Coca-Cola's global greenhouse gas emissions 2010-2019

Coca-Cola’s global manufacturing sites released approximately 5.56 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2019. The beverage giant’s manufacturing emissions have seen little variation in the past decade, peaking in 2015 at 5.58 million metric tons.

Plastic waste and emissions

  The Coca-Cola Company is one of the worst offenders for plastic pollution, producing approximately three million metric tons of plastic packaging annually around the world. A huge amount of this waste is generated in Mexico - the country that consumes the most Coca-Cola. Mismanaged plastic waste is often burned in open dumps in developing nations because waste management infrastructure is lacking. The annual emissions from mismanaged plastic waste created by Coca-Cola is estimated to be 2.5 million metric tons across just six nations (China, Brazil, India, The Philippines, Mexico, and Nigeria). This is considerably higher than its rival PepsiCo.

Coca-Cola sustainability goals

  In a bid to address its climate impact, Coca-Cola set a target in 2013 of reducing the emissions of its end-to-end value chain by 25 percent by the end of 2020 (compared to the 2010 baseline). In 2019, it had cut its carbon footprint by 24 percent towards this target. To address its monumental waste impact, Coca-Cola also set a target of using 50 percent recycled content in all its packaging by 2030.
