    In 2007, Red Bull was fined by the Environment Agency of the U.K. for violations of packaging and recycling policies, namely, neglecting to register with the Environment Agency as a producer of packaging waste and failure to meet recycling standards.

    This depends on what you mean by “Red Bull”.  If you are talking about just the drink itself, then no, not particularly.  The ingredients are generally vitamins and minerals found in nature or that our body would produce, such as Caffeine, B-Vitamins and the taurine.  If you are talking about everything that goes into the production, including manufacturing of the product from raw materials to delivery of the product to the stores, then there would be a considerable environmental impact.  The answer above gives you an idea into the company’s policies and concern for the environment.  Additionally, I would like to pose that likely the most environmentally unfriendly aspect of Red Bull is their sponsorship of the Red Bull Air Races.  These races would use gallons of fuel during each show and produce particulate matter that would contribute to global warming.  I could not find any information regarding offsets or green initiatives for Red Bull.

    As of 2008, Red Bull had been working with ClimateCHECK, a consulting firm that helps companies manage their emissions, to reduce the greenhouse gases they released.  The goal was to measure the GHG emissions from all U.S. operations.  Air travel was also being taken into consideration since Red Bull is an international company that requires employees on a corporate level to travel.
