What is Coca‑Cola's approach to water use and conservation?

At Coca‑Cola, we have a responsibility to use water as respectfully and efficiently as possible. We put water protection plans in place so our presence doesn't harm communities' vital water resources.

We return 100% of the water we use around the world to communities and nature. We achieved that goal in 2015 and plan to maintain it as the business grows.

In 2017, our water savings improved for the 15th consecutive year—up 15% since 2010. That’s a 29.3% improvement since 2004 when we started reporting water savings throughout our global system.

By 2020, we aim to save 25% more water in manufacturing operations compared with a 2010 baseline.
