Packaging accounts for one third of Systembolaget’s climate impactError! Source with slug 'miljoutredni' is not defined!. Heavy, single-use glass bottles have the biggest impact, which is why we want to reduce the amount of glass in our bottles.
Systembolaget’s environmental work includes everything from increased recycling to more resource-efficient lighting in our stores. But our own operations only account for 2 per cent of our total climate impact, and the investigation commissioned by Systembolaget shows that one third of our indirect global climate impact comes from packagingError!

We have also seen the increasing importance of environmental issues for more and more people – our customers and the general public want and expect us to develop our operations sustainably. This expectation is shared by our owners. By reducing our climate impact, Systembolaget can help create a more sustainable society. Lighter glass bottles, recyclable glass bottles, aluminium cans, cardboard packaging, and PET bottles are more eco-friendly than single-use glass bottlesError!

Our ambition is for our suppliers to switch to lighter glass bottles. For the drinks industry as a whole, the changeover will mean we are helping to ensure lower CO2 emissions and a more sustainable societal development. The climate benefits that could be achieved if all of the still wine sold by Systembolaget switched to lighter bottles could, theoretically speaking, mean a reduction in CO2 emissions of approximately 10,000 tonnes.
