The Coca-Cola Company (Coca-Cola), the world's largest beverage company, which provides products such as juices, ready-to-drink teas and coffees, ranks third out of 38 companies, disclosing more information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers across all themes. Compared to 2016, the company improved its score by four points. This is because the company discloses that it is co-chairing the work stream on responsible recruitment of the industry initiative AIM-PROGRESS, which involved awareness raising on this topic among suppliers and industry peers. It further discloses that it trained suppliers in different countries on forced labor and responsible recruitment. Notably, Coca-Cola has the second highest score on the theme of remedy and is the only company to disclose several examples of remedy provided to workers in its supply chains. Additional steps the company could take to address forced labor risks in its supply chains, include strengthening its disclosure and practices on the themes of purchasing practices, worker voice, and monitoring.
