2010 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT REPORT IN ESSENCE 2Last year I reported on the adoption of the Live Positively platform at Swire Beverages to capture our on-going commitments to making our business more sustainable in the marketplace where we compete, the communities where we live, the workplace where we collaborate and in the global environment where we are committed to make a positive difference. During 2010, we embarked upon an extensive communications project with our staff to broadly communicate the seven pillars of Live Positively Œ the sustainability platform that we share with the Coca-Cola system. These pillars will provide the framework for this year™s report, which will go into details about the metrics by which we track our progress and measure our impact in these areas. The Live Positively commitments require a strong focus on continuous improvement in our production, distribution and packaging of an ever-broadening portfolio of beverages. To identify and rapidly adopt best practices for achieving this continuous improvement requires the support of our 18,000 staff in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan and the USA Œ hence the heightened emphasis on staff communications in 2010. Our staff can be our best ambassadors in promoting the benefits of our beverages, encouraging active healthy lifestyles amongst ourselves and within our communities, the efficient usage of natural resources in the manufacturing of our beverages and the adoption of safe working practices Œ to help look after a colleague when one may forget to look after himself. We were very proud to open our most environmental friendly plant in Luohe, Henan province of Mainland China in late 2010. Luohe sets a new benchmark for our environmental standards but we are planning to lift this benchmark for our next plant opening!During 2010, we were the first bottler in Mainland China to adopt the government-sanctioned use of 10% recycled PET (rPET). In the USA, we launched the PlantBottleŽ, which is made up to 30% plant-based materials, for several of our major brands. Significant advances were made in lightweighting PET bottles with a ground-breaking fiTwistfl bottle launched in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan supported by extensive consumer communications to explain the benefits of the fiTwistfl on reducing the volume of waste entering landfills and reduction of the product™s carbon footprint by 35% compared with the former bottle. The impact of the various initiatives is captured in the Performance Highlights Œ clearly we have room to improve and we are conscious that our safety performance in particular requires heightened attention. We are making progress but there is no room for complacency and the visibility of our Live Positively commitments will ensure that we remain focused on continuous improvement. Challenges AheadRoad safety in and outside our plants remains a top priority with a number of our plants reporting high road accident rates, we also regrettably had one fatality in Xiamen in 2010. As such, we are taking a fresh look at managing safety and will be rolling out a Safety Roadmap after further study of root causes and gap analyses, targeting areas of greatest concern. The introduction of the PlantBottleŽ was exciting and a true innovation, though the costs associated with this material make it a lot more expensive than traditional PET. Additionally, closed-loop rPET in Mainland China is far from reaching critical mass and has limited points of production. Both these attempts to reduce the carbon impact of our PET packaging will continue to receive attention. We would also like to install more CO ² coolers however they are more expensive than other models and create new challenges for servicing across our territories so we have not been able to scale up their installation in a manner that is economically viable at the moment. Feedback on how we are seen to be performing is, as always, keenly sought!Geoff Cundle Managing Director Swire Beverages Limited Managing Director™s Message
