Campbell Commits To Sustainable Goals

Flexo Market News

Campbell Soup Company has announced four new sustainability goals, including a pledge to ensure that 100 percent of the packaging used by its brands is re- cyclable or compostable by 2030. According to Campbell, the aim of the four goals is to reduce packaging waste through investments in recy- clability, use of recycled content, and consumer educa- tion and infrastructure. To achieve its four new targets,Campbell claims it will: • Transition 100 percent of its packaging to recycla- ble or industrially compostable designs and materials by 2030. • Increase the use of post-consumer recycled con- tent and incorporate 25 percent post-consumer recy- cled content into polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles by 2030. • Drive increases in recycling rates through standard- ized on-pack labelling by including the How2Recycle label on 100 percent of packaging by 2022. • Expand access to recycling and advance the de- velopment of infrastructure to improve the collection and recycling of packaging by building and investing in partnerships with peers and industry groups. Campbell claimed that its V8 V-Fusion and V8 Blends multi-serve bottles switched from shrink sleeve labels to wrap labels in 2019, while snack bags were rede- signed for its Kettle brand, which resulted in a 43 per- cent reduction in plastic. The company says that it has already implemented How2Recycle instructions on several of its products, and will continue to roll the labels out until 2022.
