Using Life Cycle Assessments to quantify and track progress
We use Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) to provide insights on the relative environmental impacts (from both the packaged product and the packaging) at every stage of a product's journey.
These assessments are based on the ISO 14040 life cycle assessment standard and are performed using our proprietary tool, ASSETTM.
Stelvin®: an asset for sustainable consumption
According to the Quantis 2010 LCA study a bottle closure (whatever the material) accounts for between only 0.001% to 3% of a bottle of wine' s total environmental impact.
Just a small amount of wine spoilage due to cork taint has a much higher environmental impact than the production of the bottle closure.
Alufoil Closures Group
We are proud to be part of the Alufoil Closures Group and the Turn 360° campaign.
The leading manufacturers of aluminium closures launched the pan-European "Aluminium Closures - Turn 360°" campaign to enhance public awareness about the advantages of aluminium closures.
The campaign, organised through the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA), presents closures made of aluminium as a more sustainable, intelligent and economic alternative to other closure systems. Aluminium closures offer many benefits in areas such as preserving wine taste and quality, sustainability and recycling, convenience, technology, cost efficiency, and design options.
Providing easy-to-grasp information and the latest scientific findings regarding sustainability, the aluminium closure industry clearly demonstrates the superior characteristics of aluminium closures.Visit www.aluminium-closures.org for more information.
