Doing business the right way
Our South Africa business is a B-BBEE level 3 contributor.
We’re rethinking how bottles are designed, collected, recycled.
We’re increasing renewable energy usage and reducing carbon emission.
When we grow our business the right way, not just the easy way, we help create inclusive growth opportunities for our communities, women and youth, our customers, our employees and our shareholders, for a better shared future.
CCBSA’s key sustainability areas include waste management, water stewardship, consumer well-being, local sourcing, economic inclusion of women and youth and climate change.
Key Sustainability Areas
World Without Waste
Companies such as Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) are a part of the crusade to curb the growing and unnecessary waste pile in local landfills via multilateral collaborations with local communities, Government, waste management organisations, as well as private stakeholders.
The Coca-Cola Water Stewardship Strategy 2030 is based on the reasoning that water is the primary ingredient for the company but that it should not be used at the detriment of communities’ survival.
We have adopted the pillars of employability, education and entrepreneurship as a framework for its economic inclusion strategy. Our aim is to boost income, provide sustainable earning potential and improve skills and business knowledge for youth, resulting in them accessing other opportunities.
CCBSA has accelerated its preferential procurement transformation plan to shift R3.9 billion weighted procurement spend to black-owned and black women-owned suppliers over three years.
Our ambition is to have
recycled content in our PET bottles by 2025 and 50% by 2030
We aim to source
of our raw materials locally by 2022
In South Africa, we shifted over
procurement spend to black-owned companies
The Coca-Cola system is unveiling the new iconic look of its leading sparkling lemon-lime flavoured soft drink, Sprite, in a clear plastic bottle packaging. The change from a green bottle to an easy to recycle clear bottle is a step towards Coca-Cola’s World Without Waste agenda.
