Inside every bottle of Coca-Cola is the story of a company that understands the priceless value of water, respects it as the most precious of shared global resources and works concertedly towards its conservation worldwide.
As one of the world’s leading company in beverage industry, water quality and availability are vital to our business. Alongside, we also recognize its importance for our stakeholders and the natural ecosystem. This led to our pioneering goal, established a decade back, to replenish equivalent of water we use in our beverages. We not only exceeded this goal but set an exemplary sustainability model. As our understanding of water risks and opportunities continues to evolve, we are refining our approach to strengthen our water stewardship strategies and further align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals
Our Water Stewardship Approach
We understand that to make a meaningful difference, we must focus our efforts beyond the confines of our own bottling plants.
Anandana, Coca-Cola India Foundation works along with local NGO partners, experts and communities to design projects that address water needs and aims at improving local water conditions. It has executed projects that helped create capacities for surface water storage and rejuvenate the water table in water scarce areas. Geographically, Anandana focuses on some of the most water-stressed regions of the country. In water scarce areas with rain-fed agriculture, these projects allow farmers to practice multiple cropping, improve yields and enhance their livelihood.
