Life Below Water

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

Healthy oceans and seas are essential to our existence. They cover 70 percent of our planet and we rely on them for food, energy and water. Yet, we have managed to do tremendous damage to these precious resources. We must protect them by eliminating pollution and overfishing and immediately start to responsibly manage and protect all marine life around the world.

Business Avenger: The Coca-Cola Company

"The Coca-Cola Company is focused on creating loved brands, done sustainably for a better shared future. We work to protect and conserve the natural resources we share with the world, with the intention to lessen our environmental footprint while supporting the communities where we operate.

As a global system with operations across more than 200 countries and territories, our programs support a variety of principles across all 17 Sustainable Development Global Goals. Our work in water stewardship and building a World Without Waste related to our packaging specifically support SDG14: protecting life below water.

We’re committed to replenish all the water we use globally. Since 2010, we’ve worked with partners around the world to safely return approximately 1 trillion liters of safe freshwater back to ecosystems and communities, including water treatment and run-off reduction.

Our focus on creating a World Without Waste is our effort to ensure all our packaging is recyclable, collected and recycled by 2030 and 50% material reuse by 2030. We’re also actively working to clean litter out of waterways through cross-sector partnerships and investments in innovative solutions.

Learn more about our goals and progress in our most recent Business and Sustainability Report which maps our sustainability initiatives against the Global Goals."
