The Coca-Cola Company

The Coca-Cola System and Value Chain
As a global system, our operations span the world. Our beverages are available to consumers in more than 200 countries and territories. Our success in being a trusted and recognized brand is in large part due to our reliable partners across our value chain. Our bottling partners, suppliers, distributors, retailers, customers and the communities in which we operate help us grow our business and continually improve our sustainability performance. The priority issues analysis we conducted in early 2014 identified the key issues that many stakeholders and those within our Company consider most important to address in our sustainability reporting. These priority issues are: • Active Healthy Living • Human Rights • Packaging • Product and Ingredient Safety • Water Stewardship. We map these priority issues to our value chain, which helps us identify and address key impacts where they occur.
