We are committed to a World Without Waste
The Coca-Cola company has made a major global commitment to a World Without Waste. By 2025, all our packaging will be 100% recyclable. By 2030 we aim to be using at least 50% recycled material in our packaging. And by 2025 we aim to collect and recycle a bottle for every one that we sell.
Our progress in 2020
550K Dollars invested in CSR programs
$88K Invested in waste segregation bins
850 Segregation bins in 120 schools & communities
$25K Invested in R&D of local recycling initiatives
400T Plastic waste collected & recycled
We are the first Cambodian manufacturer to launch a beverage bottle made from 100% recycled plastic! We recycle our sugar bags as ‘bags for life’ which we supply to supermarkets to discourage single-use plastic. Coca-Cola scientists around the world are researching new recyclable packaging materials to help us build a World Without Waste.
Partnership for a better shared future
We are building and funding partnerships with government, businesses and communities to grow Cambodia’s circular economy to reduce waste and protect the Kingdom’s unique natural heritage.

Collect & Recycle
By collecting and recycling the equivalent of 100% of the packaging we produce we can give each package we sell more than one life.
To help fix our waste problem and give a second life to recyclable materials we are:
- Improving collection by placing 850 waste containers in 120 schools & communities across the kingdom
- Raising public awareness of waste segregation
- Launching #Buy Back Plastic Wrap program connecting local recyclers with retailers
- Expanding waste collection capacity across the country to recycle 400 tonnes of waste that would otherwise have gone to landfill
- Supporting Cambodia’s circular economy by supporting development of local recycling infrastructure and capacity
GOODBYE, SINGLE USE – HELLO, CIRCULAR
Unlike a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose), a circular economy extracts the maximum value from materials and products while in use, then recovers and regenerates them.
