S.Pellegrino commits to Carbon Neutrality by 2022
At S.Pellegrino, we care about helping to protect the sources of taste and nurturing livelihoods in harmony with the planet, today and for generations to come. That's why we have announced the ambitious commitment to achieve Carbon Neutrality in all of our operations by 2022.
This means attaining net-zero carbon dioxide emissions through reduction wherever possible in four key areas - production, packaging, logistics and natural capital - and offsetting actions elsewhere.
S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna have been working for years to reduce energy consumption in our production plants. Using energy exclusively from renewable sources, in the 9 years to 2021 we reduced CO2 emissions by 60%. What's more, S.Pellegrino will soon open a groundbreaking new green Flagship Factory, built using locally sourced materials and featuring energy-efficient lighting and a rainwater recycling system to make it a "zero water impact" facility.
All of our bottles and cans are 100% recyclable, and we are increasing the percentage of recycled plastic in our bottles and the wrapping of our multipacks.
We are also working to reduce emissions related to logistics, for example through innovative means of transport, like our fleet of vehicles fueled by LNG, the fossil fuel with the lowest carbon intensity. And we are further reducing our impact by rapidly moving to Bio-LNG – a next generation bio fuel - for both land and sea transport.
Finally, we are committed to the sustainable management of shared water resources, as demonstrated by our certification with the AWS (Alliance for Water Stewardship).
