As much as 95% of the new carton pack is linked to plant-based raw materials such as paperboard made from renewable and responsibly sourced wood and polymers linked to wood-based tall oil, a residue extracted from wood in the paper making process. Besides that, all three main materials are certified as 100% responsibly sourced. The paperboard is FSCTM-certified, the polymers certified via an independently certified mass balance system and the aluminum certified by the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative (ASI). The closure is linked to plant-based polymers, too. An independent lifecycle assessment shows that Signature reduces the carbon footprint of carton packs.

The move to aseptic carton packs linked to 100% responsibly sourced materials is in line with Coca-Cola's sustainability ambitions. The group has the ambition to become climate-neutral across the entire value chain by 2040. Over the past ten years, Coca-Cola European Partners has already reduced its CO2 emissions by 30% through initiatives in the areas of transport, cooling, production and packaging. For the next ten years, the goal is to reduce emissions by another 30%.
