Carlsberg goes back to using plastic

This morning, as I am in Copenhagen, I was watching the Danish news and I saw this: “Carlsberg goes back to using plastic”. Apparently, Carlsberg has been involved in research and test on moving away from plastic packaging which would eliminate 150 ton of plastics per year in Denmark alone. However, the users have not caught on - so Carlsberg will now go back to using plastic. This can not be in line with ambitious climate targets? The end product is beer and how it is distributed, in a future proof and climate friendly way, can not be up to the end consumers to decide. So Carlsberg - what can you do to convince your customers that this is the way to go? And how much CO2 emissions would you add by going back to plastic? This does not sound like a future move.

Do you agree?

        Instead, they should explore other alternatives and avoid plastic usage.

              But why? After all these years of investments, what could possibly make them give up alternatives and go full-on plastics?
