GUILFORD, CT – May 26, 2022 – Brook + Whittle is thrilled to announce our partnership with UK-based carbon management experts, Emitwise. This collaboration will help us identify, track, and report our greenhouse gas emissions throughout our operations and supply chain, which will enable us to halve our emissions by 2030 and drop to net zero by 2050.
At Brook + Whittle, we’re passionate about building a better future for our customers and the planet. As a leading provider of sustainable packaging solutions in North America, our approach has focused mainly on developing circular processes to improve package recyclability and the conservation of resources. It’s time we focused on doing more to reduce the ecological impact of what we produce.
We have recently set ambitious targets to reduce our overall footprint, a catalyst for change both internally and externally, for our suppliers and customers. These goals include reducing our carbon emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Needless to say, this is a huge undertaking.
This is where Emitwise will play a vital role – providing their carbon management expertise to guide us in tracking, reporting, and uncovering carbon hotspots across our fifteen production sites. Pairing 100 years of carbon accounting experience with machine learning technology, Emitwise speeds up the burdensome aspects of carbon accounting across Scopes 1, 2 and 3 while significantly increasing the accuracy of the carbon data we need to make business decisions.
“Emitwise is a recognized leader in carbon management, and I’m excited to form this partnership,” says Tyler Matusevich, Director of Sustainability at Brook + Whittle. “We can’t improve what we can’t measure – Emitwise’s carbon management platform will quantify our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, enabling us to identify hotspots and align with The Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). They will help put us on a path to transparency for future regulation and reporting. This is the next step in our journey and will engrain sustainability in our day-to-day actions.”
“Being able to support proactive companies like Brook + Whittle establish and achieve their carbon reduction agenda is exactly why we created Emitwise,” shared Mauro Cozzi, CEO, and Co-Founder of Emitwise. “The commitment to half emissions across their operation and supply chain by 2030, in line with the SBTi, is an example of the forward-thinking behavior companies across the packaging and manufacturing industry need to adopt. We are pleased to be on this journey with them, empowering Tyler and the team with accurate, timely, and transparent Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon data to drive decision-making across the business.”
