O A Aiming for Zero Waste Sustainability Review (continued) Drop the C - reducing CO2 emissions (continued) -it-- r 2 1% p Introduction Report of the Executive Board Report of the Supervisory Board Zero Waste We aim to fully recycle all residual products in our production facilities. In 2018, 102 of our 163 production units sent Zero11 Waste to landfill (2017: 97). This means that for these sites waste was recycled into feed, material loops, compost or used for energy recovery. Brewer's spent grains and yeast, for example, have a high nutrition value and are recycled for animal or human consumption. Another example is bio-sludge from wastewater, which can be used for compost and soil improvement. Plastic Although plastic represents only a relatively small share of HEINEKEN's packaging, we are working on a comprehensive strategy to manage the impacts of plastic packaging. We are in a dialogue with the packaging industry to set clear design and production rules for recycling to create a circular system for plastic packaging. We are increasing the recycled content of PET bottles, reducing our use of plastic in secondary packaging and increasing its recycled content. Looking ahead We will continue to roll out our Zero Waste programme to other sites. We are working with stakeholders (local governments, recycling facilities, retailers, etc.) to help facilitate plastic collection systems and increase the recycling of plastic packaging.
