Waste reduction


  • Our Approach To Waste Reduction

Good corporate citizenship is important to us, which is why waste management is high up on the Tiger Brands list of priorities. We have begun exploring opportunities to design and implement inclusive circular economy initiatives. Currently, our circular-economy focus is on driving waste minimisation, and we see this as a springboard for future initiatives that may capture waste streams and by-products, using them as inputs for innovative processes and new products.

Our ambition is to send zero waste to landfills and to build a culture of waste segregation. To achieve these goals, we place an increasing emphasis on the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste generated in our production processes. When all reasonable options have been exhausted to realise this, we ensure that any remaining wastes are disposed of responsibly. We do not produce any hazardous waste.

Tiger Brands supports the strategy of reduce-reuse-recycle when it comes to our packaging principles, and we have begun to prioritise a circular-economy design approach to developing packaging solutions for new products and in the renovation of old ones.

Furthermore, we have introduced packaging initiatives that focus on:

• Reduced primary, secondary and tertiary packaging
• Using recycled plastics where possible
• Carefully investigating the use of biodegradable packaging
• Replacing current non-recyclable substrates with recyclable alternatives
• We support reduce, reuse and recycle packaging principles and the waste hierarchy.

To achieve these goals, we work in partnership with key suppliers and industry bodies.
