Coca-Cola remains on track to become ‘water neutral’ by 2020, having last year returned 68% of the water used in its finished beverages to the communities it was taken from. 

An estimated 108.5 billion litres of water was replenished to communities and nature through 509 community water projects in more than 100 countries, according to the drinks giant’s latest water stewardship report.

“At Coca-Cola, water stewardship is a primary focus of our sustainability efforts across our global system,” said The Coca-Cola Company’s chief sustainability officer Beatriz Perez. “By setting and working to meet our ambitious goals, we are effectively and responsibly managing the valuable resource on which our business relies.
