Red Bull established its business 24 years ago, in Austria. Nowadays, Red Bull Energy Drink is available in more than 160 countries and sold more than 4 billion times a year. That means a lot of aluminium cans are used to deliver the product in top quality to places all over the globe. Naturally, Red Bull’s production and distribution has an environmental impact. Red Bull is very aware of its environmental responsibility, and is constantly striving for improvement in this area, with the aim to keep environmental impact at an absolute minimum.
The environmental impact of the can
The smaller the carbon footprint, the better
Less energy and fewer raw materials
Using the latest technological advances to lessen environmental impact
Whether through increasing implementation of wall-to-wall production or optimising of its supply chain, Red Bull sets itself ambitious targets to further minimise its environmental impact and energy use. For example, the share of cans being transported by rail and sea is steadily increasing, with an aim to replacing road transport, whenever possible. What’s more, the use of ecologically efficient refrigerators and cooling agents is a significant means to cut down on greenhouse gases. 240,000 ECO coolers are already in use by Red Bull and all coolers purchased in the future will be ECO coolers, except in the few, rare cases where this is not yet possible, due to 3rd party limitations beyond our control.
