The Egyptian government announced that it has signed a cooperation agreement with Coca-Cola, presenting the company as a sponsor of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP27) (https://bit.ly/3C2xhCG) that will take place held in Sharm El-Sheikh from November 6 to 18.

In response, Greenpeace US Oceans campaign manager John Hocevar said: “It is disconcerting that Coca-Cola, the world’s largest plastic polluter in the Break Free From Plastic brand audits (https:/ /bit.ly/3SL1mO2), in different countries such as Kenya (https://bit.ly/3UTotaN) and Uganda (https://bit.ly/3UUBdy8) – will host this year’s Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Egypt.

“Coca-Cola produces 120 billion disposable plastic bottles a year, and 99% of plastics are made from fossil fuels, making both the plastic crisis and the climate crisis worse.

They have yet to acknowledge that this is a problem or explain how they will meet their climate goals without ending their addiction to plastic.

This association undermines the very purpose of the event you seek to sponsor.

“Reducing plastic production and ending single-use plastic is in line with the goal of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees.

If Coca-Cola really wants to solve the plastic and climate crisis, it needs to turn off the plastics tap.

Ending Coca-Cola’s addiction to single-use plastic is an important part of moving away from fossil fuels, protecting communities and combating climate change.”
