As part of our journey to a more circular packaging model, evian is committed to 100% recycled plastic (rPET) by 2025. When an evian bottle is made from 100% rPET*, it reduces our carbon footprint by up to 50%.**
Globally, our evian bottles are made from an average of 43% recycled plastic* and in the UK, 58% of the plastic we use for our bottles is recycled plastic*. This is one factor that contributed to evian achieving carbon neutrality in April 2020, as part of this certification we have a commitment to year on year emissions reduction.

** compared to bottles made from virgin plastic
In January 2018 we pledged to make our bottles from 100% recycled plastic by 2025. Our plastic bottles are already 100% recyclable, but this target means they will also be made from 100% recycled plastic - so no virgin plastic is added into the economy.
2020 saw us embark on this journey with the launch of two bottle ranges made of 100% recycled plastic*, but we still have a way to go. It’s a bold ambition. We’re committed to being more transparent than ever about our water and what it takes to bottle it, so we want to be truthful and honest in allowing you to track our progress.
This dashboard provides crucial figures in our fight for a more sustainable future. Check back to see how we do in the coming months and years, as we commit to using no new plastic in our bottles by 2025.
