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 recognise we have a responsibility to help keep our environment clean and we take this responsibility seriously.
We are committed to working collaboratively with industry, government and environmental groups to help reduce litter and increase recycling outcomes across in each of the countries in which we operate.
We operate responsibly in all we do to minimise our impact on the environment, ensuring we deliver a positive lasting legacy. This includes minimising our impact on climate change through a focus on energy reduction, leading in packaging innovation and recycling and being an efficient water user and best in class water manager. This has been a strong and consistent focus for our business for many years.
Many of our manufacturing plants have implemented new technologies and initiatives to help reduce our environmental impact through the supply chain and across the total package lifecycle.
In Australia, this has included:
Waste Recovery and Recycling
Our consistent, ongoing focus is to invest and innovate to both minimise and remove materials used in our packaging; and to drive recycling and reuse of our packaging 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.
