Coca-Cola in Sweden first out to change the entire locally produced PET portfolio to 100 percent recycled plastic

Stockholm, Sweden

Coca-Cola in Sweden is the first market in the world to switch to 100 percent recycled plastic for the entire locally produced portfolio. The changeover will commence during the first quarter of 2020 and concerns all PET bottles produced in Jordbro. The change means a reduction in the use of newly manufactured plastics by approximately 3,500 tonnes per year.

By switching to packaging of 100 per cent recycled plastic, Coca-Cola wants to contribute to the transition towards a circular economy where all packaging is collected, reused or recycled. Increasing the proportion of recycled material in packaging is an effective way of reducing its carbon footprint.

Plastic is an effective packaging material, provided that it is collected and reused so that nothing is rubbish. Coca-Cola in Sweden wants to help contribute to the transition towards a circular economy. Now we take a big step when we as the first market in the world go over to 100 percent recycled plastic for the entire locally produced portfolio, ”says Sofie Eliasson Morsink, CEO of Coca-Cola European Partners Sverige AB.
