Alcon Sustainability

Alcon has expanded its partnership with Plastic Bank – an organisation that builds recycling ecosystems in under-developed communities to fight plastic pollution while providing collection members with a path out of poverty. For each ton of plastic introduced in the marketplace, Plastic Bank will collect an equivalent amount of ocean-bound plastic in vulnerable coastal communities.

Alcon’s partnership with Plastic Bank will help more than 330 collection communities globally in 2023. Collection members exchange the plastic they collect for life-improving benefits, such as health insurance, grocery vouchers, and school supplies.

In 2023, Alcon has extended its offset program to include Systane eye drops distributed in Australia, Egypt, France, New Zealand, and United Arab Emirates. This represents 150,856 kg of plastics, equivalent to over 7.5 million plastic bottles, that will be prevented from reaching the ocean this year.
