Our promise: 60% recycled content* for Orora glass beverage containers by 2025


Our Progress:

  • Cullet Beneficiation Plant construction completed, with full commissioning in August 2022

  • Enables Orora to increase the amount of recycled content in glass packaging manufactured at the site.

  • Utilisation of more recycled glass during packaging production will deliver sustainability benefits, including a reduction in the amount of CO2e emissions (and energy use), in virgin materials deployed to manufacture glass, and diverting waste away from landfill.

  • 38% average recycled content in glass containers produced in FY23, in line with prior year.

*Pre and post-consumer cullet

Sustainable Glass Recycling with Orora Beverage

Glass recycling is an important step within the manufacturing process, where used glass packaging is taken to create new glass products that help create a sustainable circular economy.


Today, glass waste is used to create new glass bottles through the process of beneficiation. Here at Orora we collect recycled glass from container deposit schemes, which is then processed on site at our Glass Beneficiation Plant to create cullet.

We’re committed to addressing climate change

Our promise: Net zero emissions by 2050. 40% reduction in emissions by 2035


Our progress:

  • Orora is committed to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 for Scope 1 & 2*

  • We have an interim goal of 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2035.

  • Our well defined plan to achieve this goal includes: 

  • Increased use of recycled glass cullet to leverage greenhouse gas reducing benefits

  • Implementing less greenhouse gas intensive furnace technology

  • Procuring greenhouse gas-free electricity for our business globally

  • Our pathway between 2035 and 2050 will be firmed up over time and will require advances in technology.

*Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy.

Orora welcomes federal government grant to progress Australian first oxygen fuelled furnace project

In 2022, Orora announced the successful grant application to support the planned construction of an oxygen fuelled furnace at the Orora Glass manufacturing plant in Gawler, South Australia.


This initiative accelerates development and commercialisation of low emissions technologies.
This will assist Orora to meet the growing demand from consumers for recycled and sustainable packaging and support our wine industry customers to be competitive in their export markets.

Site preparations for the oxygen plant upgrade have begun in 2023, and is due for completion in 2025.


We’re working to enrich our communities

Our promise: Prioritising action for our people and our communities


Our progress:

  • Deliver next stage of Stay Safe rules to drive SIF prevention and launch Critical Control checklists. 

  • Deploy further culture shaping workshops across Orora. 

  • Execute action plans arising from the FY23 employee engagement survey



Orora helps share a Coke with the Firies

During the devastating bushfires that occurred in Australia in the summer of 2019-20, the teams at Coca-Cola Amatil (Amatil) and Coca-Cola South Pacific (CCSP) launched special limited-edition cans to celebrate and thank the firefighters and frontline volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the bushfire crisis.


100,000 of these unique cans were produced. The cans were not available for sale but were donated to firefighters, volunteer fire organisations and fire-affected communities.


The ‘Share a Coke with the Firies’ campaign was inspired by the popular ‘Share a Coke’ summer promotion of 2019-20, for which Orora produced over 325 million cans.
