    Goals / Remit

    ACE – The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment – provides a European 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.

    The ACE members are committed to providing a safe, circular, and sustainable packaging solution suitable for the needs of today and the future. Through the sourcing of renewable materials from sustainably managed forests and recycling at end-of-life, our packaging has a reduced environmental footprint and contributes to a low carbon circular economy, which makes it a smart and sustainable choice.
