Coca-Cola response to letter from NGOs re remedy mechanism for migrant workers at Qatar 2022

The Coca-Cola Company is firmly committed to embedding respect for human rights in the lifecycle of all global sporting events we sponsor...

... we continue to work with FIFA and the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy to build on Qatar’s development of a regulatory and remedy framework for the protection of migrant worker rights... we recognize that more can be done to ensure respect for the human rights of all workers involved in the Qatar World Cup, including providing effective remedy to those who are unable to access avenues for redress. In this respect, The Coca-Cola Company takes very seriously the issues and recommendations you raise in your letter and its annex, and we continue to engage in discussions with sponsors and FIFA to explore how best to build upon the progress being made in Qatar to further expand access to effective remedies for migrant workers. We believe such next steps must include continued engagement by the Government of Qatar with affected stakeholders, international civil society, the ILO, and FIFA on the most effective and sustainable remedy structures, to the enduring benefit of past and future workers in Qatar. We also encourage FIFA to build on its efforts to date to imbed respect for human rights into the lifecycle of this and future World Cup events, including effective structures to support remedy.
