Life cycle thinking
Its important to evaluate the performance of a product and its packaging over the entire life cycle.
The environmental performance of tinplate production shows continuous improvement since 2006.
Global Warming potential of tinplate production (mainly CO2 emissions) has reduced by 12%.
Acidification and Photochemical Ozone Creation Potential (POCP) have also decreased, -35% and -20% respectively.
Recycling delivers 30% energy savings and 46% less CO2 emissions.
