The 0.35 g of CO2 that is released by the Berlin water companies for every litre of drinking water produced is largely due to the power consumption of the pumps. Without a 3-D representation, the consumption is not visual in the graphic.
The wide range of emissions resulting from bottled water productions is particularly dependent on the place of bottling and the type of bottles used. Regional mineral and table water in reusable glass bottles have the best footprint.
In comparison, the emissions of bottled water are 400 to 2,800 times more.
