Coca-Cola has announced a new packaging vision ‘World Without Waste’, which includes the goal to help collect and recycle the equivalent of 100% of the packaging it sells globally by 2030. The plan is to back this vision with a multi-year investment, helping to progress ongoing work to make its packaging 100% recyclable.

The statement includes the following commitments: 

  • “Invest in our planet: By 2030, for every bottle or can the Coca-Cola system sells globally, we aim to help take one back so it has more than one life. We are investing our marketing dollars and skills behind this 100% collection goal to help people understand what, how, and where to recycle. We will support collection of packaging across the industry, including bottles and cans from other companies. The Coca-Cola system will work with local communities, industry partners, our customers, and consumers to help address issues like packaging litter and marine debris.
  • Invest in our packaging: To achieve our collection goal, The Coca-Cola Company is continuing to work toward making all of our packaging 100% recyclable globally. The Company is building better bottles, whether through more recycled content, by developing plant-based resins, or by reducing the amount of plastic in each container. By 2030, the Coca-Cola system also aims to make bottles with an average of 50% recycled content. The goal is to set a new global standard for beverage packaging. Currently, the majority of the Company’s packaging is recyclable.”
