OUR WORK IS ALIGNED WITH UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS


Logo: UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly announced 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to address global challenges and set a blueprint for action to achieve the goals by 2030. Our sustainability priorities are aligned with the SDGs so that our actions can contribute to a greater collective impact.

Our ambition is to use our scale, reach, and expertise to help build a more sustainable beverage system, and the SDGs provide a vital framework for progress and partnership on a global scale.
