ESG report


We recognize our responsibility to help solve the global plastic waste crisis. World Without Waste, our ambitious sustainable packaging initiative, aims to create systemic change through a circular economy for our packaging alongside our bottling partners. The World Without Waste strategy has signaled a renewed focus on our entire packaging lifecycle—from how bottles and cans are designed and produced to how they’re recycled and repurposed—through a focus on three fundamental areas: design, collect and partner. 

Make 100% of our packaging recyclable globally by 2025. Use at least 50% recycled material in our packaging by 2030.

"If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we cannot act alone. The crisis has shone a light on the interconnected nature of our world. The lessons we learn must be applied to help us emerge stronger… to get to a more sustainable and inclusive economic future."

-James Quincey, Chairman and CEO
