Scottish brewer Tennent’s has pledged to eradicate single-use plastics from its packaging by 2021 and to become carbon-neutral by 2025 – commitments it is backing with a €16m investment package.
On the packaging commitment, a proportion of the funding will be used to remove shrink wrap and hi-cone rings from can multipacks, replacing them with cardboard alternatives. C&C-owned Tennent’s claims these changes will reduce its annual plastics output by 150 tonnes and mean that its packaging portfolio becomes free from all single-use plastics.
