Better Environment

By striving to meet our commitments on packaging, water, energy and carbon reduction, we aim to leave a positive legacy and ensure minimal impact on the environment.

Our commitment

Our focus is on those areas where we have the most opportunity to make a difference: sustainable packaging, water stewardship, energy management, climate protection and resilience, and caring for nature.

We have set public environment goals that we aim to achieve by the end of 2020. These include:

  • improving water intensity for non-alcoholic beverages to no more than 1.95L/L and improving water intensity for alcoholic beverages by 25 per cent (compared to 2013)
  • delivering a 25 per cent carbon reduction for the ‘drink in your hand’
  • ensuring that 60 per cent of our energy requirements come from renewable and low-carbon sources
  • developing a business case for 50 per cent recycled plastic in PET containers in Australia
  • ensuring 80 per cent of spend with suppliers is covered by responsible sourcing assessments.
  • In Australia, we support the country’s 2025 National Packaging Targets; in New Zealand, the Ministry for the Environment’s Plastic Packaging Declaration; and in Indonesia, the work of the Global Plastics Action Partnership.

We’re also committed – in partnership with The Coca-Cola Company – to replenish 100 per cent of the water in finished products and share The Coca-Cola Company’s vision for a ‘World Without Waste’ which includes an ambition to collect and recycle the equivalent of every bottle or can we sell by 2030. In 2019 The Coca-Cola Company also made a worldwide commitment, aligned with the Science Based Targets Initiative, to reduce its carbon footprint by 25 per cent by 2030, compared to 2015. Coca-Cola Amatil’s emissions fall within the scope of this global goal.
