Environmental
Footprint

With the concerns of growing population demand and scarce natural resources, management of our environmental impacts plays a vital role in the continuity of our business as a responsible company. We aim to use fewer natural resources, operate efficiently and generate less waste, intensively focusing on ‘energy management and climate change’, ‘water’ and ‘sustainable packaging’ practices.
Governance
CCI’s sustainability governance is structured to support and manage comprehensive key environmental concerns. The CCI Group Supply Chain Director has the ultimate responsibility for environmental management and is diligently monitoring our sustainability goals.
For further details, please see
Sustainability Organization topic under
Section 1 - Sustainability Approach.
Compliance
We comply with local legal requirements, international standards and TCCC KORE requirements. Our perpetual goal is 100% compliance with legal environmental limits and TCCC’s standards. In 2019, we fully complied with environmental legislation and TCCC standards, and consequently did not receive any fines.
Trainings
In 2019, we provided 5,639 human-hours of environmental training to our employees in Turkey, Jordan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, to improve our performance and create environmental awareness.
For detailed data on our employee demographics, please see  
Section 3 – Performance Indicators.
Management Systems
All our plants in Turkey, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Iraq and Turkmenistan hold the ISO 14001 standard certificates. In Turkey, all plants are certified according to ISO 50001 Energy Management System and all plants, sales operations and offices are certified according to ISO 14064-1 GHG Standards. The plants in Pakistan which are Lahore, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Multan and Rahim Yar Khan are certified according to ISO 50001 Energy Management System.
We established a committee to maximize our potential to reduce our WUR (Water Usage Ratio) and EUR (Energy Usage Ratio) values in 2018. This committee conducted a current state assessment and gap analysis among the plants followed by an action plan. With this methodology, CCI reviews and evaluates its performance every three months.
Highlights of our Environmental
Management Performance
Our primary goal is to grow by using less resources. Our performance shows that although we increased our sales revenue, we succeeded in reducing our energy intensity through the years. In 2019, with CCI operational excellence (OE) projects we saved 142,3 Million MJ of Energy, 10,737 tons of CO2e emissions, 99 tons of cardboard waste, 35 tons of PET waste and 128,593 m3 of water. We supplied the energy needs for illumination and post mix line in our İzmir Plant from 100% clean energy resources.

Climate change is among the biggest threats to the world’s ecosystems and humanity. With our responsible business practices, CCI joins the global business community in implementing the necessary changes to combat these risks. Energy efficiency and climate protection is our primary focus in reducing our environmental footprint. We are aware that climate change may have direct and indirect implications for our business, supply chain and communities.
The focus areas of our energy efficiency and
climate protection strategy are:
1. Reducing energy usage and GHG emissions in our manufacturing operations, manufacturing and sales offices by implementing energy efficiency programs;
2. Reducing logistics-based direct emissions with effective fleet and fuel management and optimization practices;
3. Reducing indirect emissions by concentrating on our climate friendly refrigeration programs;
4. Increasing awareness on climate protection by collaborating with our distributors, dealers, suppliers and other stakeholders;
6. Calculating, verifying and reporting accurate carbon footprint of our operations;
7. Promoting climate change awareness by engaging with our stakeholders in relevant platforms;
8. Calculating the carbon footprint of our products in line with a life-cycle approach;
9. Researching clean and renewable energy and investing in, where possible;
10. Investigating opportunities and conducting a feasibility study to supply sustainable sources.

