Key FindingsView the policy document
Coca-Cola aims “to collect and recycle a bottle or can for every one we sell, make our packaging 100% recyclable by 2025, and use 50% recycled material in our bottles and cans by 2030.” As of 2020, 90% of packaging is recycled (out of a target of 100% by 2025), 22% across all materials and 11.5% of PET plastic (out of a target for 50% recycled material in packaging globally by 2030), and 60% collection rate for packaging globally (Coca-Cola, 2020a). Coca Cola still maintains ownership of the highest amount of their products ending up as plastic pollution in the environment in the world.
Through an analytical framework, we've reviewed over 100 plastic policies. These reviews determine the effectiveness of policies in reducing plastic pollution and we offer recommendations in light of this evidence, to enhance future policy making.
