Through the industry’s 2030 Roadmap1, ACE’s (The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment) members adopted an ambitious vision for 2030 and beyond: to deliver the most sustainable packaging for resilient food supply systems, which is renewable, climate positive and circular.
ACE – The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment – provides aEuropean platform for beverage carton manufacturers and their paperboard suppliers to benchmark and profile beverage cartons as a safe, circular, and sustainable packaging solution with low carbon benefits. ACE members include beverage carton producers Tetra Pak, SIG Combibloc, and Elopak. They develop, manufacture, and market safe, circular, and sustainable systems for the packaging and distribution of food and beverages and produce packaging material at 20 plants in Europe. Around 98% of the paperboard used by ACE members to produce beverage cartons in Europe is produced by Stora Enso in Skoghall (Sweden) and Imatra (Finland), and Billerud in Gävle and Frövi (Sweden), who are also members of ACE.
