who are the world’s worst offenders for plastic packaging production and pollution?
The report names Coca-Cola as the company with the biggest plastic footprint on the planet with 2.9 million metric tonnes of plastic packaging produced per year.
Its biggest competitor, Pepsico comes second with 2.3 million metric tonnes while Nestlé is the third-worst offender with 1.7 million metric tonnes of plastic packaging produced.
Five of the eight companies with the biggest plastic footprint are American with Nestlé (Switzerland), Danone (France) and Unilever (United Kingdom/Netherlands) the exceptions.
The report only focused on companies that actually report levels of plastic packaging produced with Mondelēz and Perfetti Van Melle notably absent from that list.
