Environment


We work to leave a positive legacy and ensure minimal impact on the environment, working responsibly in all we do.  We focus on the areas where we know we can make a difference:


Water - water stewardship, efficiency and replenishment,

Energy & Climate - energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy security, carbon footprint, climate resilience,

Sustainable Packaging - recycled content, recyclable materials and resource recovery,

Biodiversity - impacts of products, habitats protected or restored including areas of high biodiversity,

Responsible Sourcing - supplier guidelines and screening,

Solar Powered Coolpacs, Australia

A small team of innovative Coca-Cola Amatil employees at the Mentone distribution centre developed a solar-powered coolpac featuring in-built solar panels, inverter and voltage regulator to help keep chilled products cool throughout their delivery.

Hutan Asuh Forest, Indonesia

Our Indonesian business supports a community farming organisation in East Java in planting a variety of crop trees on 45.5 hectares at Sumberejo Arjuna Mountain.  The program encourages local employment and financial independence, and protects the biodiversity of land which is part of the water catchment area for the Coca-Cola Amatil Surabaya production facility.

Dynapack Ecovadis Journey

Coca-Cola Amatil works with independent third-party Ecovadis to measure supplier performance against our Responsible Sourcing Guidelines. In 2016, bottle closure supplier Dynapack Asia undertook the Ecovadis survey for the first time and then completed it again in the same year.  In the intervening months Ecovadis implemented initiatives to bring their score from 26 out of 100 to 50 – a Silver level, and are aiming for Gold in 2018.