Practices to Reduce Carbon Footprint
Transport and Distribution Practices
We transport millions of products from our suppliers to our plants and from our plants to our customers and distributors. Our business success is dependent on efficient logistics network that optimizes the number of vehicles in transit and the mileage covered and aims to reduce emissions. The optimization of distribution is crucial to our business performance, since transportation accounts for around 9.2% of the total GHG emissions of our value chain in Turkey. We choose vehicles that consume less fuel and emit less carbon. Through our “Route Optimization Project” since 2013 and the “Road Net” platform since 2016 enables us reducing 1,400 tons of GHG emissions and fuel saving of $650,000 annually.
Cooling Practices
Refrigeration greatly improves our consumers’ enjoyment of our products. Yet again, with regards to protecting the environment, we need to find the balance between our efforts to please our customers and our responsibility to decrease our environmental footprint. We continuously upgrade existing equipment to the energy efficient technology, and we continue to work with suppliers to innovate and develop climate-friendly cooling technologies. Within this reporting period, we collected and disposed about 34,000 old cooling equipment. We aim to prevent the emission of 1.75 million tons of CO2 with the EMD and HFC-Free Cold drink equipment procurement between 2010-2020 across CCI.
Cold Drink Equipment with LED Lights
At CCI Turkey operations, we have been purchasing cold drink equipment with LED lights since 2012. With the purchasing of all new cold drink equipment with LED lights, overall ratio of our cold drink equipment with LED lights increased from 8% in 2012 to 62% in 2019. With this strategy, we will keep increasing our ratio and minimizing our energy consumption.
HFC-free Cold Drink Equipment
The use of HFCs as refrigerants in cold drink equipment has negative impact on climate change. Together with its bottling partners, TCCC set the goal to have 100% of its new cold drink equipment HFC-free. In cases if a commercial HFC-free solution is not available, we collaborate with our suppliers to develop alternative HFC-free solutions. This effort is vitally important as HFC-free cold drink equipment have at least 1,000 times less effect on global warming when compared to their HFC counterparts.
On the other side, refrigerants in cold drink equipment may slowly leak into the atmosphere during use or may leak completely if the equipment is not properly disposed at the end of its life cycle. CCI always ensures that cold drink equipment is properly degassed.

As of 2019 end, 74.6% of all cold drink equipment and 98.9% of newly purchased cold drink equipment in Turkey are HFC-free*.

*HFC: Hydrofluorocarbon
Cold Drink Equipment with
Energy Management Device (EMD)
Effective since 2009, Energy Management Device (EMD) is another tool which enables us to tune our cold drink equipment’s environmental footprint. By using cold drink equipment with EMD, we can reduce energy consumption up to 42%. For this reason, we preferred to purchase new cold drink equipment (larger than 250-liter capacity) with EMD as part of the initiative.
With our climate-friendly actions in seven countries of operation, we avoided 1,686 kilotons of CO2 emissions since 2009 which is equivalent amount of CO2 emissions that 140 million trees* absorb from the atmosphere.

The total ratio of cold drink equipment with Energy Management Device (EMD) within our operations in seven countries increased by 8.2% to 48.2% in 2019

* Calculation is made based the assumption that an average mature (15 years and older) tree absorbs 12 kg CO2 annually.

Awareness Programs of TCCC and CCI
on Energy and Climate
The Behavioral Energy Efficiency Program
The Behavioral Energy Efficiency Program
Searching for new means and promoting effective change are fundamental to TCCC’s Behavioral Energy Efficiency Program (Energy Excellence). Our individual relationship with the systems, technology, procedures, and our perceptions of this relationship have direct impacts on productivity, collaborative efforts and success. This program is designed with staff awareness and culture at its core. Our goal is to extend the Energy Efficiency Top 10 by promoting a company roadmap that provides a holistic approach to “Energy Excellence”. It also helps to spread a sense of ownership and accountability for this issue. In 2017, the program was replicated in all 21 CCI plants in 10 countries.
Reduce the CO2 Emissions Embedded in the Drink in Your Hand by 25% by 2020
The Behavioral Energy Efficiency Reduce the CO2 Emissions Embedded in the Drink in Your Hand by 25% by 2020
TCCS launched a global initiative called “Reduce the CO2 emissions embedded in the drink in your hand by 25% by 2020” in 2013 and aimed at reducing GHG emissions across its entire value chain. In CCI, we align our climate change mitigation goal with this overall target in order to achieve comprehensive carbon   footprint reductions across our value chain. In 2019, it is estimated that we reduced the CO2 embedded in the Coca-Cola “drink in your hand” by 24% below 2010 levels (Baseline: 2010).
Hand in Hand Environment Program
Hand in Hand Environment Program

In 2019, we had started to create the Hand in Hand Environmental Program in order to standardize environmental practices at CCI. Hand in Hand Environmental System focuses on preventing behavioral waste as well as sustainability projects.

“Turkey’s Fight against Climate Change” Conference organized by ÇEVKO was held in October 2019, with the participation of Deputy Minister of Environment and Urbanization of Turkey. CCI Group Corporate Affairs Manager shared CCI’s sustainability strategy and the pioneering practices with regards to climate change with the participants from the public, private sector and the academia.
Emissions by Scope and Region
Emissions by Scope and
Region

At CCI, together with the total emissions for each country of operation, we also monitor our GHG emissions ratio which represents grams of CO2e per liter of product produced. Our absolute CO2 emissions in seven countries of operation increased from 1,010 kilotons to 1,038 kilotons This increase is due to the addition of Tajikistan in the reporting scope, and as a result of the sum of minor increases in the total emissions in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan. Our absolute emissions increased by 2.8% while our revenues grew by 15.3%.

