ClearCarbon has conducted a simplified carbon footprint product analysis on the ZEO® Box corrugate box to understand the reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with box light-weighting. Using a 2009 as a baseline timeframe, CO2e emission savings were calculated based on utilizing less corrugate material in the design of a 48" x 47.5" x 30.5" box. Annual box specifications, raw materials, processing energy and supplier locations were provided by YFY Paper Corp (ZEO® cardboard maker) in Nanjing, China and standard industry data in Ecoinvent 2.1 were used to model the ZEO® Box and an equivalent average box of the same dimensions. A summary of the results follows. 

 

Overall, the ZEO® Box compared to the average cardboard box saves 185 tons of CO2e per year. This is based on 2009 results received and replacing 526,000 boxes with ZEO® Boxes. The carbon footprint analysis considered the relevant "life cycle" phases of the box, including:

  • Raw material,
  • Raw material transportation,
  • Manufacturing of the box, and
  • Distribution of the box.

The raw material and manufacturing life cycle phases contribute the majority of carbon savings for the ZEO® Box when comparing to the Average box.
