Nestlé and Tetra Pak’s 10-Year Partnership Drives Malaysia’s Circular Economy

Nestlé Malaysia and Tetra Pak celebrated their over 10-year partnership through the CAREton Project to promote a circular economy in Malaysia.

The initiative involves Nestlé Malaysia, Tetra Pak, and local councils collaborating to collect and recycle used beverage cartons. Since 2012, the project has collected over 4,000 tonnes of used beverage cartons, which have been recycled into materials for building homes for Orang Asli communities.

The project has expanded to include more local councils and collection points, making it easier for Malaysians to recycle their used beverage cartons and contribute to a circular economy.

Nga Kor Ming, Minister of Local Government Development

Nga Kor Ming, Minister of Local Government Development said, “Hari Kitar Semula Negara is a day for us to acknowledge the importance of recycling and reflect on the actions we can collectively take to protect our mother earth. The CAREton Project is a great example of how the private sector can spearhead sustainability initiatives and collaborate with the Government to make a real difference.”

On the other hand, Michael Wu, Managing Director of Tetra Pak Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia, says developing a sustainable recycling program is not the responsibility of a single entity; rather, it’s a collaborative effort that requires active participation from everyone in the recycling value chain.

“Tetra Pak and Nestlé Malaysia are committed to making sustainability our business priority and working collaboratively to create a more sustainable future for Malaysia. We encourage all Malaysians to participate in the CAREton Project and recycle their used beverage cartons to contribute to a circular economy,” he says.
