Creating Shared Opportunity: Coca-Cola 2018 Business & Sustainability Report

Sustainability has remained at the core of our Coca-Cola business for decades, and each year they maintain our commitment to monitoring and evaluating their progress in integrating sustainability into all they do. It gives us great pleasure to share with you our 2018 Business & Sustainability Report – their first-ever combined global report covering both business and sustainability.      

You’ll find updates on their continued transformation and the evolution of their beverage portfolio, driven by global innovation and sugar reduction efforts. Equally importantly, you’ll find updates on their efforts to create a World Without Waste, use water responsibly and create shared opportunity through growth for communities around the world.

“Over this period in Europe we have taken several important steps to address some of the urgent societal challenges that together we face. This includes furthering our commitments to ensure more sustainable packaging as a company and as industry; and participating in strong cross-sector partnerships to support the circular economy. We also support voluntary pledges for added sugar reduction in our beverages both within the EU as well as at country level. While we are pleased with progress being made, we recognize the critical importance of remaining focused and accelerating our actions”.

Inside the report you will find details on several concrete goals were set for their busines:

“Every day, we work together with our bottling partners to build upon and strengthen our efforts to create a positive impact, and measuring, tracking and sharing progress against our goals is a valuable opportunity to reflect on this ongoing journey. We’ll continue to work closely with all stakeholders as we evaluate how we can do more, better and faster. It’s how we hold ourselves accountable to the communities we have called home in Europe for more than a century”.


Across the globe and around the clock,
we never stop working to give people
the drinks they want and to improve
the world we all share.
We turn our passion for consumers into the brands people love, and create shared opportunity through growth.
That’s the essence of our transformation.
