Produce plastic bottles made from 100% recycled material

We recommend that Coca-Cola increase their target of using 50% of recycled material in their packaging by 2030 to ‘using 100% of recycled material in their packaging by 2030’.

The Issue

Coca-Cola’s current target is to use at least 50% recycled material in its packaging by 2030. Coca-Cola re-committed to this target in 2018, after it failed to reach its initial target of using at least 25% of recycled material in its packaging by 2015. In reality, Coca-Cola actually used only 12.4% of recycled material in its packaging, falling far short of its 2015 goal. Coca-Cola has insisted that it will not abandon plastic bottles due to their popularity with customers; however, in order to reach their sustainability goals, Coca-Cola needs to prioritise adjusting its plastic production methods and reduce its waste.

Coca-Cola has recently been named the top global polluter of plastic for the 3rd year in a row by the currently Break Free from Plastic Audit, which was conducted by 14,734 volunteers across 55 countries in 2020. Currently, Coca-
Cola currently produces 3 million tonnes of plastic packaging every year and 200,000 bottles a minute. Coca-Cola needs to address its plastic pollution and the global impact it creates.

Supporting Statement

Plastic pollution is a huge global environmental issue as plastic is not-biodegradable. While plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces, it still remains in the environment and enters our food chain. The production of plastic globally is continuing to increase with 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic being produced since 1950. Furthermore, half of the plastic ever produced was manufactured in the last 15 years. Single-use plastic can remain on the planet for centuries and hugely impact future generations.

How Tulipshare works
stocks
We identify opportunities for ethical change at public companies
These opportunities are identified through our own research analysts and the community we’ve built at Tulipshare. We then work with our legal team to verify and build our campaign.
invest
We work to acquire company shares so that we can engage as an investor
Unfortunately, there’s a minimum investment threshold to be able to vote and propose changes at public companies. That’s why we created Tulipshare - so that we can unify the investing power of like-minded individuals to drive change from within.
values
We leverage the collective shares of our investor community
Once we acquire enough shares, we start discussions with the company to promote ethical change. This isn’t always easy and the company may object to our requests. However we keep our investors informed of progress and all communications - so you’re aware of what’s happening every step of the way.
