Message from the President & CEO:
In our march towards being a sustainable growth company, I am pleased to present to you Coca-Cola India's Environment Performance report for 2008. The report captures our efforts on environmental stewardship over the years 2004 to 2008 on the key parameters of water stewardship, sustainable packaging performance, energy management and climate protection and waste management.
We at Coca-Cola have always believed that a sustainable business thrives only amidst sustainable communities. This simple approach is at the core of our business operations worldwide and in India. We recognize that we need to be part of the solution on global issues that threaten the communities we serve and therefore need to be focused on sustainability. This report outlines some of our efforts towards the preservation and protection of the environment and towards the conservation of natural resources.
We are aware that a lot still remains to be done in areas of environmental stewardship and community development. By making this information available to you, we are hoping that you will join us in our journey by offering your comments, feedback and suggestions. Your suggestions and feedback will also help us publish a more comprehensive report for the year 2009. I invite you to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your views. The steps that we take today both individually and collectively will pay off for future generations.
