News Release COCA-COLA EXPANDS U.S. RECYCLING OR REUSE GOALS Sets Target to Recycle or Reuse 100 Percent of its Aluminum Cans And PET Bottles in U.S. Company Receives Recycling Works Award from National Recycling Coalition WASHINGTON, D.C., February 13, 2008 - The Coca-Cola Company today announced a long term target to recycle or reuse 100 percent of the aluminum beverage cans it sells in the U.S. This new objective builds on the Company's previously announced goal to recycle or reuse 100 percent of its PET plastic bottles. "We have made a commitment to ensure the sustainability -- and recyclability -- of our packaging," said Sandy Douglas, president, Coca-Cola North America. "We envision a world in which our packaging is no longer seen as waste, but as a valuable resource for future use." Aluminum beverage cans are among the most recycled consumer products in the U.S -- one out of every two aluminum cans is recycled today. Recycling aluminum is highly efficient and requires 95 percent less energy than creating aluminum from raw materials. It also reduces carbon emissions by 95 percent. Coca-Cola currently uses an average 60 percent recycled aluminum in its beverage cans. Support for Recycling
