Nestlé To Design Fully Recyclable, Compostable To-Go Cups | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

Nestlé has announced that it is collaborating with other industry partners to design a fully recyclable, compostable fibre cup as part of the NextGen Consortium and Cup Challenge. The move is a part of the company's efforts to address the problem of plastic pollution, and a step towards its goal of making 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

EcoVadis's insight:

All commercial enterprises have a duty to try to minimise waste and take all opportunities to prevent, reuse, recycle or recover waste. With the introduction of recycling operations it is easier to comply with regulations and enables you to be better prepared for future legislation

Kellogg sets sustainable packaging goal for 2025

Kellogg sets sustainable packaging goal for 2025 | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

The Kellogg Co. is working toward a goal of using 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by the end of 2025. The packaging goal becomes part of Kellogg’s global sustainability commitments, which include responsible sourcing of ingredients, sustainable agriculture, and resources and training for holders of small farms. Battle Creek-based Kellogg cited data from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation showing 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling globally and 5% is retained for secondary use. Kellogg already has taken steps in sustainable packaging. The company has a goal of transitioning to compostable and paper food service products in all its plants and offices globally by the end of 2018. Kellogg also is working with suppliers to identify packaging designs that minimize waste. An example is in Europe where Kellogg wants its cereal pouches to be recycle-ready by late 2019, which would remove an estimated 480 tonnes of non-recyclable packaging from its supply chain each year.

EcoVadis's insight:

The  Food and Beverage industry has a significant potential to impact the sustainability of supply chains, and makes it a crucial element to achieving a circular economy. Food and Beverage packaging is among the most recycled packaging and we see increasing recycling rates for bottle and containers every year.
