Climate impact

We’re committed to operating sustainably by continuously working to measure and reduce our carbon footprint at every stage of our bottle’s lifecycle: from the materials we use and produce, to production, transportation, and recycling.

Carbon neutrality

Certified carbon neutral today. More than ever committed for a sustainable tomorrow.

What does it mean to be carbon neutral? Well, for us, it means bringing you our natural spring water while contributing to reduce our emissions day after day.

We set our sights on becoming certified as carbon neutral and have achieved it by continuously measuring and reducing our carbon emissions at each stage of our bottle’s life cycle: from the materials we use, to production, transportation and recycling. The emissions that remain are then offset through our work with Livelihood Funds that has planted 130 million trees. In fact, we’ve reduced our energy consumption by 25% since 2008, and in 2017 our products in the US and Canada were certified as carbon neutral to the international standard PAS 2060 by the Carbon Trust. And while we’re very proud, that’s not good enough for us. In April 2020, evian was globally certified as carbon neutral by Carbon Trust.

Natural Offsetting

Reducing our impact on climate change and achieving circularity is our number one priority, but in the meantime, we’ve maintained our carbon neutrality by offsetting with the help of the Livelihood Carbon Fund, which Danone co-founded in 2008.

The fund planted nearly 130 million trees to capture carbon emissions naturally. Mangrove trees trap CO2 and generate positive emissions, absorbing carbon and producing oxygen.

And we don’t just plant, we also preserve the water ecosystem and employ local communities. That’s a win-win-win if you ask us.
