Waste Management

In 2016, The Coca-Cola Company awarded Zero Waste Certification to our Insurgentes Plant.

Thanks to our robust, comprehensive waste management plan, in 2016 we recycled more than 72 thousand tons of industrial waste from our beverage plants, equivalent to 91.6% of our waste generation and surpassing our goal of recycling 90% of our waste.

This number varies across the rest of Arca Continental’s operations. Tonicorp is an example of best practices in Ecuador, recycling more than 96% of the industrial waste it generates.

We are committed to standardizing our waste-reduction activities and increasing the percent of industrial waste we recycle in our operations.

For example, in Argentina we implemented a technological waste collection and donation campaign, which resulted in computer equipment being refurbished and used by local police departments.
