Recycled Content

Suggest an Edit

By 2021, we will launch 100% recycled PET bottles in all our major water markets. By 2025, we will reach 25% of recycled material on average in our plastic packaging; 50% on average for our water and beverage bottles; and 100% for evian bottles.

Danone is committed to eliminating the deforestation risks of its virgin paper & board packaging supply chain by 2020. The commitment targets three concrete objectives: actively reduce the weight of paper and board packaging for each product, prefer the use of recycled fibers and, where this is not possible, prefer FSC certified virgin fibers.

 

Bio-based / Renewable Materials

Suggest an Edit

We aim to offer consumers bottles made of 100% renewable plastic (bioPET) by 2025.

Material Efficiency

Suggest an Edit
Statement Of Support

We are seeking new ways to optimize packaging performance at right weights across our product ranges.

Water Consumption

Suggest an Edit

60% of water consumption intensity reduction by 2020.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Suggest an Edit

50% reduction in emission intensity on Danone’s full scope by 2030.

30% absolute reduction in Danone scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2030.

Manufacturing / Operational Waste

Suggest an Edit

In 2016, we set a goal of zero plastics to landfill for our industrial waste by 2020 in countries with developed collection systems, and by 2025 globally.

Improving Recovery Infrastructure

Suggest an Edit

We will step up our investment in private initiatives that strengthen collection and a circular infrastructure, especially in countries where formal systems are absent or in development, or where there is a high risk of leakage into the environment or the oceans.

By 2025, our goal is to have initiated or supported collection and recycling initiatives in each of our top 20 markets (by sales volume, representing around 90% of our total sales).

For polystyrene (PS) packaging, we will follow a dual strategy: significantly reduce our dependency on this material while collaborating to develop the first recycling streams.

Design For Recovery

Suggest an Edit

Our goal for 2025 is for every piece of packaging—from bottle caps to yogurt cups—to be reusable, recyclable, or compostable.

Increasing Recycling

Suggest an Edit

We will sharpen our focus on consumer education in markets with a high risk of leakage.

• In Indonesia, Danone AQUA is committed to leading a nationwide educational campaign on recycling, with dedicated programs in 20 major cities by 2020. To contribute to raising awareness, it aims to scale up the use of special drop-boxes for plastic bottles, to reach up to 100 million consumers by 2025.

Eliminate Unfavorable Materials

Suggest an Edit

For polystyrene (PS) packaging, we will follow a dual strategy: significantly reduce our dependency on this material while collaborating to develop the first recycling streams.

We will phase out all PVC packaging by 2021, since it interferes with the recycling process for PET.

We will take action towards eliminating problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging of our products. We are assessing alternatives to plastic straws, which we will pilot with our Indonesian brand AQUA in 2019.

Responsible Fiber Sourcing

Suggest an Edit

Danone is committed to eliminating the deforestation risks of its virgin paper & board packaging supply chain by 2020. The commitment targets three concrete objectives: actively reduce the weight of paper and board packaging for each product, prefer the use of recycled fibers and, where this is not possible, prefer FSC certified virgin fibers.

Renewable / Alternative Energy

Suggest an Edit

100% renewable electricity by 2030; 50% by 2020.
