Coca-Cola India

Water Conservation: Catching Water where it Falls

In India, Coca-Cola is partnering with the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA), local governments and communities to help combat water scarcity and depleting groundwater tables... All our units across the country are actively involved in citizenship activities which are in line with the local needs of the communities. For instance in Varanasi the unit partnered with the local NGOs and village communities to augment the water resources and facilitate better availability of potable water by repairing & cleaning the community wells, supporting digging of bore wells & installation of hand pumps.
