Tetra Pak has appointed Gavin Landeg as its new Environment Manager for UK & Ireland. Gavin, a Chartered Environmentalist, joins Tetra Pak from Tata Steel, where he spent five and a half years, most recently as an Environmental Improvement Manager. During this time, Gavin was responsible for developing the organisation’s waste management and air quality schemes.
Gavin, commenting on his appointment, said:
“Tetra Pak is a business with strong environmental credentials and a really proactive approach. Increasing the number of used packages that are recycled is a particular goal for the business and its commitment to achieving this can be seen through its work with ACE UK and packaging producer Sonoco-Alcore, to establish the UK’s only carton recycling facility. I am excited to be working for a company which takes real action; action which I am looking forward to being a part of moving forwards.”
Gavin has over 12 years’ experience working in the environmental and waste industry. He began his career as an Environmental Business Advisor, helping SMEs, including those in the packaging and food and drink sectors, to improve their credentials in this area. Subsequently, he worked as an Environmental Consultant, advising a variety of organisations, from both the private and public sectors, on compliance, waste and CSR strategy.
In his new role, a key priority for Gavin will be to implement Tetra Pak’s environmental strategy and to provide governance and leadership in environmental excellence.
Rupert Maitland-Titterton, Cluster Leader, Communications, Northern Europe, said:
“At Tetra Pak, everything that is done is driven by a promise to protect what’s good. That promise is at the heart of all of the company’s sustainability commitments.
“From securing sustainable supplies of paperboard to proactively encouraging carton recycling, Tetra Pak UK & Ireland is committed to minimising its impact on the environment. We see Gavin playing an important part in helping us to improve our environmental performance right along the value chain.”
