The Australian beverage industry has almost 40 years’ experience operating the well-known container deposit scheme in South Australia.
As a leading manufacturer across the Asia Pacific region, we have a responsibility to help keep our environment clean. It's a responsibility we take seriously.
We work collaboratively with industry, government and environmental groups to reduce litter and increase recycling outcomes in each of the countries in which we operate.
We operate responsibly in all we do to deliver a positive and lasting environmental legacy. This includes minimising our impact on climate change through a focus on energy reduction, packaging innovation and recycling, and being an efficient water user and best in class water manager.
Many of our manufacturing plants have implemented new technologies and initiatives to reduce our environmental impact through the supply chain and package lifecycle.
In Australia, this has included:
Waste Recovery and Recycling
Our consistent focus is in innovation and minimisation in packaging, and in driving recycling and reuse after the product is consumed.
CCA has a dedicated packaging team delivering on this commitment. All our packaging is, and has been, evaluated for sustainability and compatibility with recycling facilities across all aspects of its design and function.
The Australian beverage industry has almost 40 years’ experience operating the well-known container deposit scheme (CDS) in South Australia via Statewide Recycling and Marine Stores with experienced CDS industry operators also involved in the relatively new Northern Territory CDS.
In Australia, NSW and Queensland Governments are proposing to introduce a CDS, and the Australian beverage industry is applying its experience and expertise in CDS operations to ensure any new container deposit scheme is operated effectively, and efficiently, with minimal impacts to consumers and manufacturers.
