Coca-Cola develop community water partnerships with NGOs

Coca-Cola collaborates with UNDP, USAID, Global Water Challenge, PlayPumps International, CARE, Ocean Conservancy and others to protect watersheds and support initiatives that bring clean water and sanitation to under-served areas.

Since 2005, Coca-Cola has developed significant community water partnerships, with more than 120 water projects in more than 50 countries. It joined UNDP in launching Every Drop Matters, an effort to address water-related challenges in communities across Eastern Europe and Eurasia. The program helps improve sanitation and water quality, install rainwater harvesting systems and educate residents about water stewardship. In all, they have made a $23.75 million commitment to support the project through 2014.

Coca-Cola’s unique partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) addresses community water needs in developing countries around the world and contributes to protecting and improving the sustainability of watersheds, increasing access to water supply and sanitation services for the world’s poor, and enhancing productive uses of water.
