We work with the vision of creating long-term value for all our stakeholders. Our operations are aligned with our global vision to create economic value while protecting and preserving the environment and operating in a socially inclusive manner across our value chain.
Our distribution network delivering our products to the market, and supply chain comprising the farmers at the bottom of the chain providing us with our raw materials, are the two critical stakeholders for our value chain. We are working extensively with both ends through promoting sustainable agriculture on one hand while bringing about a positive change in our retail sector through our skill enhancement programs.
5by20TM is The Coca-Cola Company’s global commitment to economically empower 5 million women by 2020 across our value chain and overcome the barriers they face to business success. We provide enabling activities to women through business skills training, financial services and/or assets, and peer-to peer mentoring networks.
MANUFACTURING A NEW FUTURE
Our HCCBPL factory in Sanand, Gujarat, has over 40 per cent women among its employees. These young women perform commendable tasks from operating heavy machinery, like forklifts, to working in the labs. The factory started its operations in 2018 with state-of-the-art technologies and truly boasts of a gender-inclusive environment.
TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
For TCCC (The Coca‑Cola Company), “sustainably sourced” means that ingredients sourced from our farm suppliers meet standards for human and workplace rights, environmental protection and responsible farming management set out in our Sustainable Agriculture Guiding Principles (SAGP). We have worked with our suppliers to help them demonstrate that they meet the SAGP criteria by using leading global sustainable agriculture standards for commodities and products they supply to our company. Our Unnati initiative in India highlights our commitment
towards promoting sustainable agricultural practices.
