The interconnected global challenges of packaging waste and climate change are a focus for our business and communities. We recognise the world has a packaging problem and together with our bottling partners we have a responsibility to help solve it.

Our global sustainable packaging strategy, ‘World Without Waste’ aims to create systemic change through supporting a circular economy for our packaging in every market where we operate.

We globally launched World Without Waste in 2018​ which centers around three primary goals:

7 out of 10 of our plastic bottles are made from recycled plastic

By using recycled plastic to create new bottles, we are helping close the waste loop and reducing the total volume of virgin plastic used in Australia.

In 2019 Coca‑Cola Australia announced that 7 in 10 plastic bottles produced by Coca‑Cola in Australia, excluding caps and labels, are made from 100% recycled plastic.

How to recycle our bottles

Used and empty plastic bottles aren’t done when you are. We can help prevent them becoming waste by recycling them and helping them have another life.

Sprite green goes clear for recycling

After nearly 60 years in Australia, Sprite’s iconic green plastic bottles switched to clear plastic, making them easier to recycle into new bottles locally.

The switch from green to clear Sprite bottles will increase the likelihood of these bottles being remade into new bottles, meaning that they can have more than one life.

Tackling marine litter together with partners

With some of the most breathtaking coastline in the world, it’s easy to see why Australians and New Zealanders are passionate about the ocean, and deeply concerned about marine debris and other plastic that ends up in it. Right now, our packaging is part of the problem.
