Among the initiatives advanced by Keurig Dr Pepper are those related to advancing a circular economy, reducing emissions and building sustainable supply chains.

The progress made toward supporting corporate goals focused on the environment, supply chain, health and well-being, and community involvement is among the highlights of a corporate responsibility report from Keurig Dr Pepper Inc.

"We recently elevated Drink Well. Do Good., our longstanding corporate responsibility approach, to be KDP's company purpose. Our purpose plays a critical role in guiding how we go about delivering positive impact for our stakeholders through our strategic framework and business priorities," said CEO Tim Cofer. "This year's report highlights bold actions and strong partnerships to advance our multi-year agenda."
