Aug 31, 2023

TRANSPARENCE gives wine and spirits brands clarity and assurance around sustainability initiatives

New program supports Amcor’s wider sustainability agenda to develop all packaging to be recyclable or reusable by 2025

Colombes, France, 18 July 2023: Amcor Capsules, a global leader in developing and producing responsible closures for wine and spirits, announces today TRANSPARENCE, a new far-reaching sustainability program to support the Wine and Spirits industry.

TRANSPARENCE is a continuous improvement program focused on environmental impact; through which Amcor Capsules will establish clear data-driven objectives and actions to deliver more sustainable closures and capsules. All progress and achievements under this program will be duly verified and certified by independent and expert third parties.

Yannick Magnon, General Manager of Amcor Capsules says, “TRANSPARENCE is a strong commitment that directly supports Wine and Spirits brands and distributors. It is our commitment to continue to offer stronger sustainable solutions in the future, with corresponding environmental impacts and improvements independently verified and certified in the most transparent way. With such a public pledge, we aim to build trust and understanding, and improve standards of sustainability in our industry.”

The TRANSPARENCE sustainability program builds on three strategic pillars – REDUCE, RECYCLE, RESPECT.

REDUCE: Amcor Capsules is committed to reduce its carbon footprint by 18% by FY25, compared to FY20. Key initiatives include:

RECYCLE: In 2018, Amcor Group was the first packaging company to commit to develop all its packaging to be recyclable or reusable by 2025. Today, 96% of Amcor Capsules’ portfolio is already recycle-ready.

RESPECT: Amcor Capsules ensures that respect for the planet shapes its roadmap. All Amcor Capsules Plants* send zero production waste to disposal and are located near historic wine and spirits production areas, ensuring better respect of the transportation chain.

TRANSPARENCE is a live and continuous improvement sustainability program designed to support and benefit Wine and Spirits brands and distributors. It will be delivered in close collaboration with Amcor Capsules’ partners and third parties, and it will be regularly updated with progress, achievements, and new objectives.
