Disciplined Portfolio Growth

As we continue our journey as a total beverage company, building loved brands through disciplined portfolio growth plays an integral role in that journey. Disciplined portfolio growth through a constant focus on innovation, revenue growth management and improved execution – all supported by integrated brand-building. We believe executing and improving upon these initiatives forms the foundation to deliver strong results today and in the years ahead.

Growing While Reducing Our Footprint

We've committed to clear goals on where we strive to be in terms of being water-neutral and more efficient in our use of water, reducing our carbon footprint and reducing packaging waste. We see this as an integral part of the strategy. It's not an adjunct. It's doing things at the same time.



Strategy and Goals

Circular Economy Solves For Zero Waste And Lower Carbon Footprint

We are preparing our system for the future, with a flexible packaging portfolio, as well as building a circular-economy approach to reclaiming and reusing plastic. We believe in a circular economy. Plastic will be a part of it, but we are continuously, relentlessly innovating in packaging, and we try to anticipate where the consumer is going. We think the future of packaging means more choice in the portfolio, not one "best" bottle.

Growth vs Environmental Improvement

Delivering On Our Sustainability Commitments

We have increased confidence in our ability to achieve our goals around plastics based on the progress we’ve made across other areas of the business. While our business has growth, our environmental impact in terms of water usage, carbon ratio, and sugar has reduced.

Creating Value for Customers Big and Small

We’ll bring brands and programs that become key parts of our customers’ growth agendas, delivered with best-in-class execution. We’ll engage them in joint efforts for a more sustainable future.

For example, we’re strengthening our competitive advantage by making better, more informed decisions, and we’re making them faster… translating data into insights, and insights into actions. These insights equip our customers with a new view on how to create value in the beverage category. This kind of collaboration helps drive results, making the Coca-Cola system the largest driver of incremental retail value growth globally across the CPG space.

Acting With A Growth Mindset

We nurture a culture with a passion to refresh the world. We make a difference. This includes inspiring and supporting the growth of our people, service to our communities and constantly shaping a more sustainable business. We embrace a growth mindset and believe in continuous learning to improve our business and ourselves. We value how we work as much as what we achieve. Acting with a growth mindset is the part of our culture that is most needed to create the future. This is an expansive approach to what’s possible and the essential animating force to building a better future. The behaviors we focus on using every day are being:



icon

Empowered

We take accountability, and we take action. It’s not a free-for-all – we need consideration and prioritization. But it’s a bias for feeling empowered and doing.

icon

Inclusive

We have an incredibly diverse network of employees, partners and operating environments around the globe. We’ll draw on this talent and experience to improve our ideas. The crucible of creativity is marrying individual thought with great team interactions.

icon

Agile

In a fast-moving, omni-everything world, most of what we do should prioritize learning fast and taking a more iterative, real-world-tested approach (a.k.a., version 1.0, 2.0, 3.0).

icon

Curious

This is the starting point, whether it’s about the consumer or customers or a partner in our system, or even the world around us. It’s exploring, understanding, connecting, imagining, wondering about how it could be better or different. It connects to our heritage of believing, as Robert Woodruff once said, that “the future belongs to the discontented.”



Although we have much room to improve, we are seeing positive signs of the cultural transformation taking hold based on the latest employee engagement survery:
