Diageo, whose top global brands include Guinness, Baileys, Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff, has set targets to ensure all its packaging is recyclable by 2020.

"Around 90% of Diageo’s packaging (by weight) is currently made from glass. However, it is increasing the use of alternative materials and formats (and particularly those suited to smaller sized packages), such as PET bottles, plastic closures, Tetra Pak cartons, multilayer pouches, sachets and other small formats all use plastics, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polypropylene (PP)."
