American coffeemaker Keurig Green Mountain has ‘nearly completed’ its goal to eliminate waste sent to landfills at its North America operations.
The company has today released its 12th annual sustainability report which showcases its efforts across the globe in three areas: environmental responsibility, strong supply chains, and thriving people and communities.
In the report, Keurig highlights its progress towards a number of its 2020 environmental responsibility commitments.
It aims to reduce life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of beverages by 25% and plans to produce all K-Cup pods in Canada in a recyclable format by the end of 2018.
Keurig CEO Bob Gamgort said: “Our progress on the sustainability front will enable growth for the company, opening doors of opportunity for our employees, our customers, and our business as a whole.”
The report highlights Keurig’s work to improve recycling systems through collaborations with organisations such as The Closed Loop Fund and The Recycling Partnership.
Chief sustainability officer Monique Oxender said: “We know that reducing the resources that we and our consumers use every day yields environmental sustainability for our business, and we are proud of our accelerated progress.”
