The Europe-wide “Comparative life-cycle assessment of packaging systems for non-carbonated soft drinks” commissioned by SIG Combibloc, analyzes and compares the environmental impacts of beverage cartons, disposable PET bottles and disposable glass bottles across three main relevant packaging sizes (200-250ml; 1,000ml; 1,500ml). The assessment includes NCSD (non-carbonated soft drinks) packaging in the juices, nectars and still fruit drinks categories. The study was performed in accordance with the relevant ISO standards (ISO 14040 and ISO 14044) and accompanied by a critical review process.
