Our planet: harmony with nature

We want to help manage our natural resources sustainably, creating harmony with nature and protecting our environment for the next generation. We minimise our environmental impact through the whole product lifecycle: sourcing, manufacturing, packaging, distributing, selling and recycling and managing post-consumer waste.

Respect water

Water is in everything we do as a business. Protecting this precious resource for future generations is a key part of our Mizu To Ikiru promise. To fulfil this promise we are constantly innovating to develop sustainable water management practices.

To achieve our objective to reduce water at our production plants by 15% by 2030 we are implementing a number of water reduction and reuse initiatives in our factories. We are also sharing best practices internally to increase the efficiency of our water use.

Reduce emissions

We’re committed to tackling climate change by reducing our carbon emissions across our whole value chain. We have set clear, science-based targets to reduce our emissions from both our factories and our supply chain, with the objective of having net zero carbon emissions by 2050. We track our carbon footprint annually to measure our progress against those targets and to be transparent in our reporting.

Less and more sustainable packaging

Our global company ambition is to only use 100% sustainable plastic bottles by 2030. Quite simply that means we will no longer use plastic bottles that have been made using plastic derived from fossil fuel. To achieve that we have set ourselves the objective of using 50% recycled plastic content in all our bottles by 2025, and by 2030 we will only use recycled plastic. Some of our brands already use containers made with 100% recycled plastic (rPET) including Ribena and MayTea. We are designing our products for circularity, and making sure that 100% of our packaging is recyclable by 2025 or sooner. We also want as many of our drinks containers collected and recycled – and that’s why we fully support effective deposit return schemes or best-in-class alternatives.

Less waste

We want our production facilities to be zero waste to landfill, as part of our ambition to eliminate waste across the entire value chain by implementing circular economy principles. Our efforts in increasing the amount of recycled and recyclable materials in our bottles and packaging also contribute to this objective.

Reducing food waste from our production is another of our objectives. For example, we redirect surplus product to food bank charities and community organisations to support vulnerable people in need.

Procure sustainably

Climate change and non-sustainable farming practices harm our environment and have an impact on biodiversity. As a business that works closely with farmers and suppliers for the fruit for our soft drink brands, we want to have a positive influence. We are developing biodiversity plans, working with local suppliers and developing sustainability and environmental guidelines for our supply chain to improve water and energy use and minimise our carbon footprint.
