The environmental results obtained by General Beverage are mainly related to prevention of packaging waste (- 99%) resulting from the consumption of water and beverages (especially PET bottles and cans), and to the reduction of the environmental impact of transport.
Only with regard to the service freebeverage®, the results in the last year, achieved thanks to the application of our services for the distribution of more than 110 million meals, can be summarised as follows:
- 4,255 tons waste from packaging
- 176,000 tons of goods transported
- 7,000 tonnes of CO2
- 5,450 tons of oil
In addition to the freebeverage service, we pay particular attention to waste prevention and transport in all our services: for example, the io pura® service, realized in offices, schools and hospitals, allows to eliminate PET waste from carbonated water bottles; the RistoSano® service requires significantly less packaging than ready made packaged meals (homogenised, ready-made one portion meals and mousses). All our services are characterised by a drastic reduction in transport, packaging and other types of waste.
