Coca-Cola Philippines continues efforts to meet World Without Waste goals

 Coca-Cola Philippines continues to make progress on its ambitious sustainable packaging program, World Without Waste, with significant milestones.

Since the company's global launch of World Without Waste in 2018, Coca-Cola Philippines has implemented a number of innovations and partnerships in the Philippines to achieve its goals. These partnerships and innovations include the introduction of innovative packaging, working with various sectors to establish and support existing collection hubs across the nation to bring collection and recycling closer to communities, and forming strategic alliances with the government, non-governmental organizations, and civil society organizations.

Coca-Cola Philippines promises to keep providing Filipino consumers with their preferred beverage brands in 2023 while also helping communities and building a sustainable business.
Future business in the Philippines. One of the company's immediate goals is to promote the accessibility and appeal of recycling to customers by growing its over 2,800 waste collection centers nationwide through expanded collaborations with like-minded institutions and organizations. This also entails facilitating microentrepreneurs' engagement, especially through the Tapon to Ipon and Tindahan. Extra Mile Balik PET Bottle initiatives are designed to support the development of a circular economy and eliminating plastic packaging while encouraging micro-retailers' economic development.

At present, Coca-Cola Philippines has launched more than 600 Tapon to Ipon store hubs across the country. The company has also partnered with the provincial governments of Iloilo and Davao del Sur for large-scale collection of recyclable plastic bottles. In addition, Coca-Cola Philippines helps improve the welfare of informal waste sector workers by supporting the work of social entrepreneur, Plastic Bank Philippines. The partnership has activated 38 waste collection locations and 651 collection community members in the South Luzon area and has resulted in the collection of 546,000 kilograms of post-consumer bottles for recycling since 2021.

In the Philippines and around the world, The Coca-Cola Company continues to work to create a more accessible way of recycling and working toward a more sustainable future for packaging. The global World Without Waste program is anchored on three interrelated goals: Design, Collect, and Partner.
