Sustainably sourcing our ingredients is critical to our business. Every bottle of Coca-Cola, and many of our other products contain agricultural ingredients that start on a farm.
Our ingredients account for one of the largest shares of water that we use, and are the second-largest source of carbon emissions across our value chain. To ensure the long-term availability of our key ingredients, we need to work with our suppliers to improve agricultural practices to protect soil, conserve water, and minimize greenhouse gas emissions. We also have to ensure that our ingredients are grown and harvested in ways that protect working conditions and workplace rights. We’re working alongside The Coca-Cola Company to develop an approach to sustainable agriculture to help ensure that by 2020, we source 100 percent of our key agricultural ingredients sustainably.
