The Coca-Cola Foundation

The Coca-Cola Company is the world’s leading manufacturer, marketer and distributor of non-alcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups.

Globally, the Coca-Cola Company is in partnership with WWF to conserve the world’s freshwater resources and deliver on ambitious goals to reduce the company’s ecological footprint. The partnership has helped to conserve seven key freshwater eco-regions, make the company an industry leader in water efficiency and stewardship, and measurably reduced the company’s climate-related emissions. It has also inspired a global movement that is engaging industry and individuals to support the conservation of freshwater ecosystems, species and water resources.

In Australia, the Coca-Cola Foundation has helped fund a WWF project to reduce chemical run-off from sugarcane farms onto the Great Barrier Reef, an ecological and economic national treasure. Project Catalyst is a pioneering partnership between the Coca-Cola Foundation, WWF, Reef Catchments and sugarcane farmers that is using innovative land practices to improve water quality and reduce the impact of pollution on the Great Barrier Reef.
