ENVIRONMENT

As a leading beverage manufacturer in New Zealand, we’re committed to understanding and minimising the impacts our operations may have on our environment. 

The world has a packaging problem and like all companies, we have a responsibility to help solve it. By investing in our planet and our packaging, we can help make the world’s packaging problem a thing of the past. We’re committed to waste reduction, recycling, collection and innovation of packaging that are focused on where we can make the most difference.

INVESTING IN OUR PACKAGING

 

  • In New Zealand, all of our plastic bottles, aluminium cans and glass packaging are 100% recyclable. This means after its use, our bottles can be re-used to make things like other bottles, t-shirts, carpets or furniture.
  • We support The Coca-Cola Company’s World Without Waste goals. By 2030, for every bottle or can we sell, we aim to help to take one back so it has more than one life
  • Our coffee business introduced Ecoware compostable cups and lids as part of the offering to customers. These cups are sustainably created and commercially compostable.
  • All of our plastic soft drink bottles 600ml and smaller contains 25% recycled plastic.
