Farsons Group and GSD Marketing Ltd are the latest major organisations to join GreenPak Cooperative Society, Malta’s largest waste recycling scheme.

As part of their environmental commitment to operate at the most sustainable level, the two largest beverage firms in Malta are now using GreenPak’s waste recovery systems which already provide services to over 70 per cent of Malta’s population. Working for many years in close association with the Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry, GreenPak’s cooperative provides an open, transparent and trustworthy setup.

“At Farsons Group we have long been sensitive to our responsibilities in relation to the environment and have invested in a number of related measures and work practices over the years,” said Farsons Group Chief Executive Norman Aquilina. “Joining GreenPak is just another step in this direction. We acknowledge the increased focus on the circular economy and the impact commercial activity in general has on the environment, and we will continue to maintain a responsible approach and focus on the basic but critical principals – re-use, recycle and recover – in all areas of our operations. We shall be working hand-in-hand with GreenPak to further improve on our obligation of recovering the majority of the equivalent tonnage of packaging waste generated by our commercial activity.”

GSD Marketing’s Chief Operating Officer Maria Micallef said: “GSD Marketing honours its sustainability obligations through an extensive waste separation programme, while endeavouring to continuously improve its environmental performance through its ISO14000 certification. While we comply with regulations stipulated at EU and local legislation, as well as by The Coca-Cola Company’s waste compliance requirements, joining GreenPak is the latest in a series of sustainability actions taken by the company. We have set ourselves environmental targets, promoting proper waste separation among our staff to increase our recycling rates and reduce waste ending up in landfills.”

Engaging in public awareness campaigns, selective waste collection education and anti-littering campaigns, GreenPak provides effective education and awareness to more than seven out of ten consumers in Malta.
