Shakey's is now plastic neutral

Shakey’s Pizza Asia Ventures Inc. now officially plastic-neutral. Shakey’s marked its first year of being “100 percent plastic-neutral” last January 2020. It is the first restaurant chain in the Philippines to hit this milestone.

Shakey’s is the Philippines’ leader in the pizza and full-service restaurant categories. Also among top consumer companies working to minimize the environmental footprint. It set a goal in 2019 to help manage post-consumer waste and push to be plastic-neutral in 2020.

Being plastic-neutral means recovering and recycling an amount of plastic equal to what it uses. The plastic is then converted into alternative fuel, replacing coal used for producing cement. That’s a sustainable and responsible business for you.

“Consumer companies face significant cost and performance challenges in finding more sustainable alternatives to plastic. While co-processing is not the perfect solution, it can mitigate the environmental impact of plastic usage,” said Shakey’s Chairman Christopher Po.

Co-processing is meant to “balance out our environmental effects,” said Chairman Po.

He added, “Our brands represent quality, value-for-money products. We hope that they will eventually stand for responsible consumption as well.”
