Water Stewardship

Water is a priority for The Coca‑Cola Company because it is essential to life, our beverages and the communities we serve.


The company announced three goals related to the strategy’s key focus areas:


  • Achieve 100% circular water use – or regenerative water use – across 175 facilities identified as “leadership locations” by 2030. 
  • Work with partners to help improve the health of 60 watersheds identified as most critical for the company's operations and agricultural supply chains by 2030. 
  • Aim to return a cumulative total of 2 trillion liters of water to nature and communities globally, between 2021-2030. 
In Our Products

What is in our products is essential. We use the highest quality and cutting-edge ingredients, provide reduced and no sugar alternatives, and source sustainably and ethically.


We are evolving our business strategy to become a total beverage company by giving people more of the drinks they want. This strategy includes changing recipes to reduce added sugar, promoting low and no-calorie beverage options and making smaller packages more available to enable portion control.

Sustainable Agriculture

The quality and integrity of our products depends on a sustainable supply chain with successful and thriving farming communities and ecosystems. 


We believe sustainable agriculture offers solutions to interrelated issues such as human rights, water security, climate resilience, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction and women’s empowerment. We are working with our suppliers and a range of partners to create systemic change in our agricultural supply chain.

Climate Action

We are taking action on climate change.


We have a responsibility to contribute solutions to climate change. See our progress and how we're reducing our emissions, adopting renewable energy sources and more.


Reducing Our Absolute Greenhouse Gas Emissions By 25% By 2030 Through Our Science-Based Target:


Our ambition is to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Through our Science-Based Target, we are continuously evolving our climate change solutions and goals to align with current climate science.


Product Quality & Safety
  • Quality, food safety and regulatory compliance are cornerstones of our dedication to perfect products, trusted everywhere.

The Coca‑Cola Company prides itself on strong global quality and food safety standards. We source and use qualified ingredients, enforce robust supplier requirements and follow all applicable safety regulations issued by regulatory compliance agencies. In short, we expect our beverages to be produced to high standards of quality and with safe manufacturing practices throughout our supply chain.


  • Safeguarding People, Products, Environment

Our commitment to meeting consumer’s trust and their expectations for refreshing, high quality, and safe products using sustainable manufacturing practices is central to The Coca‑Cola Company’s philosophy.We are a world class leader in the products we serve as a result of strong product quality, diligence in standards, continued testing and auditing, and taking a progressive view on innovation and science techniques.


  • Quality Products

Food safety is integral to our gold standard of quality. Our fundamental responsibility is to ensure safety standards for the products we produce and distribute.

Safety and product quality are a fundamental part of our product design, manufacturing and proactive consumer feedback processes. 

Our robust supplier requirements program is intended to ensure quality throughout the supply chain.


  • Safety Of People

Grounded in our purpose to refresh the world and make a difference, we will make and deliver our products and provide services with a goal of zero work-related injuries and illnesses for our employees, contractors and the communities in which we interact. 

We promote a culture of caring and safe behavior, reaching beyond compliance to ensure continuous improvement through hazard identification and implementation of controls to minimize risk.


  • Globally Trusted

Our high standards are set so a quality product can be enjoyed around the world. 

We demand our standards and policies are met for all products we serve.  This includes globally recognized standards, local regulatory needs, and where needed, establishing our own standards to protect consumers.


Sustainable Packaging
  • Eco-friendly packaging solutions for a World Without Waste

The interconnected global challenges of packaging waste and climate change have made this a focus for our business and communities. Our company and our bottling partners are taking a hard look at the packaging we use and how we can drive change.


Our sustainable packaging strategy aims to create systemic change through a circular economy for our packaging - from how bottles and cans are designed and manufactured to how they’re recycled and reused. 


We have a responsibility to help solve the global plastic waste crisis, and we’re leveraging our scale and reach across markets to reach our sustainability goals, suppress waste pollution and reduce our carbon footprint.
