Coca Cola FEMSA & FEMSA reponse

Author: Coca Cola FEMSA & FEMSA, Published on: 24 April 2017

Coca-Cola FEMSA is committed with the sustainable development of its associates, communities and the environment. Based on this premise in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas we operate according with the legal framework and under internal processes to guarantee efficient water use. Additionally we run programs to replenish to communities and the environment  the same amount of water we use in the elaboration of our beverages. Through our National Reforestation and Harvesting Program in alliance with Coca-Cola Mexico Foundation and Pronatura, we have planted in the last 8 years more than 205,000 trees in the state of Chiapas and installed 19 water community tanks, 38 roof-water collectors, 45 backyard orchards, 15 fruit orchards, 35 wood saving stoves and 2 outdoor gyms to directly benefit the communities close to our operation and in the State of Chiapas.
