PROTECTING PLANET

Protecting the future of our planet and the long-term success of our customers.

Protecting Planet - how we do it

Our approach to protecting the planet is grounded in our commitment to a low-carbon circular economy. To that end, we have worked for years to reduce the environmental impact and increase the renewability of our packages. Now we are accelerating our efforts as we pursue our vision of the ideal beverage carton: a fully renewable and recyclable package.

At the same time, we are contributing to a low-carbon society by striving to minimise impact across our entire value chain. We are protecting biodiversity, and establishing water stewardship, by working with our suppliers and through third-party verification. We are also working to optimise our own operations and, through our solutions and services, those of our customers. And finally, we are promoting recycling and circularity, through our own activities and through partnerships worldwide.

Responsible sourcing

Every purchase decision we make as a business has an impact. Responsible sourcing means going beyond the traditional factors of cost, quality and delivery time in our decision making.

Environmental impact

We are working with suppliers and customers to minimise our environmental impact across the entire value chain, from sourcing to production, use to disposal.

Circular economy

Our business prevents food from being wasted and optimises the use of resources. In this way, the principles of circularity are at the very heart of our business. Our value chain approach and partnerships are helping normalise the circular economy.

Flattened, used packages being recycled

Post-consumer recycling

We take a proactive and pioneering approach to make sure cartons are collected, sorted and recycled so that they keep delivering value. When a recycling value chain is working well, it also prevents littering, saves resources and reduces climate impact – all of which are vital to our shared sustainable future.
