Frucor Suntory showcases its commitment to leading positive change in the New Zealand and Australian beverage market with the release of its first sustainability report, Growing for Good.  

The report details the progress the company made in 2020 against its sustainability commitments:

“We believe it’s our social responsibility to have a positive impact on the world around us.   

”Despite the challenges we faced in 2020, we made great progress across almost all areas of our sustainability agenda and implemented a number of projects that are delivering encouraging results.  It’s great to be able to share some of the work we’ve done – and the results we’ve achieved.” 

Ben adds: “This year we have a comprehensive calendar of activities building on the work completed in 2020 – specifically a continued focus on developing opportunities and solutions to the issues of packaging and climate change.  

“This involves a shift towards a circular economy, and ongoing efforts to decarbonise our operations.”
