Brand Owner Brand-Owner’s perspective on bioplastics and how to unleash its full potential “We believe the time is now to step up and accelerate, embrace our responsibility and work with others to engage a radical shift that will help free the world from packaging waste. We will be acting both at global and local level to ensure circularity of packaging becomes the new norm. (Today), we are announcing a series of investments and commitments that – I believe – will have a concrete impact. These will be amplified as we collaborate with industry-peers, governments, NGOs, start-ups and the finance sector; harness new technologies and invest in new solutions.” And, from a press release: Danone commits to ensure that all its packaging is designed to be 100 % recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025. Already 86 % of our packaging is recyclable, reusable or compostable. In parallel, we will develop the use of renewable, biobased materials. We have a joint project with Nestle, PepsiCo and Origin Materials to bring the first 75 % biobased bottle to commercial scale by 2021, aiming to launch 100 % biobased bottles by 2025.
