Our commitment to the environment and packaging recycling
As part of our corporate and social responsibility charter, we are a member of Repak - Ireland’s producer recycling fund


Our membership of Repak ensures that we meet our responsibility to the environment and to the Irish public by contributing to the cost of recycling the packaging which we supply to our customers.


Over the last decade, membership of Repak has enabled us and over 2,000 other Irish businesses to contribute over €200m to support Ireland’s national packaging recycling programmes.


Ireland has achieved a packaging recycling rate of more than 65% through our financial contribution and the contribution of other Irish businesses. In 2009 this partnership resulted in the recovery for recycling of over 650,000 tonnes of used packaging. Since Repak’s establishment in 1997, over 5 million tonnes of used packaging has been diverted from landfill, with a sizeable benefit to the environment. Ireland is now ranked among the best performing states in the EU for packaging recycling.

Our contribution also supports:

  • door to door recycling collection services for 1.1 million households throughout Ireland

  • over 2,000 bring banks nationwide for glass, cans, plastic and other recyclable materials

  • up to 100 recycling centres that accept used packaging and other household recyclables

  • promotion and education of packaging recycling in schools, homes and businesses

     

Together, we and other Repak members, through packaging recycling, achieve a saving of over 600,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year - equivalent to the emissions of over 320,000 cars.

We thank our customers and all our partners who have helped support this important contribution to the environment.
