Introduction 4The Coca-Cola Company: World Without Waste 2019 In 2018, we launched World Without Waste with a simple, focused purpose: make the world™s packaging waste problem a thing of the past.We built World Without Waste on three fundamental goals: Make 100% of our packaging recyclable globally by 2025Šand use at least 50% recycled material in our packaging by 2030; collect and recycle a bottle or can for each one we sell by 2030; and work together to support a healthy, debris-free environment. We know we can™t do it alone. We are working in partnership with bottling partners, environmentalists, industry peers, regulators, retailers, and others to dramatically reduce the impact of packaging waste on our environment. In 2018, we published a implementation report . In 2019 we pushed further to better design our packaging, innovate in the way our beverages are delivered, and collaborate to ensure packaging is collected and recycled: Ł We replicated the successful PET Recycling Company (PETCO)Šthe South African plastic industry™s initiative to recycle 100% of its polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic outputŠby launching it in Kenya in 2018 and beginning the launch process in Ethiopia in 2019. Ł We implemented a comprehensive set of actions address collection, design, and consumer and industry action. Ł We actively participated in and led the development of industry collection coalitions across Southeast Asia. Ł In several countries across the globe we accelerated the timeline to deliver on our goal to use at least 50% recycled material in our packaging by 2030. Ł We advanced package innovations and recycling technologies through partnerships in Australia, France, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and the United States, among other places. This was possible because of the work of our people and partners in every part of the globe. And there is much more to come. We have galvanized our entire system around this vision and are working market by market to achieve it. 123Make 100% of our packaging recyclable globally by 2025Šand use at least 50% recycled material in our packaging by 2030. for each one we sell by 2030. Work together to support a healthy, debris-free environment. We continue to relentlessly pursue our three fundamental goals:

5The Coca-Cola Company: World Without Waste 2019 Introduction We are striving to make packaging part of a circular economy, with a focus on 100% collection rates and an increase in recycling. Our goal is to create closed-loop systems, so that old bottles and cans can become new bottles and cans. Whenever we sell an aluminum can or plastic bottleŠ or any other beverage container for that matterŠwe want to collect one back and make sure it has a second life as a new container or other useful item. We™ve made good progress in 2018 and 2019, but we are just getting started. In this report, we aim to provide an update on: How we are designing our packaging differently (see ﬁ Designﬂ).How we are contributing to collection and recycling efforts worldwide (see ﬁ Collectﬂ).How we are partnering with stakeholders to realize these goals (see ﬁ Partner ﬂ).
