Coca-Cola Goes Green

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Coke is going forward with their plans to turn all of their 10 million vending machines worldwide hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) free by 2015. The beverage company sells everything from soda and juice drinks to water which is all stored cold in vending machines by HFC. The surprising stat here is that the 10 million Coke vending machines release 15 millions tons of green house gasses, which accounts for nearly 40% of the company’s carbon footprint.

It is no secret that HFC are filled with greenhouse gasses that are partly to blame for global climate chance. At the rate we are going HFC are expected to make up 28 to 45 percent of carbon emissions by 2050.
