A truly multinational corporation, The Coca-Cola Company is a manufacturer, retailer and marketer of a range of beverages. Since its first product launched in 1886, the company has expanded its product portfolio to over 200 brands and sales in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. Furthermore, it works with 225 bottling partners across 900 bottling plants, serving an estimated 30 million retail outlets in total. Acquisitions, such as the USD 4.9 billion takeover of UK-based Costa Coffee in 2019, have helped The Coca-Cola Company consolidate its market position as one of the world's biggest beverage concerns.
The Coca-Cola Company ranks 11th compared to its peers in the food and beverage manufacturers/processors segment. The company meets commitment-level requirements in many of the environment measurement area indicators but has not quite reached its leading peers’ level of performance when it comes to reducing GHG emissions and food loss and waste. However, it does outperform many of its peers in its efforts to improve soil health and agrobiodiversity and to optimise the use of fertilisers and pesticides. The company is also behind its peers in commitments around protecting human rights, specifically child labour and forced labour, and respecting the land rights of local communities.
