Spanish bottled water producers commit to preventing packaging waste

Published: 02/02/2021

In 2012, the Spanish National Association of Bottled Drinking Water (ANEABE) signed a voluntary commitment called “2015 Naturally” with the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

The main objective was to prevent the generation of packaging waste by: reducing the raw material used in the manufacture of primary and secondary packaging by 10% by the end of 2015; maintaining the best primary packaging ratio of the market in Spain; implementing measures to improve PET packaging recyclability and increasing recycled material in primary and secondary packaging to reach 5% by the end of 2015. The initiative ends in the first trimester of 2016.
