Frederic di Monte, Global Sustainability Marketing manager at SIG, received Packaging Europe's Sustainability Award 2023 ("Climate" category) on behalf of SIG.

Packaging specialist SIG’s Terra Alu-free Full barrier, said to be the world’s first full barrier packaging material without aluminum layer for aseptic carton packs, has won Packaging Europe’s prestigious Sustainability Award 2023 in the ‘Climate’ category.

The awards are a global competition for sustainable packaging innovation and SIG was up against tough competition from all over the world. SIG Terra Alu-free Full barrier stood out to the jury. It has a high renewable share, a low carbon footprint and is designed for recycling.

Removing the aluminum layer reduces energy needs in the supply chain and contributes to lowering the CO 2 footprint of packaging. SIG is the innovator in the field of packaging materials without aluminum layer and has been since 2010. SIG Terra Alu-free Full barrier further extends SIG’s lower-carbon packaging materials without aluminum layer for wider use with oxygen-sensitive products such as fruit juices, nectars, flavored milk and plant-based beverages. This provides better access to healthy nutrition and reduces food waste, even in countries with complex supply chains, the company said.

The Sustainability Awards’ mission is to illuminate the most important innovation and initiatives across the packaging value chain, helping to accelerate adoption of best practice, better technologies, and nurturing cross-fertilization of ideas, in order to support positive environmental impacts.
