Danone's Indonesian bottled water unit, Danone-Aqua, has pledged to recover more plastic than it uses by 2025 as part of a new sustainability drive.

The promise is one of a number of environmental pledges from the unit yesterday, including commitments to consumer education and to use at least 50% recycled plastic in bottles by 2025. Danone-Aqua said the campaign will help foster a "new culture" of recycling and environmental responsibility in Indonesia amid moves to reduce plastic waste. The Indonesian government recently pledged to cut plastic waste going to the ocean by 70% by 2025.

"More than half of our PET bottles are already being collected and recycled into new bottles or other materials, like textiles," said Danone-Aqua head Corine Tap. "We have decided the time is right to invest further and to do more."

A number of beverage companies have launched sustainability drives in the wake of increased consumer concern over the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the sea. In January, Danone said it wanted to create a "circular approach" to the use of plastic in its Evian brand as it announced plans to make all of its bottles out of recycled material.

In the same month, The Coca-Cola Co unveiled its World Without Waste initiative, set to run throughout the Coca-Cola system.
