|Red Bull uses mainly tin cans for its drinks and works towards correct handling of packaging materials as well as reduction of carbon emissions during production.
The aluminium of the can can be completely recycled, the recycling (by melting) can save up to 95% of energy compared to new production. The low weight of the material counts positively towards energy and CO2 emissions during transport.
Transport distances are minimized by "wall-to-wall production", where beverages and cans are produced and filled in one production site. The transport is then done by train and ship to the world. Truck transport is avoided like this.
The refrigerators in use are ECO friendly, to save up to 45 % on energy.
