The sample packaging is intended to explore the potential for further reduction of CO2 emissions. The carbon footprint, calculated in cooperation with ClimatePartner (Munich, Germany;, is said to be 71% lower than that of comparable packaging made from fossil raw materials and is made up of emissions over the entire life cycle of the packaging, including disposal. The areas of filling material, trade and use phase were not taken into account.
