To realise the 2020-2040 sustainability ambitions, Coca-Cola Europaciﬁc Partners Indonesia (CCEP Indonesia) encourages optimising waste recycling at the lowest level (household). This action is based on the belief that changes in mindset, and habits, down to the system structure at the most basic level, are urgently needed to overcome the waste problem. In addition, climate change prevention can be realised through business activities or green businesses by the community so that they can contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