* For details of stack gas emissions, please see
Emissions of Turkey Operations
This year in CCI Turkey Operations, even though the stationary combustion emissions increased, the fleet and fugitive emissions significantly decreased and so our total Scope 1 emissions decreased by 6% to 45,649 tons CO2. Our Scope 2 emission increased by 0.92% to 68,587 tons CO2 parallel to the increase in electricity use. Although emissions from downstream transport decreased with respect to last year, emissions from cold drink equipment and business travel slightly increased resulting with an increase in total Scope 3 emissions by 2.7% to 434,548 tons CO2 with respect to 2018.
For details of emissions, please see
Section 3: Sustainability Indicators.
In addition to reducing the absolute emissions, we optimized our operations to increase emission savings. We avoided 360 kilotons of CO2 emissions in Turkey in 2019 as a result of best practices executed all throughout the value chain, which is equal to the amount of CO2  that approximately 30 million trees* annually extract from the atmosphere.
* Calculation is made based the assumption that an average mature (15 years and older) tree absorbs 12 kg CO2 annually.

Sustainable Packaging
Packaging is an essential aspect of the quality of our products and ensures safe delivery of our products to our customers and consumers. With our sustainable packaging efforts to conserve resources and use less energy; we not only contribute to the circular economy, but also reduce our carbon footprint.
Our Sustainable Packaging Strategy: Design, Collect, Partner!
It is unacceptable that packaging ends up in our oceans and waterways or littering the communities in which we all live and work. Using less resources for packaging has always been one of CCI’s packaging strategy’s key elements and design lied beneath this goal. Consequently, we continuously work to develop lighter packaging by using less material and conduct lightweight projects on both glass and resin side. We also focus our efforts on reusing our glass bottles, collecting back the packaging we put on the market and increasing the recycled content in our packaging. We aligned our packaging strategy in 2019 with TCCC’s new environmental program: A World Without Waste.
A World Without Waste
The Coca-Cola Company launched a bold and ambitious environmental program in 2018 with the vision for A World Without Waste. The three internal pillars of the plan are Design, Collect and Partner. Goals of the project revolve around:
• Continuing to focus on making the packaging    100% recyclable
• Collecting and recycling the equivalent of the    100% of the packaging it sells by 2030
• Increasing the recycled content in the packaging
Lightweight
As defined in our strategy, we put several practices into action to reduce the amount of natural resources used in packaging without compromising the safety of our products. Our efforts began in 2008 when we reduced the length of the bottleneck for the lightweight PET bottle in Turkey. We have been implementing lightweight programs since 2010 in Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan operations.
In 2015, we conducted a benchmark study covering all CCI countries of operations to map the amount of resin used for all sizes of bottles and to share best practices of lightweight applications among the plants. With our lightweight practices; we save materials and also reduce GHG emissions released during production. With the help of lightweight and short neck practices; 145 tons of resin and 232 tons of glass is saved in seven countries of operation in 2019.

PlantBottle
PlantBottle usage performance in 2019 was 99% in Azerbaijan and 98% in both Jordan and Pakistan.
Recycled PET (r-PET)
As a consequence of the great emphasis we place on circular economy at CCI, we focus on the entire life cycle of packaging through a renewed perspective. We spend continuous efforts to increase the amount of recycled material in our packaging.

Besides the mandatory regulations on the use of r-PET up to 6% in beverage packaging, we have been long working on the use of recycled materials without compromising the product safety and consumer health.
In 2019, we used 14,105 tons of 20% content r-PET (compared with 800 tons in 2018) in 30% of our total volume; using chemical recycling method.  The target for the r-PET usage in the content is 25% for 2020. Using r-PET in secondary packaging like labels and shrink is another target we work on with our strategic partners. In the upcoming years, we plan to continue our extensive efforts to further increase the r-PET content.
Returnable Glass Bottle Use in
Turkey and Pakistan
Returnable Glass Bottle Use in Turkey and Pakistan
With returnable bottle practices, glass bottles can be used up to eight times. With this practice, less energy is used for the bottle production and less resources are consumed.
The amount of refillable glass packaging in Turkey and Pakistan in 2019 has reached 162,895 tons. Thus, we avoided 191,239 tons of CO2e via returnable glass bottle practices, equaling to the amount that is absorbed by 15.9 million trees.*

