Our supply chains are under increasing pressure as a result of population growth, increased demand for food products and the impacts of climate change. That’s why we’re sourcing all our agricultural ingredients and raw materials sustainably and responsibly.
We rely upon a sustainable supply of ingredients like sugar, coffee, tea and juices as well as raw materials we use for our packaging like glass, aluminium, plastic, pulp and paper.
We believe that the quality and integrity of our products depends on sustainable global supply chains with successful and thriving farming communities, where human rights are respected and protected. Sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices also have a critical role to play in tackling climate change and in driving long-term resilience within our supply chains.
That is why, together with The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC), we have made a commitment to ensure that our agricultural ingredients and raw materials are sourced sustainably and require our suppliers to meet strict targets around workplace policies and human rights. Together with TCCC, we work collaboratively with our suppliers to support biodiversity and ecosystems and to respect and protect the human rights of everyone working across our supply chain.
We aim to ensure our suppliers respect our Code of Conduct and make a positive impact on society, in line with the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the United Nations’ Global Compact.
Our suppliers are responsible for over 90% of our value chain GHG emissions and we will not meet our own GHG emission reduction targets unless we work in partnership with them. As a result, we are committed to supporting our suppliers to set their own science-based carbon reduction targets and to shift to 100% renewable electricity.
