Why Orora Cans are a sustainable choice

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable  ✓

  • Aluminium is infinitely recyclable, which means you can recycle it over and over again without any loss of quality. According to the Australian Aluminium Council, making new cans from used aluminium requires only 5% of the energy needed to make a new can from scratch.

Over 60% Recycled Materials  ✓

  • Orora Beverage cans are made from aluminium coils that on average contain more than 60% recycled content.

Orora is powered by renewable energy  ✓

  • Our long-term renewable energy agreements cover volumes equivalent to 80% of Orora’s electricity requirements in Australia.

We're making the most of the sun  ✓

  • We have installed five solar arrays at four sites across Australia to collectively generate around 770 MWh and offset ~487 tonnes of CO2e pa.

Closing the loop on cans  ✓

  • During can production, scrap aluminium is collected and returned to aluminium manufacturers for recycling into new beverage cans.

Innovating for our planet  

  • We're currently exploring more ways to increase the sustainability of our products, such as replacing all aluminium coil packaging materials (cores, layer boards, strapping) to ensure either recyclable in market or returnable for reuse. Minimising any waste associated with this infinitely recyclable material.

Can ends range

Can ends are designed to deliver a quality seal and easy opening for the consumer, while providing an enjoyable drinking experience.

Orora’s easy-open ends are all about convenience. The ring-pull feature is easy to open yet secure enough to sustain the internal pressure of carbonated beverages.


The result is Orora's trusted beverage can end – safe, tamper-evident, and available in two sizes of 200 (50mm) and 202 (52mm).

Laser incised and coloured tabs

Incising is similar to embossing, with the text or symbol etched into the surface of the tab. We can also incise the underside of the tab for unique brand communication and consumer promotions.
 

Add impact and maximise brand visibility with our extensive palette of coloured can ends and tabs. Choose from a range of different colours and mix it up with different coloured tabs and customised can ends.
