Drink Without Waste

Paul Zimmerman is a Hong Kong environmentalist, politician and businessman. He is chairing the Single-Use Beverage Packaging Working Group, an alliance of some 50 stakeholders – from manufacturers to green groups – formed to reduce waste from beverage consumption. Its “Drink Without Waste” initiative seeks to recover 70%-90% of PET and liquid carton containers by 2025.

My Sustainability Goals for 2022:

  • Agreement on a Producer Responsibility Scheme for beverage containers in Hong Kong
  • Promote a circular economy where used packaging has a market value that incentivises recovery and re-use
  • Grow the network of water and drink dispensers in support of people bringing their own bottle
