“Carbon footprint of soft drinks packaging” is a comparative analysis that explores the carbon footprint of soft drinks packaging. It includes relative carbon footprint ranges of five different beverage packaging types; one way and refillable PET and glass bottles, and aluminium cans, including a view of a typical European pack.

This study by Carbon Trust looks beyond the simple question of which packaging material has the lowest carbon footprint. It considers the various factors affecting the carbon footprint of each alternative to establish the respective footprint ranges and highlight the key drivers to reduce the carbon footprint for each pack type according to specific market circumstances.
