Equatorial Coca-Cola is working hard to reduce the emissions generated by our activities; from our manufacturing processes and packaging formats to our distribution fleet.
To this end, under our Climate pillar from our ESG Impact Strategy 2030, we have committed to preserving our shared environment by driving efficiencies and innovation, so that we create more value with less energy, both in the business and in our communities. To do so, for 2030 we will work to achieve our two main goals through 4 different action plans
Improve energy efficiency by 25% by 2030
Reduce the total energy consumed by testing and expanding solar refrigeration within our park and replacing old coolers by low consumption ones.
Install, where feasible, solar sources for energy and study alternative renewable sources.
Reduce the carbon footprint by 25% by 2030
Electric & Hybrid Fleet
Where available in each market, create a feasibility study for electric alternatives to our fleet.
Carbon Footprint Roadmap
Define and implement a carbon transition plan.
Solar Cooler Pilot
ECCBC has started a pilot project in Ghana to fit solar coolers at different points of sale in order to reduce energy consumption.
This action consists of testing and expanding solar refrigeration across plants to replace old coolers and reduce the total energy consumed. This measure contributes not only to ECCBC’s Climate targets but also to a number of UN Sustainable Development Goals:
Leveraging sustainable technology
to increase ECCBC’s topline, thus ensuring profitability across all geographies
Sustainable technology development and management, to make renewables a thing of the future
Operating at the cutting edge of the Coca-Cola system sustainability journey, as a leader on the African continent
Decreasing ECCBC’s carbon emissions,
thereby abiding by the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
Supporting economic development in communities, by providing off-grid points of sale and access to technology
ECCBC Carbon Roadmap
In the first quarter of 2022, ECCBC undertook a decisive journey to study the company’s carbon footprint, including all 3 scopes, and design the first roadmap to reduce its carbon emissions, advised by PwC United Kingdom.
Thanks to this, at Group level we have been able to define our opportunities and challenges to meet our carbon reduction goals and we have started a second phase of the study to define the specific roadmaps and carbon offsets for each of our business units.(more…)
Energy Management Catalogue
In addition to the Packaging and Water, as part of the Coca-Cola Global Environment Council, we created the tools needed to set the targets for improving our energy efficiency using science-based data versus industry standards.
