Waste & Packaging
We purchase over 2 million tonnes of packaging a year.
Increasing resource scarcity means it is more urgent than ever to be efficient with packaging and find solutions to deal with ‘post-consumer’ waste. We continually look at new ways to reduce, re-use, recycle and recover packaging and waste as we move towards becoming a zero waste business. The business case is clear. Reducing waste creates efficiencies and lowers costs. Re-using materials extends their life, helping to use less of the earth’s precious resources. Recycling allows us to repurpose valuable materials that would otherwise have been wasted. The more we reduce, re-use, recycle and recover our packaging, the greater the cost savings in materials, energy, transport and disposal. The more we can design in a circular way, the more value we can create for our company and for others.
