Together with our customers and partners, we are committed to creating a movement aimed at reducing:

  • PET bottles
  • kilograms of plastic
  • CO2 emissions / liter served
  • energy consumption

At Drinkotec, all our solutions (equipment and software) are geared to deliver this mission.

A call to action for a sustainable future

Global plastic production is reaching worrying heights, reaching 400 million tons a year.
Switzerland alone accounts for 790,000 tons of plastic waste per year (from all sources). Currently 80% of this waste is incinerated. Only a small proportion, around 15%, is recycled or reused. [1]

At Drinkotec, we are committed to transforming the way beverages are consumed by placing sustainability at the heart of our mission.
As part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)[2] to create a better future by 2030, our vision is to eliminate plastic at its source, offering innovative solutions for a positive impact on the environment. This manifesto attests to our unwavering dedication to a cleaner, more sustainable future.

It’s time to say stop.

Responsible consumption

SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production[3]

The alarming fact that only 15% of plastic bottles are recycled indicates that the status quo is unacceptable. It’s time to embrace responsible consumption.

Our approach focuses on education and the promotion of responsible behavior. We encourage the adoption of beverage dispensers without single-use containers, creating an environment where beverage consumption is synonymous with sustainability.

Awareness-raising and education

SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities[4]

Drinkotec is intensifying its awareness-raising efforts. We all need to understand the crucial role we play in this crisis.

We are committed to working closely with key players in the environmental protection sector, as well as with local authorities, companies and managers eager to initiate change alongside us.

Together, we can work to create more environmentally-friendly spaces, reducing the impact of plastic waste.

Transparence et responsabilité

We are committed to maintaining full transparency regarding the environmental impact of our products and our progress towards the Zero-PET transition.

Environmental impacts are at the heart of our consciousness, and our solutions bear witness to our determination, such as our NEO distributor, which is 99% renewable, made of wood and aluminum. We believe in it, and we’re already taking action, right down to the design of our machines.

We encourage our partners and customers to take an active part in this process of building a sustainable future.

Join the movement before it’s too late!
