Through our global commitment towards a “World Without Waste” launched in 2018, we are re-imagining our approach to packaging across our African markets. We are working towards collecting a bottle or can for each one we sell by 2030. We have also committed to making 100% of our packing recyclable by 2025 and use at least 50% recycled material in our packaging by 2030.


See how Coca‑Cola Africa is already contributing to this ambitious plan by bringing people together and investing in recycling infrastructure and packaging:
