The Coca-Cola Company is an actor in the Coalition's HFC initiative.
In January 2014, the Coca-Cola Company announced it had installed its 1 millionth HFC-free cooler using natural refrigerant in the marketplace, preventing the emission of 5.25 million metric tons of CO2 over 10 years. This milestone marks significant progress in the Company’s effort to phase out the use of HFC refrigerant in Coca-Cola dispensers, vending machines and coolers globally.
Together with its bottling partners, the company established a goal that all new cold drink equipment will be HFC-free by 2015. Achieving this goal will prevent the emission of more than 50 million metric tons of CO2 over 10 years, an amount equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 10 million passenger vehicles.
