We encourage increased recycling, engage in numerous campaigns to promote its value as well as to support the circular economy. By focusing on schools, universities, and communities, we hope to encourage awareness among children and youth, and demonstrate how PET can be recycled, and that recycling PET can protect the environment, reduce energy use, and create jobs. We also aim to be a business that enables increased collaborations and partnerships across borders in order to drive collective social and environmental impacts at scale. We play a leading role in environmental responsibility and protection through a recycling. Meanwhile, we take action to combat climate change by using more renewable energy, increasing innovation and production of low-carbon products, and reducing GHG.

The basic premise of education lies in its ability to provide relevant and effective learning outcomes for productive employment and decent work across our value chain. We implement hiring and training programs that focus on universities, vocational education for women, youth, and marginalized persons in our communities, with a special focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to ensure they have access and can become future employees, and to create meaningful jobs contributing to good health and well-being. For recycling education, we hope to increase awareness about the benefits of separating waste, the importance of recycling and convincing people to join this effort and reducing waste to landfill.
