A recent report, published by EMPAC
(European Metal Packaging), the European association of the metal packaging industry, shows that there has been a clear reduction in the carbon footprint of metal products since 2006. The organisation’s life-cycle assessment, which is certified under an ISO standard
, is based on data obtained from leading metal packaging manufacturers and their suppliers in 2013. It covers aerosol cans, food cans, packaging for chemical products and speciality packaging.
