Drink Without Waste


Paul Zimmerman is a Hong Kong environmentalist, politician and businessman. He leads “Drink Without Waste”, a charitable organisation which actively supports government’s plans to introduce a bill into the LegCo for a new producer responsibility scheme on beverage containers including liquid cartons and PET bottles. The organisation is supported and advised by the Single-Use Beverage Packaging Working Group, an alliance of some 50 stakeholders – from manufacturers to green groups.


My Sustainability Goals for 2023:

  • Successful introduction of 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
