Molson Coors signs up to waste packaging compliance scheme
Britain's biggest brewer, Molson Coors has signed up to the British Beer & Pub Association(BBPA) SUSTAIN waste packaging compliance scheme.
Joining the SUSTAIN scheme will reduce the cost for BBPA members of buying Packaging Recovery Notes (PRNs), as well as providing comprehensive support and industry-specific expertise. Under the new scheme launched in September 2014, brewers can achieve major cost savings, says the BBPA.
Also joining Molson Coors are Frederic Robinson, Harvey & Son, Joseph Holt, St Austell, JW Lees, Spirit, Enterprise Inns, and Daniel Thwaites. These companies join Charles Wells, Hook Norton, Black Sheep, Fuller's and Shepherd Neame, which were the first five members of the scheme.
Brigid Simmonds, BBPA chief executive and a director of SUSTAIN, commented: “This is a great start to 2015, and shows that the SUSTAIN partnership is making the business case to BBPA members as well as delivering for the environment, by reducing waste. We look forward to recruiting further new members.”
