​​​​Climate smart packaging

Research shows that Tetra Pak carton packaging is a climate smart choice

By developing environmentally smart products, Tetra Pak can make it easier for people to choose more sustainable options. An important starting point is to base our decisions on knowledge and facts. One tool we use to find out about the climate and environmental impact of our products is a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).


What is a Life Cycle Assesment

A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method that measures the environmental impact of different products. It analyses each step of the value chain: energy use, the extraction of raw materials and its use, production, transportation, product handling, recycling, and end of life. LCAs ordered by Tetra Pak are conducted by independent researchers and are independently reviewed by an expert panel. An LCA gives insight into what the key issues are for us to address so we can improve the environmental performance of our products.
