-Plastic bottles — a driver for achieving the European Green Deal

As the European Commission prepares to unveil new policies to tackle plastic and waste, Nestlé Waters outlines how it is encouraging the EU to boost the circular economy.

“To be very clear: it is unacceptable that any packaging is littered. No packaging should end up in the environment; not in landfills nor oceans.”

“To be very clear: it is unacceptable that any packaging is littered. No packaging should end up in the environment; not in landfills nor oceans” she says, “and it’s up to us in the industry to try to ensure our bottles get returned and recycled, rather than thrown away.”

This has become a core mission for Nestlé Waters, as one of the key ways it is looking to support the environment. The company believes there is value in PET bottles, especially if they are properly collected and recycled.

That’s why Nestlé Waters is paying close attention to the upcoming review of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive, expected later this year. The European Commission wants to update the law to bring it in line with the EU’s wider circular economy and European Green Deal policies. Carbon-black – Plastic-bottles

Lienau explains what’s at stake and how Nestlé Waters can help make a difference.
