Climate
Action

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing reliance on renewable energy sources and supporting efforts to increase already high metal packaging recycling rates are all areas in which the metal packaging industry is active in the fight against climate change.

SDG
Exceeding the goal in 2020 and achieving 33% of total electricity consumption from renewable sources. They plan to reach 100% by 2050. All UK facilities are already running solely on renewable electricity.
Renewable Power
100 %
by 2050.
By the end of 2020, their metal packaging plants had
5 %
reduction in energy consumption per billion standard production units - by end of 2020 in its metal packaging manufacturing plants - surpassing their original goal.
100 %
renewable energy in all 23 EMEA beverage can plants.
SDG
Over 1800 solar panels installed on the roof of Deventer plant, the Netherlands in early 2018, generating around 450MWh of energy and therefore reducing annual CO2 emissions by more than 300 tonnes.
SDG
New facility under construction in Herenveen, the Netherlands, will be heated entirely using geothermal energy.
SDG
100 %
renewable energy now used in all manufacturing locations across Spain and the UK.
SDG
Photovoltaic system installed on roof, capable of generating 751 kWp in energy.

In 2019 alone, 799,265kWh of electricity was produced.
Around 5300 solar panels to be installed on 15.000m2 roof of plant in Austria by the end of 2021. This will generate 1.800.000 kWh of energy and, based on 2020 energy consumption figures, will allow the plant to run on close to 100% green energy.
