    THE SPADEL GROUP OBTAINS THE 'CO2 NEUTRAL' LABEL FOR ALL ITS PRODUCTION SITES AND PRODUCTS

    The year 2020 was a turning point for the Spadel Group in more ways than one. Although many goals were attained, being granted the ‘CO2 Neutral’ label is a source of particular pride. In 2010, the Group set itself the ambitious goal of attaining carbon neutrality in 2020 and it is now the first mineral water group in Europe to achieve this. It means that, when you buy the brands SPA, BRU, Wattwiller, Carola or Devin, the carbon impact has been fully offset.

    As part of a partnership between Spadel and IVN Nature Education, Amsterdam has planted its first Tiny Forest in one of the city’s primary schools. The children there planted almost 600 trees, which will help improve biodiversity, give the children a wonderful educational experience and capture around 127 kg of CO2 emissions per year.

    CAROLA 'BREDELE CHALLENGE'

    This was the fifth year of the Bredele Challenge, a solidarity operation for the benefit of Secours Populaire Français or French Popular Relief, a non-profit organisation dedicated to fighting poverty and discrimination in public life. “Make your bredele (small cakes or biscuits traditionally baked in Alsace) using local products to support committed producers. If drinking local, Carola’s strong message, makes perfect sense, the same is true for other regional products. This, too, is a way of supporting our local companies and jobs, particularly given the circumstances created by the Covid-19 health crisis.
