Is Cointreau committed to causes or CSR?
We do care, and share, your concerns about the impact of packaging on the environment. It is in the DNA of Rémy Cointreau to care about the environment and about people. If challenge our consumption and production behaviours is a duty, taking action is a priority.
Christmas boxes are produced in very few quantities, and in rare markets. As we speak today, more than 15 million of Cointreau’s bottles have been produced this year in Angers, the nest of Cointreau. Each are made with 80% of recycled glass and naked of any packaging. Given their niche production – less than 3% - the Christmas gift pack represents a very small part of our CO2 emission that we are fighting through various initiatives. With Time, Human and Terroir being the pillars of the Rémy Cointreau group, we are committed to find long-term sustainable solutions and behaviours.
Here are some examples of our actions :
- Recycling : As mentioned, 80% of the iconic Cointreau bottle is made of recycled glass when 100% of Angers’ waste is recycled. Still in Angers, we limit our energy consumption by using only green energy.
- Packaging: Produce more and more eco-friendly packaging by monitoring their life cycle environmental impact, with CO2 emission, water consumption, and aquatic ecotoxicity in the spotlight.
- Plastic usage: Reduce our plastic footprint by replacing this fabric as much as possible.
- Soils: Invest in research to ensure sustainable agricultural methods for our precious oranges and terroir soils.
These are of course only a few examples of our ambitious Corporate Social Responsibility plan. If you wish to have a better understanding of our various actions, we invite you to consult our detailed CSR Report by clicking https://www.remy-cointreau.com/en/csr/
