2020-2040 Sustainability Ambitions

Our Sustainability Ambition Continues

Building on the achievements of our ‘2020 Sustainability Goals’, we will focus our action over the next twenty years on four priority areas – water, consumer wellbeing, packaging and carbon reduction – to help deliver on its long-term Value Proposition centred around its customers, people, partners, consumers and the environment.

Our 10 bold sustainability ambitions are designed to make a distinct and positive contribution between now and 2040. They are focused on the areas where we can make the greatest difference.


Amatil’s ‘2020-2040 Sustainability Ambitions’ will be underpinned by a series of roadmaps and performance indicators to provide a pathway to delivery and ensure the ambitions are embedded across the business. The ambitions are also aligned with The Coca-Cola Company’s (TCCC) sustainability priorities and strategies, including TCCC’s Science-Based Target of 25% carbon reduction by 2030 (compared to 2015) and its 2030 World Without Waste program.
