Coca-Cola Beverages Florida Cares About Our Environment
As Floridians, we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. From our delivery trucks to eco-friendly bottling technology,
Coca-Cola Beverages Florida aims to take care and treasure our environment.
Reducing our Carbon Footprint
- Our company fleet consists of five hybrid trucks. A no idling policy is also in place to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Further, governors are installed in each truck to limit the moving speed of the vehicle, which can also lower carbon dioxide by 1,100 metric tons.
- Our alternative fuel vehicles include hybrid-electric, liquid natural gas and compressed natural gas vehicles
- We are training our drivers in eco-driving techniques such as minimal breaking and early gear changes through our custom-designed Smartdriver program. This program helps improve driver performance and reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Since 2008, there has been a reduction in the weight of Coca-Cola’s packaging of glass bottles, aluminum cans and PET plastic bottles by 8%.
Coca-Cola’s Plant Bottle is the first ever fully recyclable PET plastic beverage bottle made partially from plants. The material looks and functions just like traditional PET plastic, but has a lighter footprint on the planet and its scarce resources.
