2017 performance highlights

During 2017 we made notable gains in improving water efficiency, reducing carbon emissions and managing waste materials as well as taking new steps to promote responsible drinking and agreeing strategic partnerships with development organisations.

“We have a responsibility to create shared value, for our communities, our people and our shareholders, and I am immensely proud of our work in this area. Our ambitious water stewardship strategy, our progress in local sourcing in Africa and our partnerships with NGOs, governments and other stakeholders enables our business to grow. As we now move forward to our 2020 goals, with a focus on our long-term impact, we will build on these successes to achieve even more.”

Our targets

We now look ahead to our 2020 targets, which draw on our achievements to date and our ambitions for the future. These are aligned with the emerging UN Global Goals and, working with others, the shared value we create can contribute to ending extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.
