We recognise that as the world’s biggest beverage company, we have a responsibility to help solve the world’s packaging problem. We don’t want beverage containers in our oceans or landfill, we want them to be recycled. That’s why, by the end of this year, 70% of our plastic bottles will be made entirely from recycled plastic. We hope our actions will help encourage the growth of a viable recycled plastic economy in Australia.
Coca-Cola Amatil publishes its packaging footprint in our Sustainability Report each year.
In 2018 we committed to the Australian National Packaging Targets:
100% of all Australia’s packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025 or earlier
70% of Australia’s plastic packaging to be recycled or composted by 2025
30% average recycled content to be included across all packaging by 2025
Problematic and unnecessary single-use plastic packaging will be phased out through design, innovation or introduction of alternatives
