Circular and resource-efficient food chain

  • Packaging

Coca-Cola’s global goal is to collect and recycle a bottle or can for each one it sells by 2030​ so they don’t become waste.

Coca-Cola plans to reduce the amount of virgin plastic derived from non-renewable sources by a cumulative 3 million metric tons over the next five years globally. Depending on business growth, it projects that it will use approximately 20% less virgin plastic globally by 2025.

  • Water

Responsible water management is a top business priority for Coca-Cola. The company has set a new water strategy to increase water security for its business, communities and nature. This strategy maintains its commitment for at least 100% global replenishment of direct water use and outlines new goals: achieving 100% regenerative water use in bottling operations in water-stressed regions and 100% advanced water management practices for ingredients grown in water-stressed regions.
