Good Makes A Great Comeback!
STRIVING FOR A CIRCULAR WORLD
We believe in a world where we all pitch in—making it better for everyone, everywhere. We want a world where we all benefit on a local level by recycling, reusing and renewing with the resources we already have. Therefore, we look to the future, aiming to further minimize our impact on the planet and make the move to a more circular system. See below just how we’re making it happen.
Each bottle of Absolut is made from more than 41% recycled glass. Our mission for progression isn’t finished, we continually strive to increase the amount of recycled glass in our bottles—1% at a time.
In our production process, we send almost no waste to landfill. In fact, less than 1% of our production waste goes to landfills.
Energy-efficiency has been among our top priorities throughout the years, and today, our distillery is one of the most energy-efficient in the world (Source: 2018 Bier Benchmarking Executive Summary).
We’re proud to say we have CO2 neutral distillation. We achieve this by planting trees to offset carbon emissions and using approximately 85% renewable energy at our facilities (Internal Audited Data).
LET’S REMIX THE UAE
In 2019, we generated almost 900,000,000 kilograms of domestic waste. (Source: UAE government waste management department, 2019)
Only 10% of the population recycles. (Source: Euromonitor, 2019)
The UAE has one of the highest per-capita waste generation rates in the world. (Source: Gulf News, 2018)
BUT its citizens are putting sustainability in the forefront. (Source: UAE government waste management department, 2019)
