  • Coca ColaBy: Gabriel WhaleyVictoria RyooNandita Rao

  • History/ Past actions and concernsBattling the usage of chlorofluorocarbons in the 1990sBeing in agreement with 1997 Kyoto Agreement to find alternative refrigeration technologiesJoining Danish Technical Institute, Danish Emergency Agency and Vestfrost and Danfoss to conduct trials on single door coolers that reduce energy consumption using HC gases

  • Current Energy ConsumptionManufacturing850 plants provides power for equipment such as boilers, chillers and air compressors Fleet/Transport200,000 vehicles transports ingredients, packaging and finished beverages Sales/Marketing equipmentmore than 9 million vending machines and coolers largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions within the system and produce three times the estimated emissions of our manufacturing facilities

  • Protection StrategyRefrigeration EquipmentOffices and bottling plantsFleet and transportationGlobal awareness and action

  • Refrigeration EquipmentVending machines and coolersmore than nine million coolers and vending machinesthe largest estimated contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within our system wide operationsproduce three times the estimated emissions of our manufacturing facilities and more than five times the emissions from our fleetCornerstone of their energy and climate protection efforts

  • Offices and Bottling PlantsCoca Cola is investing to improve our energy efficiency by investigating and supporting market development for renewable power Coca Cola has discovered practices which can improve energy efficiency in company operations by more than 10%, and prevent about 500,000 metric tons per year of greenhouse gas emissions

  • Fleet and transportationEnergy is used by 200,000 vehicles to transport ingredients, packaging and finished beveragesFossil fuels provide the bulk of their energy, but supports market development for renewable powerdeveloped an Energy-Efficiency Guidance Manual that includes best practices which can improve energy efficiency in our operations by more than 10%, and prevent about 500,000 metric tons per year of greenhouse gas emissions

  • Global Awareness and actionActions takenLaunched multi-stakeholder initiative called Refrigerants, Naturally! in 2004 encourage environmentally friendly cooling technologies and to address global climate change through promotion of HFC-free alternative refrigeration technologies that protect the Earth's climate and ozone layerPartnership with WWF to reduce energy consumption and climate footprintSigned the UNs Global Compact's "Caring for Climate: The Business Leadership Platform." which is a global call to businesses and governments to speed up action on climate changecommitted to engage our global supply chain to work toward the common objective of advancing practical climate change solutions

  • Recent actions (in 2007)increased the penetration of Energy Management System, EMS-55, which can reduce energy consumption up to 35 percentBy the end of 2007, over 500,000 of these EMS-55 units were shipped into the Coca-Cola systemcombined annual energy reduction is estimated to be more than 650 million kilowatt-hours, with a corresponding greenhouse gas reduction of over 350,000 metric tons

  • Actions the company has planned/is planning to take to battle global climate changeNew environmental policy for cold drink equipmentExpanding research in development of more environmentally friendly equipmentNo longer purchasing new cold drink equipment using hydro fluorocarbons when cost efficient alternatives are available (for to both refrigerant gases and insulation)There will be specific time schedules to use only HFC free foam insulation and refrigerationWants to create new equipment that is 40-50 percent more energy efficient than today's

  • Outline of actions planned to taketransitioned to HFC-free insulation for new purchases of sales and marketing refrigeration equipmentThis new equipment generates 75% fewer direct greenhouse gas emissions as compared with traditional sales equipmentsignificant research and development investments to identify a cost-effective commercial solution to refrigerant gasusing carbon dioxide technology to help reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions from refrigerants(Carbon dioxide is a natural refrigerant that is HFC-free, has less direct climate impact and improves energy efficiency under typical operating conditions)
