This takes it from the growing of ingredients and sourcing materials all the way to the way consumers dispose of their empty cans and bottles. Two particular areas of focus are: - Packaging: Responsible for 30% and 70% of the product's carbon footprint - Refrigeration: 70% of the energy needed to make and supply drinks comes from refrigerating drinks at the point of sale It is worth noting that environmental targets (water, energy and sustainable agriculture) are considered to be a "Tier 2" issue, between Nutrition, the most important and "Tier 3", marketing, packaging and governance. Targets & Performance: To reduce overall emissions Coca-Cola has singled out: refrigeration, manufacturing and distribution. - Total energy use: 2008 - 222,854,737kWh - Carbon emissions: 2007 - 504,000 tonnes - Target: In their commitment 2020 goals the company aim to cut CO2 emissions by 15% from its 2007 level. - Lighting and cooling: In 2009 Coca-Cola installed energy efficient LED lights in 18,000 coolers and vending machines and installed an energy management system in 5,000 coolers. A further 10% will be fitted during 2010. - Packaging: The company used a total of 196,636 tonnes of packaging in 2008 (down from 204,537 in 2007). - Recycling: 97% of manufacturing waste was recycled in 2008. 3% went to landfill. - Target: Coca-Cola is aiming to raise the recycled content of PET bottles to 25% across Europe by the end of 2012. - Water: 3.6bn litres of water used in 2008 in Great Britain. Spotlight – CSR Project: Recycle Zone In 2008 Coca-Cola launched Recycle Zone, the UK's first branded on-the-go recycling scheme. Recycle Zones give consumers a set of bins to put their empty bottles and cans in when they are out and about, where they will be collected for recycling. Working with WRAP, they have a three-year plan to create 80 Recycle Zones in busy locations around the UK by 2011. At the time of the 2009 CSR report, the company had some 21 live Recycle Zones in theme parks, shopping centres, university campuses, hospitals and travel hubs around the country. To date Zones have collected about 17 tonnes of material for recycling.
