Enjoy with clear conscience from the glass.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. We will meet this challenge with our innovative beverage concept.
As an innovative company, we strive for constantly improve of our products and technologies – based on the needs of our customers and in harmony with our environment.
The Technical University of Graz has calculated the ecological footprint and the CO2 footprint of our Grapos beverage concept. We were sure that we come off well. But we have achieved excellent results:
The study (completed in 2012):
“Compare the ecological footprint and the CO2 footprint of a glass of “Grapos soft drink” served to the guest in a restaurant to an equivalent drink out of a bottle”
The comparison speaks for itself:
Our ecological footprint is 90% smaller than bottled drinks, although the bottle itself has been calculated with a life cycle of 50.
Also the CO2 footprint is 90% smaller than beverages in reusable glass bottles.
TU Graz – the summary:
A small illustration
If all Austrians, once only, take a glass of “Grapos softdrink” instead of a bottled drink, the CO2 emissions-saving is as big as driving 63 times around the earth by car or flying 5 times to the moon*. It is therefore worthwhile to prefer the glass.
You also reduce your ecological footprint
Each restaurant operator, using the “Grapos beverage concept”, saves up to 44% CO2-emission and 40% of energy in cooling drinks. Colds stores and drawers are not necessary because the dispensing unit directly cools the taped softdrink. So you save the investment of expensive cooling technology and also high energy costs.
For the future any company, that uses the climate-friendly Grapos-concept, is allowed to inform their guests that they can actively contribute on climate change with each drink. This is good for image and sales – and especially for our planet.
