Plastics

Today’s throwaway culture must end. We’re working to keep waste in the economy and out of the environment.

We’re cutting plastic waste by using less plastic, better plastic or, where possible, no plastic at all. We are guided by our ambitious global packaging targets, and we are also committed to Australia’s 2025 National Packaging Targets.

Our global 2025 packaging targets are to:

  • Halve the amount of virgin plastic we use in our packaging.
  • Increase the recycled plastic in our packaging to 25%.
  • Help collect and process more plastic packaging than we sell.
  • Ensure 100% of our plastic packaging is designed to be fully reusable, recyclable or compostable.
