Coca-Cola is the first Fortune 500 company to replenish all the water it uses globally


The Coca-Cola Company and its global bottling partners (the Coca-Cola system) have announced they have met their goal to replenish, or in other words balance, the equivalent amount of water used in their global sales volume back to nature and communities.

Based on this achievement, Coca-Cola is the first Fortune 500 company to publicly claim achieving such an aggressive water replenishment target.

The Coca-Cola system also announced progress against its water efficiency goal. The company and its bottling partners improved water use efficiency by 2.5 percent from 2014 to 2015, adding to a cumulative 27 percent improvement since 2004. 

Based on a global water use assessment validated by LimnoTech and Deloitte, and conducted in association with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Coca-Cola system returned an estimated 191.9 billion litres of water to nature and communities in 2015 through community water projects, equalling the equivalent of 115 percent of the water used in Coca-Cola's beverages last year.
