Packaging, reuse and recycling


“In 2012, KOBA Organizacja Odzysku S.A., began cooperating with Kompania Piwowarska on the recovery and recycling of aluminium packs. As a result, and in cooperation with the Eko Serwis (PAPC) Company, we collect and deliver over 28,000 tonnes of aluminium cans for recycling every year. Through our plants at 13 locations in Poland, we are now the country's main collector of aluminium waste.

The aim of our organisation is not only to recover and recycle, but also to build public awareness of environmental issues through competitions, campaigns and training in educational projects. The number of participants in our project is growing: last year over 70,000 people took part in these activities.

Thanks to our cooperation, Kompania Piwowarska not only meets its legal environmental obligations but is also building environmental awareness among its stakeholders. The highest standards, along with the EMAS Environmental Management System which is in place and validated in annual audits, place us and our partners among Poland's top companies in terms of caring for the environment. In recognition of its achievements, the KOBA Company has been nominated for the European EMAS Awards. We continue to implement our educational activities. In cooperation with Kompania Piwowarska.”
