BEVERAGES & FOOD CHAIN


Swire Beverages has joined the New Plastics Economy, a global initiative involving over 40 companies, governments, NGOs, and scientists in a collaborative partnership that aims to create a global economy in which plastics never become waste. According to The New Plastics Economy – Rethinking the future of plastics, a report published by the World Economic Forum and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2016, most plastic packaging is used only once and 95% of the value of plastic packaging material, worth US$80-120 billion annually, is lost to the economy. While plastics and plastic packaging are an integral part of the global economy and deliver many benefits, plastic waste is a growing environmental problem. There are opportunities for the plastics value chain to deliver better system-wide economic and environmental outcomes. As the world’s fifth largest Coca-Cola bottler, Swire Beverages joins other global companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Danone, MARS, Unilever and Veolia in committing to decreasing its environmental footprint in plastics through innovation in packaging, as well as engaging consumers in better recycling solutions.
