Sustainability-Indicators

Energy [kWh]

  • On average it takes 500 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity to produce 200kg of paper, the average amount of paper that each of us consumes each year.

Water [L]

  • the amount of water going into making the bottle could be up to six or seven times what’s inside the bottle.

Land / Ressources [m3]

  • Containers and packaging make up a major portion of municipal solid waste (MSW), amounting to 82.2 million tons of generation in 2018 (28.1 percent of total generation).

Climate [CO2eq]

  • The materials most used in packaging are plastic, paper or cardboard. According to a study carried out by the CIEL (Center for International Environmental Law), in order to manufacture a kilogram of plastic, 3.5kg of CO2 are emitted into the atmosphere, which only adds to the problem posed by its slow degradation.

Social &
Economical

  • Although this cost ranges from 1.4 percent to 40 percent, the average cost of packaging is $1 for every $11 spent.
