Improving resource efficiency has numerous benefits both for industry and society. It not only reduces our dependence on the world’s limited resources, but it also helps to reduce waste and ensure that we can achieve more with less. In the metal packaging industry, increased resource efficiency is achieved through a combination of innovative product development, inventive policy ideas and new technologies.

Use of heat generated during the can-manufacturing process to heat the entire building since 2019. The heat is also transformed into cool water, which is used to cool production machines and the administration building as needed.
Improvement in water pH levels and reduction in energy consumption thanks to installation of new cleaning system in its Izmit plant in 2018. An annual saving of around 75000 kwh per year is achieved and is recognised by Crown’s Chairman Sustainability Awards.

Optimisation of energy use across several Italian factories through the installation of LED lighting and movement sensors and improved pressurised air systems.
Reduction in weight of 33cl cans by
7 %
across the majority of production facilities.
This innovation has now been extended to 44cl and 50cl cans, with the potential to save 3.3 million hectolitres of water and cut CO2 emissions by 28,000 tonnes.
SDG
Securing CO2 savings of around
10 %
across European plants by optimising enegy use between 2015 and 2020. This included providing surplus energy generated in can production to heat the homes of around 1000 people in the local community of Odense. The plan is to take further actions that will lead to the reduction in CO2 emissions by a further 10% in 2021.
