The Coca-Cola company: "Replenish" report

untitled.jpg The Coca-Cola Company is committed to the good health and well being of communities around the world. One vital way that our Company is contributing to communities is through our water stewardship programs. Water, our most critical ingredient, is fast becoming one of the world's most pressing global challenges. It is estimated that by 2025, two-thirds of the global population will live in water-stressed areas. In June 2007, The Coca-Cola Company made a significant aspirational pledge to return the water we use in our beverages and their production. For us, this means reducing the amount of water used to produce our beverages, recycling water used for manufacturing processes so it can be returned safely to the environment, and replenishing water in communities and nature through locally relevant projects. This report focuses on the "replenish"aspect of our Company's goal. Our commitment to replenish means that on a global basis we aspire to give back by supporting healthy watersheds and sustainable community water programs to balance the water used in our finished beverages. We will do this by working on a wide range of locally relevant initiatives, such as watershed protection, expanding community drinking water access, rain water harvesting, reforestation and agricultural water use efficiency.
