Our 4 Pillars of ESG

As global citizens, we are always working to create a more purposeful, sustainable, and enjoyable future. Our four pillars guide our work now and into the future.


For decades, our passion for the environment has been at the heart of everything we do. It’s led us to be an industry leader in bottle-to-bottle recycling, as well as a pioneer in responsible packaging design and low carbon production. Building on our strong foundations, we’ve fully embraced the wider aspects of ESG, actively playing our part in the drive towards achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
