The Earth is the ultimate source of taste and we are strongly committed to safeguarding its precious gifts. We are dedicated to conserving the source of taste by looking after our territories, managing our resources sustainably and respecting our environment, with the goal of all our packaging being recyclable or reusable by 2025. That is why in our plants we pursue the efficient and sustainable management of water and other resources.
Conserving our Source and its Terroir
S.Pellegrino mineral water emerges from a unique source in the Italian Alps. We are committed to the sustainable management of the water, and our factory is certified by the Alliance for Water Stewardship. We pursue the highest possible standards at our plant, where we carry out quality tests every day to ensure S.Pellegrino always reaches your table with the same unmistakable taste.
Selecting the finest fruit flavors
The ingredients used in our Italian Sparkling Drinks are selected with extreme care, to offer a range of refined taste experiences with only the finest fruit juices and flavors. Our drinks are produced exclusively in Italy, and our sun-ripened oranges, lemons and chinotto used for our fruit juices are grown in Sicily and Calabria.
Conserving our terroir
S.Pellegrino mineral water emerges from its spring at the foot of the Italian Alps, an area well-known for its water since the Middle Ages. During its 30-year journey through the earth to get there, the water acquires the mineral content that provides our water with its unique taste. To safeguard this unmistakable taste, we are dedicated to preserving the integrity of the source and its territory.
Caring for the farms
Caring about the ingredients used in our Italian Sparkling Drinks starts with paying the utmost attention to their provenance, and working closely with the farms where the fruit is grown. Over the years, we have established long-lasting strong relationships with our suppliers. Our experts work with our suppliers to ensure the fruit meets our high standards and ensure that every drop of every drink is full of the quality goodness that makes the Sanpellegrino taste truly unmistakeable
Working towards zero waste
Our production and bottling processes are focused on minimizing the environmental impact of our activity by reducing waste. Between 2019 and 2021, the Sanpellegrino Group saved approximately 201 million liters of water through efficiency improvements. Our supplier fruit farms use the drip irrigation system to reduce waste. Since 2010, we have achieved a reduction of approximately 47% in carbon emissions.
Certifying the highest standards
We care about carrying out all of our operations in a sustainable way.
That's why we are proud of the certification of our factory in San Pellegrino Terme with the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) - the global standard for sustainable management of water resources - a benchmark for continuously improving the way we look after the natural resources that are so precious to us.
Preserving quality with sustainable packaging
Sanpellegrino is focused on continuing to innovate our packaging materials, always taking into consideration innovation and sustainability in our packaging. Our product portfolio features a variety of different packaging materials, favoring recyclable materials such as PET, glass and aluminum. What's more, Sanpellegrino is committed to using 50% recycled PET (rPET) by 2025.
Building a plant at one with nature
Sanpellegrino will soon move into an even greener "home". The new Factory of the Future will be created by renovating the existing plant and integrating it even further with its natural surroundings and the local territory. Indeed, Sanpellegrino's commitment to environmental sustainability can be seen in every aspect of this project.
Leaving a lighter footprint
Sanpellegrino® products travel the world, and we constantly seek to reduce the impact of their transportation on the environment. By choosing transport by train and boat wherever possible, optimizing transfer of loads and, at the other end, using innovative means of transport fueled by Liquefied Natural Gas, we have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by up to 15% in recent years.
