources that are controlled or owned by an organization (e.g., emissions associated with fuel combustion in boilers, furnaces and vehicles). Scope 2 emissions are “indirect” emissions associated with the purchase of electricity, steam, heat or cooling. They are two of three scopes in determining an organization’s total greenhouse gas inventory.

Diamond’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change is addressed with science-based targets when measuring its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. The company has established both absolute and intensity targets against a baseline, and these are being achieved through operational factors, including more efficient production, sophisticated HVAC controls and energy-saving methods.

As a result of this initiative, Diamond facilities are now carbon-neutral (covering Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions), with ongoing progress toward evaluating Scope 3 emissions, which include “indirect emissions” both upstream and downstream of the organization’s activities.

Today, Diamond’s packaging is designed utilizing recyclable or recycled paperboards (many FSC-certified), and manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy, in a zero-waste-to-landfill (ZWL) and carbon-neutral (Scope 1 and Scope 2) facility.
