Making plastic cups 100% circular

Heineken International has a strong commitment to reduce waste and enhance the circularity of their plastic cups. Their objective was to bring together a diverse group of over 20 experts and stakeholders to collaboratively create a unified visitor journey for all markets and generate a multitude of ideas. Participants came from countries as Mexico, Netherlands, Brasil, Belgium and Portugal; each with it's own challenges to make plastic use circular.

The solution: a 4-day design sprint

Limelights facilitated a dynamic and intensive 4-day design sprint to address their challenge. The design sprint involved cross-functional teams working together to create a comprehensive visitor journey and co-create over 250 ideas. Through a rigorous filtering process we selected 13 significant ideas which were distilled into 5 actionable pilot plans.

The results: accelerating sustainability

The design sprint not only delivered concrete actions but also fostered a culture of collaboration, empowering diverse teams to contribute their expertise and insights. By creating a unified visitor journey, the company can streamline their approach across markets, ensuring consistent and impactful experiences.
