Sustainability Action Plan
Sustainability is essential for any well run business. It supports our business growing and thriving in an ever-changing environment. At Coca-Cola, sustainability has been core to our business for many years. We have made tremendous progress and we believe there is much more to do.
This is Forward
Our sustainability action plan, This is Forward, places sustainability at the very heart of our business strategy. We are determined to create an environment where people take pride in working for us and where we earn trust from our customers, consumers and stakeholders.
Be part of the Great British Spring Clean in association with Coca-Cola!
The Great British Spring Clean is back for 2020 and Coca-Cola is once again a proud supporting partner, helping to fund its delivery across the whole of the UK. The campaign is run by Keep Britain Tidy with the simple aim of bringing people across the country together to clean up the litter in our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
Last year, more than half a million people took part in the Great British Spring Clean, cleaning up 4,308 tonnes of litter from across the country. We hosted 28 clean ups with more than 300 of our colleagues and enabled around 2,100 litter picking hours with the free clean-up kits we sent to our customers.
This year we plan to mobilise even more of our colleagues to take part in litter clean-ups, and continue to encourage our customers, suppliers and partners to get involved as well.
Nick Brown, Head of Sustainability at Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) said: "As part of our This is Forward sustainability action plan, we are passionate in our belief that none of our bottles or cans end up as litter. We want all of them to be recovered and recycled and initiatives like the Great British Spring Clean will help achieve this. We know that many of our independent customers are hubs of their communities with strong relationships with local residents. This makes you ideally placed to bring people together and help organise community clean-ups, taking care of the environment whilst also boosting local pride and community spirit."
Aman Uppal, One Stop Mount Nod, Coventry, said: "I took part in the Great British Spring Clean last year as I felt it was a great way of giving something back to the community. For me, it’s about protecting the planet for future generations. The response from customers was really positive and I’ll be getting involved again this year."
