The Coca-Cola Company Statement on Diversity
Jan. 2015: As a believer in an inclusive world, Coca-Cola values and celebrates diversity. We believe policies that would allow a business to refuse service to an individual based on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), or any other, status not only violates our Company's core values, but would negatively affect our consumers, customers, suppliers, bottling partners and associates. As a business, it is appropriate for us to help foster diversity, unity and respect among all people. We have long been a strong supporter of the LGBT community and have advocated for inclusion, equality and diversity through both our policies and practices. Coca-Cola does not condone intolerance or discrimination of any kind anywhere in the world.
