James Cropper managing director Steve Adams said: “We’re proud that our coffee cup recycling process, CupCycling, has been recognised by the BITC. We believe in helping brands introduce circular design, and we continually innovate to make sure they can do that, without compromising on high quality, beautiful packaging. We have worked tirelessly in collaboration with brands such as Selfridges, Costa and MacDonald’s, as well as waste management companies to create the infrastructure needed for circular design when it comes to coffee cups.
“With 60million coffee cups upcycled into beautiful paper and packaging to date, and the capacity to do the same with 500million cups annually, we’re focussed on scaling our ability to create value from waste.”
The winners of all categories will be announced at the Responsible Business Gala Dinner on 9 July at the Royal Albert Hall.
