Packaging is essential to bringing water and its health benefits to people, and this needs to be done in the most responsible way. Plastic pollution is an important issue. The system for plastic packaging needs to evolve and we want to be a part of the solution. We are working with experts to invest in the circular economy of packaging, keeping bottles in the loop and out of nature so that plastic can be recycled and reused.
In the UK & Ireland, our evian, Volvic and Harrogate bottles are recyclable. We're also working to increase the amount of recycled plastic in our bottles. For example, in 2020 we were proud to launch 100% recycled plastic bottles* across our top selling evian formats.

At Danone UK & Ireland, we're working to reduce our GHG emissions as part of our climate journey.
In 2020, our evian and Volvic brands were both certified carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust. This was achieved by:
- evian continuously measuring and reducing carbon emissions at each stage of their bottle’s life cycle: from the materials used, to production, transportation and recycling.
- Volvic actions included switching to 100% renewable energy at their natural mineral water bottling site, evolving their packaging, using lower carbon transport alternatives and protecting natural ecosystems through their partnership with South Pole.
