Sustainability is at the heart of our business

This is Forward. 

This is Forward is our sustainability action plan. It sits at the heart of our long-term business strategy and sets out the actions we are taking on six key social and environmental topics, where we know we can make a significant difference and what our stakeholders want us to prioritise: 

  • Climate action 
  • Sustainable packaging 
  • Water stewardship 
  • The wellbeing of our people and those working across our value chain 
  • Consumer health and wellbeing 
  • Our contribution to our local communities 

Our success is built on great people, great service and great beverages. We want to deliver sustainable growth, create value for all our stakeholders and build a better future for our business, our communities and the planet. 

This is Forward is closely aligned with The Coca-Cola Company’s global sustainability ambitions. It includes our 2030 GHG emissions reduction target, which is approved by the Science Based Targets initiative as being in line with a 1.5°C reduction pathway and our commitments align with the targets which underpin the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

This is Forward has now been extended to cover our markets in Europe, Australia, the Pacific and Indonesia. It is a unified action plan that we will work towards in 29 countries across the world, and includes ambitious, time-bound sustainability commitments.
