Eco2Bottle winebottle

The greener
wine bottle

The wine bottle that once again significantly minimises your carbon footprint. Due to an extremely high component of used glass, the reduced weight of the bottle, the optimised transport packaging and the use of eco-power, we are able to effectively reduce emissions by more than 30% compared to that of a standard wine bottle.1 And what we are currently not able to avoid or reduce, we compensate by investments in preferred regional climate protection projects.

We take a look at sustainability beyond the bottle neck. 30% less emission + climate neutral

1) According to the comparative calculation of our ClimatePartner between the Eco2Bottle and the standard wine bottle, which represents the average of all 0.75 l Bordeaux bottles from the Wiegand-Glashüttenwerke GmbH range.

Strong measures for
a greener wine bottle

Eco2Bottle winebottle
  • High percentage of waste glass of min. 92,5%

    Our bottle is produced from 92.5% to 98% green cullet. According to BV Glas, the average of "waste" cullet used in Germany is around 60%. This means that we save up to 11.4% energy and 13.3% CO2 compared to an average bottle only due to the very high shard input.

  • significantly reduced weight

    Due to the modified construction, the bottle weight could be reduced significantly. Consistent quality despite minimal thickness of the walls is ensured due to our innovative production and control techniques. Eventually, we shall keep reducing the weight even further. Compared to the average weight of our 0.75 l wine bottles produced in 2019, the Eco2Bottle is 15.7% lighter.

  • Optimal packaging

    Using cargo space efficiently is one of our strategies to reduce the carbon impact of transport. We realise pallet heights of up to 2.90 metres. Reusable layer pads and stacked pallets are additional options. More pieces per pallet means less CO2 emissions per piece.

  • 100% eco power

    In production, we rely on power from renewable energy sources. With the purchase of certified eco power from high-quality sources, we guarantee that the power supplier has produced this quantity of green energy.

  • Climate-neutral gas consumption

    With our investments in preferred regional climate and nature conservation projects, we compensate for the emissions caused by burning natural gas in the production process. We hereby guarantee that the generated CO2 value is fully compensated.

Eco2Bottle makes wine
only really sustainable

Our Eco2Bottle wine bottle closes the circle of a sustainable wine economy - from the vineyard to the transport to the POS. It significantly improves the CO2 balance of a wine once again. It is therefore the perfect choice for any winegrower who wishes to reduce their own CO2 footprint. This also applies to consumers who value sustainability not only in the wine itself, but also in the packaging.
