Qatar 2022 World Cup: Coca-cola issues position statement
"Statement on FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022," 25 Mar 2021
...we believe that sport has the unique potential to bring the world together and be a force for good. Through our partnerships and continued involvement with events such as the FIFA World Cup, we aim to help foster optimism and unity with the goal of making a positive difference in the communities we serve.. through dialogue, commitment and collaboration across private and public sectors. FIFA and Qatar's Supreme Committee, the organizing committee for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, have taken positive steps to address past challenges and chart a more sustainable path forward.
Specifically, Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy has been working with the International Labour Organization (ILO) to address many of the issues related to the workers' rights in Qatar... includ[ing] establishing a nondiscriminatory minimum wage for workers and signing a landmark Memorandum of Understanding with a global trade union for construction workers...
We expect FIFA to continue working with Qatar and future host countries to ensure human rights, including workers' rights and safety, are respected in sport. We are closely monitoring those efforts and remain committed to engaging with our partners to drive positive change for our communities worldwide.
