Mondelez Kinh Do has announced its commitment towards reducing the environmental impact of packaging and tackling plastic waste.

It will use sustainable material on laminated products and will reduce by 20 per cent packaging materials for any new product development or re-innovation project.

Today, 95 per cent of the company’s total packaging, including both plastic and non-plastic, is recyclable and reusable.

This important milestone contributes greatly to the company’s long-term ambition to leverage its scale to reduce the impact on the environment and its commitment to achieving 100 per cent recyclable packaging labeled with consumer information across its portfolio by 2025.

Mondelez Kinh Do has significantly stepped up its efforts to make sustainable packaging not only available but also apparent to consumers.

Recently, as a member of the Packaging Recycling Organisation Vietnam (PRO Vietnam), a leading initiative focused on driving the circular economy and making recycling more accessible and sustainable, Mondelez Kinh Do took a leading position in on-pack communication for recycling with transparency.

Accordingly, the company has applied the PRO logo on the packaging of its products, including AFC, Cosy, Solite, LU, Oreo chocolate pie, Slide, and all products of Kinh Do Tet as an affirmation of Mondelez Kinh Do’s eco-friendly packaging.

“Reducing the environmental impact of packaging and tackling plastic waste are urgent priorities for us, which we take extremely seriously. This priority is in line with our long-term commitment to preserve the planet and meet consumers' aspirations every day. As a member of PRO Vietnam, Mondelez Kinh Do now can better partner and influence our external stakeholders to drive a circular economy for Viet Nam. The Mondelez Kinh Do team has taken the lead for working on the flexible packaging platform and bring technical know-how as well as the partnership with our peers in a non-competitive way to look for win-win solutions,” said Anand Jakati, Director of Supply Chain, Mondelez Kinh Do Vietnam.

Earlier this month, the company made bold steps to build a more sustainable snacking company with the commitment to a 2050 target of Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions across the full value chain. — VNS
