BIB is easy on the environment

Wine packages are responsible for about 14 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year, which represents about 0.05 % of total human generated greenhouse gases (26 000 million metric tons per year). Glass wine bottles represent 95% of total greenhouse gas emissions from wine packaging even though they represent only about 78% of the total volume of wine sold.

BIB packaging, on the other hand, represents well over 10% of the total volume of wine sold and yet BIB represents far less than 2% of total greenhouse gas emissions from wine packaging (Source “Environmental Impact of Wine Packaging” by Eva Shea, Master II Thesis, University of Aix-en-Provence, September 2009).

What holds for wine relative to package choice and CO2 emissions most certainly holds for other beverages.

Vitop is proud to be part of this vibrant BIB industry that is making a major contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gases and resulting global warming.

In addition, we work on a continual basis to reduce our own energy consumption and waste and to contribute to a further reduction in our carbon footprint.
