The path to 100% recycled plastic for Coca-Cola

This week: Joe Franses, vice-president for sustainability at Coca-Cola European Partners, discusses how the brand will achieve its goals of 100% recycled or renewable materials in all of its plastic bottles. He talks about the economic challenges in recycled materials costs versus virgin feedstock when oil prices are so low, and argues that the sector must look beyond this to real circularity in its supply chain.  
Plus: ahead of the sustainable landscapes and commodities conference, a chance to hear again panellists reflecting on some key points at the 2019 event, featuring: Justin Adams, Tropical Forest Alliance, Laurence Ruffieux, Philip Morris International; Nic Sheen, Athenticate; Helen Browning, Soil Association; Michael Gidney, Fairtrade Foundation; Frances Way, CDP; Stephen Donofrio, Forest Trends; Jonathan Horrell, Mondelez International; Peter Stanbury, Frontier Practice; and, Tom Idle, Narrative Matters.
