Our World, Our Future

This Is Our Planet, Let's Look After It

Sustainability

Our World, Our Future

We all share a responsibility for protecting our planet's precious natural resources, and Coca-Cola Consolidated is proud to be a leader in environmental stewardship. Water conservation, reduced emissions, program activation, and partnerships with environmental organizations—we support the safeguarding of our natural resources for future generations.  

Saving Water Together

Conserving natural resources is everyone’s responsibility. We operate some of the most water-efficient plants in the world, each one far exceeding U.S. industry standards for water conservation. We not only minimize water used in our plants, but also recycle wastewater from our manufacturing processes while adhering to stringent quality standards. Our Charlotte, NC, bottling plant has its own wastewater treatment facility that allows us to discharge water that is as clean as the water we purchase.

Protecting Our Rivers, Protecting Our Wildlife

The rivers and streams in the Cumberland, Mobile and Tennessee River basins contain more aquatic diversity than anyplace else in North America. Since 2008, Coca-Cola Consolidated has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to promote sustainable water policies, including water reuse practices, to protect and restore this diversity.

Sustainability

Recycling to Win

When you’re done, that bottle isn’t. Recycled plastic bottles can become t-shirts, backpacks, or be recycled back into our packaging. 100% of our packaging is recyclable. Coca-Cola Consolidated developed a comprehensive Recycle & Win program that encourages consumers in our local markets to recycle via partnerships with city and county governments, local media, and local retailers. These partnerships have resulted in measurable recycling rate increases throughout the region that we serve.

From the Skies

Have you ever used a rain barrel? Each year, our Nashville production facility provides hundreds of empty concentrate drums to the Cumberland River Compact (CRC), who converts them into rainwater collection barrels. Using rain barrels to collect water and then using it to water plants, to wash laundry, or even to flush toilets saves water, saves money, and helps minimize our impact on the water table.
