Blog : CCNNE Continues to Make Sustainability a Priority

By Sarah Mahoney | Apr 16, 2015 | in

Here in New Hampshire, Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Northern New England (CCNNE), an independent bottler, ensures they’re doing more than just talking about recycling programs. Through technological modernization of its production lines and a rethinking of how it uses water, the Londonderry Production Center is one of the most sustainable and energy efficient operations. CCNNE’s Londonderry Production Center has won Coca-Cola’s National Quality award 9 times!

Their Dasani plant bottle is made from 30% renewable resources, over 12 million pounds of recycled commodities were sold in 2013, 264 million pounds of cardboard was saved and just under 300,000 oak trees saved by using recycled plastic trays, and have a 93% recycling diversion rate at their manufacturing facility in Londonderry.

“We teach a lot more about sustainability than what students might get at their school. We not only talk about what we recycle but what it turns into.” Ray Dube, CCNNE's Sustainability Manager, pictured above.