* Calculation is made based the assumption that an average mature (15 years and older) tree absorbs 12 kg CO2 annually.
Post-Consumer Packaging
Waste Recycling
We believe every packaging has a life beyond its initial value. For this reason, CCI places high priority to recycling. Our efforts include encouraging our customers and consumers to use returnable bottles and increase our recycling rates in cooperation with our authorized business partner. To sustain a holistic approach, CCI established a cross-functional Sustainable Packaging Task Force with the aim of shaping CCI’s long-term recycling strategy and laying out the roadmap to reach a circular economy. The Sustainable Packaging Task Force conducted an analysis of the waste infrastructure, legal background, and stakeholder expectations regarding “recycling of packaging material” in our countries of operation. The details of related new regulations issued in Turkey, are given under Our Operating Environment topic.
Across CCI, we commenced stakeholder engagement efforts to create a common vision for recycling and establish recycling schemes where applicable. In Turkey, the current system is based on Extended Producer’s Responsibility. In 2019, the recycling rate of CCI in Turkey for plastics, glass, metal and aluminum-packaging waste was 54%. We achieved this rate with the help of our authorized business partner Çevko (Green Dot) Foundation. Partnering helps us improve recycling rates and achieve our collection goals. We will continue to team up with TCCC, local communities, NGOs, industry peers and consumers to help make recycling easier and more accessible for everyone by improving local recycling systems and driving policy change that supports a truly circular economy.

Zero Waste to Landfill
At all CCI plants, we work to minimize our environmental footprint by minimizing the amount of waste that is disposed of safely and in compliance with legislation. Our main strategy is based on preventing, reducing, reusing, recycling and recovering the waste. To do so, we employ the ISO 14001 environmental management system and carry out related operations in accordance with CCI’s environmental policy, legislations and TCCC’s KORE-EOSH requirements. At our production sites, we segregate our waste as reusable, recyclable, hazardous, landfill and non-recyclable wastes.
All waste that can be reused is reused, and that which can be recycled and recovered is delivered to licensed companies in all CCI operations. Waste that cannot be recycled or recovered is sorted according to specific, legally defined categories and delivered to licensed disposal facilities or municipalities to be used as landfill or to be incinerated. According to our waste management standards, all waste disposal sites are evaluated before use, and periodically thereafter, to verify and document site acceptability.
In line with our approach to produce more while consuming less, achieving zero waste production is our ultimate goal. Since 2006, we manage to improve our performance in all countries of operation. In line with compliance with Zero Waste Regulation, Hazar, Elazığ, Ankara and Çorlu plants in CCI Turkey currently operate as “Zero Waste” facilities and the roll-out for the remaining facilities is in progress.

Water is one of the most critical natural resources. It is as well the main ingredient of our products and indispensable element of our production. So, there is a direct link between sustainable use of water and the sustainability of our business. Therefore, minimizing our negative impacts on water and sustaining water efficient operations is of utmost priority and we fully support TCCC’s ultimate goal “replenish every drop of water we use.”
Our water management strategy is summarized below:
• Improving the overall water-use efficiency in our plants;
• Implementing Source Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) and Source Water Protection (SWP) studies to protect water catchment basins in the regions where our plants are located;
• Managing wastewater and storm water discharge in our plants (achieving 100% compliance in wastewater treatment);
• Replenishing the water, we use, back to the nature by implementing locally relevant programs;
• Mitigating risk for communities and for our business, by partnering with governments, NGOs and communities to assess, understand and generate effective, long-term water stress solutions, and implement source water protection plans;
• Researching and investing in new technologies to reduce water consumption;
• Investigating opportunities and conducting feasibility study to supply sustainable sources.

Plant Water Usage and Minimization
At CCI, we monitor is the amount of water used for producing one liter of product. Our plants have created water map in order to follow water consumption on a daily basis. We continuously analyze, evaluate and spread best practices among CCI plants to reduce our water usage ratio (WUR). Our 2020 goal for CCI Turkey Operations is to achieve a water usage ratio of 1.48 liter of water per liter of product.
Top 10 Water Saving Program
All CCI plants completed the program in 2018, which was designed to reduce water usage in production facilities and to support continuous improvement of water usage ratio in our plants.
As a result of CCI water reduction activities started in CCI Operations in 2006, there has been a 30% improvement in TCCC’s water efficiency on a global basis by the end of 2019.
Some of the top water saving programs included;
• Soft water regeneration optimization project in Isparta plant in Turkey;
• Wastewater treatment effluent to be used for road washing in Lahore plant in Pakistan;
• Replacing the water which enters the cooling tower of PET blow and preform injection parts with reverse osmosis water and consequently reducing the blowdown amount.
According to State Hydraulic Works data*, industry accounts for 14% of the total amount of annual usable water in Turkey and CCI Turkey Operations’ total water withdrawal accounts for only 0.058% of Turkey’s industrial water usage.
Source Water Vulnerability Assessment (SVA)
The water we use in our products and our production processes is drawn from local sources. As part of our water stewardship program, we conduct a local source vulnerability assessment (SVA) and develop Source Water Protection Plan (SWPP) to use water responsibly, mitigate water-related risks to our system and to the communities we serve.

