Our Approach

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines provide a globally recognized framework for companies to measure and communicate their environmental, economic, social and governance performance. We prepared our report in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. This is the seventh consecutive year that these reporting principles have informed our reporting process, and we assess our progress against these guidelines.

In this report, the GRI General Standard Disclosures are solely for The Coca-Cola Company. In the GRI Index, we clarify which Specific Standard Disclosures are reported for our Company. The GRI Index includes disclosures on our company profile, economic performance, environmental performance, labor practices, human rights, impacts on society and product responsibility. In addition to reporting on performance indicators required by the GRI, we report on additional indicators important to our broad range of stakeholders. We review these additional indicators regularly, and aim to be as responsive as possible to our stakeholders’ feedback.

It meets the requirements of the United Nations Global Compact Communication on Progress.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The Coca-Cola Company sees the value meeting the Sustainable Development Goals will bring to the world, business, and most importantly, to those afflicted by poverty. We are committed to supporting meaningful programs and partnerships that help communities achieve these necessary goals, building a better world for 2030 and beyond.
