We are constantly working on reducing our ecological impact and the amount of packaging we use. New technologies allow us to continuously improve and expand our pioneering role when it comes to sustainability. The introduction of the new KeelClip™ packaging represents another important milestone in this journey.
SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING FOR A WORLD WITHOUT WASTE
KeelClip™ is an innovative packaging solution made from cardboard and is used for cans. The light and practical cardboard solution is 100% recyclable. By using this new packaging, Coca-Cola HBC Switzerland will save 95 tonnes of plastic per year.
In addition, KeelClip™ is made using sustainable cardboard certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ensuring environmentally and socially responsible production. The new cardboard packaging will enable us to reduce our CO2 emissions by 50% compared to plastic packaging.
Even in these uncertain times, we are focusing on developing our commitment to sustainability even further. By offering a sustainable cardboard solution in the form of KeelClip™, we support our customers directly and make a real contribution to reducing the amount of packaging material used.

KEELCLIP™ PACKAGING IS IN STORES NOW
Along with Ireland, Northern Ireland and Austria, Coca-Cola HBC Switzerland is among the first European markets to introduce KeelClip™. KeelClip™ is a new innovation on the Swiss market for non-alcoholic soft drinks. With this new product, we aim to further expand our pioneering role when it comes to sustainability.
The 330-milliliter Coca-Cola multipacks (Original and Zero) are now available with the innovative KeelClip™ packaging at leading retailers, Qwell and other customers. During the next few months, the cardboard packaging solution will also be introduced for further products.
We are very proud to be one of the first markets in Europe to introduce the new KeelClip™ packaging. This change will eliminate a significant amount of packaging from our supply chain, which is very important for us as a company and for the environment that we operate in.
