Innovation in consumer relationships with packaging are a necessary next step

Joe Franses, vice-president, sustainability, for Coca-Cola European Partners, and Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh discuss why Coke has developed a ‘world without waste’ strategy and debate the pros and cons of deposit return schemes.

Coke wants 100% of its packaging to be returned by 2025 – which means, for example, collecting a bottle for every one that is put on the market. So radical chance is required, and Franses explains how Coca-Cola is leveraging the power of its brand to demonstrate the value in its packaging, and why his marketing colleagues now have recycling messages in advertising.
