At Davos: Coca Cola on Top Sustainable Corporations List

Last week, Coca Cola (alongside BHP Billiton?!) appeared in the “Global 100: Most Sustainable Corporations” list released at the World Economic Forum in Davos. 

Has Coca Cola, which received significant criticism for the sustainability of its businesses in years past (some university campuses even stopped purchasing all Coca Cola products), turned around? 

If it IS Greenwash, they’ve been very thorough, in the same week Coca Cola was also awarded the Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development from the World Environment Center.

This could be the real thing though with John Brock, Coca Cola’s CEO, in an interview with Knowledge@Wharton declaring that “Sustainability is no longer Niche” and highlighting his thoughts on High Schools removing Soda Machines and his firm’s new fleet of Hybrid Delivery Trucks.

What do you think? Can a company that uses up so much of the world’s sugar and corn to produce its beverages and then ship these drinks thousands of miles to their consumer be a Leader in Sustainability?

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

    In December 2012, she was half way through her reconstructive procedure and has since become a symbol of hope for women suppressed by the Taliban, urging women to
    “never give up and don’t lose hope,” that “what happened, it’s part of me, part of my life and its all the time in my mind and with me. They use high-end techniques, innovative surgical methods and state-of-art machines to deliver excellent result. Women are more likely to undergo plastic surgery but some males also undergo this medical procedure if they think they need to have some major changes in their body.

    The case for RFID is well documented within specific business scenarios,
    but the benefit to the consumer are still little known apart from Londoners with their
    Oyster cards and Parisians with their Navigo cards. Gas BBQ grills and
    stereo cockpit speakers plus showers on large swim platforms make an awesome adventure.

    Could I ask the Sheriff for trespass tickets and reveal my
    pettiness.