SVAs allow us to assess vulnerabilities to community sources of water and help us determine potential impacts of our water usage and wastewater discharge. This assessment is conducted in five-year rounds at all CCI plants. As of December 31, 2016, all CCI plants had completed their SVA studies in all countries of operation. The second round of SVA studies that began in 2016 will keep on until the assessments are complete for all CCI plants by 2020. In 2020, our goal is to conduct SVA studies in our Astana, Çorlu, İzmir, Mersin, Ankara and Baku plants.
During an SVA study, an analysis of water basins and sub-basins around our plants is conducted, and it includes the topographical, geological, hydro-geological and hydrological assessment of the study areas as well as identification of any risks to the sustainability of water resources within these areas. SVA studies include processes such as field surveys, interviews with plant authorities or site representatives, interviews with local and national authorities as well as desktop studies. These assessments file an inventory of the social, environmental and political risks to the water sources supplying our facilities and surrounding communities. We evaluate the results of these studies with a SWPP and act on a plant-by-plant basis.
TCCC’s Replenishment Goal
TCCS’s “water neutrality” goal is defined as:
1. Returning the water we use back to the communities we serve by treating all wastewater and returning it to the environment at a level of purity that supports aquatic life.

2. Replenishing the amount of water equivalent to our product volume through locally relevant water and sanitation projects.

TCCS globally replenished an estimated 100% of the equivalent amount of water used in their finished beverages as of 2015. The water replenishment rate for Turkey has reached 159% as of 2019

In 2019, TCCC’s global replenishment rate increased to 155%.
Replenishment Programs
These water stewardship programs have been developed considerate of the following objectives:TCCC began water replenishment programs in 2005, and since then have been working with communities, governments and respected third parties to commission and support projects that address local water needs from safe water access to watershed protection and water for productive use.

These water stewardship programs have been developed considerate of the following objectives:
• to improve safe access to water and sanitation;
• to protect watersheds;
• to provide water for productive use;
• to educate and raise awareness about water issues, including engagement on water policy.
In 2019, across CCI’s seven countries in the reporting scope, 11.9 billion liters of water was replenished through the water replenishment projects.

We will continue replenishment programs in 2020 in local regions through community water projects in line with the results of source water vulnerability assessments (SVA) conducted for each of plants.
Pakistan Water Workshop
The 2nd Water Workshop was organized and moderated by Pakistan Business Council’s Centre of Excellence in Responsible Business (CERB) in collaboration with Coca-Cola Pakistan to lead a dialogue on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal # 6 (SDG 6) - Clean Water & Sanitation, with focus on water efficiency – internal and external – as an integral part of corporate water policy.

Several NGOs, Multi Nationals and Media representatives were present at the Workshop. The Guest of Honor was Lahore High Court appointed Chairman Water Commission.

At this workshop, CCI’s crucial role in Pakistan’s economy, how CCI derives its pillars directly from UN’s SDGs, and CCI’s commitment towards water efficiency in Pakistan were highlighted. CCI’s water conservation projects as well as water saving initiatives as a responsible corporation were shared with the invited guests.
Wastewater Management
At CCI, we have high standards around wastewater discharge. “Zero wastewater generation and reclamation” defines our wastewater management approach. We comply with local laws regulating wastewater treatment and discharge in all the operating countries. We also act in accordance with TCCC standards that determine the wastewater pollutant limits for our operations. In many cases, the allowed discharge limits set by TCCC are much lower than the limits established by the local authorities.
In addition to ISO 14001 Environment Management System Audits, all CCI operations are regularly audited in detail by third parties. We monitor our wastewater quality parameters by periodic analyses and reduce our environmental impact by treating wastewater prior to discharge. We also monitor the amount of wastewater discharged per liter of product. We also develop projects to reduce wastewater generated as a result of our activities.
