We are committed to operating sustainably by continuously working to measure and reduce our carbon footprint at every stage of our bottle life cycle from the materials we use, to production, bottling, transportation and recycling
We are continuously optimizing to lessen our environmental impact by increasing efficiency whenever possible. For example, knowing that train transportation carbon footprint is 10x smaller than trucks in France, we transport about 90% of our bottles from our factory to our warehouses by train. Another initiative is that our logistics team is equipped with a carbon calculator to help incorporate carbon impact into decision making.
Considering Packaging & End of life, recycled PET has a 30% lower carbon emissions compared to virgin PET (15% when considering product full life cycle).
In complement to advocate for a circular model, evian aims to use only rPET to produce its bottles by 2025. Currently, we have an average of 45% rPET* across our range of bottles.

Our factory is more than a place for bottling water, it’s also tasked with sustaining a long-term future for the circular economy. This future is being constructed at our factory, the place where all of our products and innovations were created, and where tomorrow’s will be developed to meet its economic, social, and environmental challenges going forward.
Our bottle site is an example of best-in-class energy and environmental management systems. Between 2012 and 2022, the energy consumption per bottle decreased by more than 25%. This reduction has been enabled by several projects, managed by a dedicated team working on a daily basis to monitor and continuously improve energy consumptions.
How we are working to reduce the energy consumption :
Our bottling site is also entirely powered by renewable energy.
