Sustainable business

At Apollo Kino, we recognize the importance of reducing waste, conserving resources, and minimizing our environmental impact. We understand that the cinema industry, like many others, generates significant amounts of waste and consumes vast resources. Therefore, we have taken proactive measures to integrate circular economy principles into our operations.

We recognize the detrimental impact of single-use plastics on the environment and understand the urgent need to reverse the trend of ever-increasing consumption. To align with the general objectives of waste policy, particularly the prevention of waste generation, we have implemented several measures to significantly reduce our reliance on single-use plastics.

Sustainable Packaging

We are planning to transition to sustainable packaging solutions throughout our cinema premises. This includes using compostable or biodegradable food containers, cups, and utensils in our concession stands and cafes. By opting for eco-friendly packaging alternatives, we aim to minimize the use of traditional single-use plastics and encourage the adoption of more sustainable options.

Plastic-Free Straws and Stirrers

We have completely eliminated the use of plastic straws and stirrers in our cinemas. Instead, we offer biodegradable or reusable alternatives such as paper straws or stainless steel stirrers. This step helps us reduce the consumption of single-use plastics and promotes the adoption of more environmentally friendly options.

Reusable Beverage Containers

In an effort to reduce plastic waste generated by beverage consumption, we encourage our customers to bring their own reusable containers. We provide convenient water fountains and refill stations, allowing patrons to refill their bottles with water or other beverages, thus minimizing the need for single-use plastic bottles.

Recycling Programs

We have established comprehensive recycling programs in our cinemas to ensure the proper disposal and recycling of waste materials. We have prominently placed recycling bins throughout the premises, clearly labeled for different types of recyclables. This enables both our staff and customers to easily separate and recycle items such as paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum, contributing to waste reduction and resource conservation.

Awareness and Education

We believe that raising awareness and educating our employees and customers is crucial in achieving a significant reduction in single-use plastic consumption. We conduct regular training sessions and awareness campaigns to inform our staff about the environmental impact of single-use plastics and encourage them to actively participate in waste reduction efforts. We also provide educational materials and signage within our cinemas, highlighting the importance of reducing plastic waste and offering practical tips for sustainable living.

Collaboration with Suppliers

We work closely with our suppliers to explore alternatives to single-use plastics. We encourage them to provide packaging and product options that are plastic-free or made from recycled materials. By fostering collaborative relationships, we aim to collectively reduce plastic waste and drive the adoption of more sustainable practices across the cinema industry.

At Apollo Kino, our commitment to reducing single-use plastic consumption aligns with the overarching goals of waste policy and waste prevention. We continuously evaluate and update our practices to incorporate the latest advancements in sustainable alternatives and waste management.

Our commitment to the circular economy reflects our dedication to creating a better future for the planet and our communities. We invite you to join us on this journey towards sustainability by choosing us as your preferred cinema destination. Together, we can make a difference and create a world where cinema and corporate responsibility go hand in hand.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you to Apollo Kino soon!
