Sweden: Coca Cola goes 100 per cent recycling
The transition will begin in the first quarter of 2020 and includes all plastic (PET) packaging made at Coca-Cola’s bottling plant in Jordbro. By switching to 100% recycled material in its bottles, Coca-Cola wants to eliminate the use of 3,500 tons of virgin plastic each year in Sweden. This should also result in an annual reduction in CO2 emissions of 25 per cent over pre-transition levels, when the portfolio comprised approximately 40 per cent recovered PET.
According to the company, the move to 100 per cent recycled plastics for PET bottles includes the brands Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite as well as Bonaqua, comprising 40 different variants.
