Water use and stewardship

Water stewardship

We regularly study the quantity and quality of local water supplies at all of our bottling plants, as well as environmental, regulatory and other concerns. Based on these assessments, we develop action plans to mitigate risks.

All bottling plants have sewage treatment plants or use municipal water treatment plants. We ensure that the water we return to the natural environment is treated in such a quality that it is suitable for use in agriculture as well as for the support of plant and aquatic organisms. Indicatively for 2018 we have improved by 2.4% the water use index.

All of our platnts has received a GOLD EWS (European Water Stewardship) certification.

Apostoli Nero Program

Since 2006, through the Mission Water program, we help residents of areas with severe water scarcity, such as the Greek islands, to improve their lives, in collaboration with the international organization Global Water Partnership - Mediterranean and the support of The Coca -Cola Foundation. Until todate, 74 projects have been completed.
