Project Overview

Our water stewardship strategy includes a goal to replenish the water used in our beverages, where it is sourced from areas of water stress, by 2020. In Germany, our SVAs have shown that we operate three facilities in two river basins that are water stressed. In response we have established a water replenishment programme in conjunction with The Coca-Cola Foundation and EUROPARC. Together we’ve been working to dredge and restore the water storage and filtering capacity ...

Our water stewardship strategy includes a goal to replenish the water used in our beverages, where it is sourced from areas of water stress, by 2020. In Germany, our SVAs have shown that we operate three facilities in two river basins that are water stressed. In response we have established a water replenishment programme in conjunction with The Coca-Cola Foundation and EUROPARC. Together we’ve been working to dredge and restore the water storage and filtering capacity of the Alte Elbe Klieken river oxbow. The aim of the project was to restore a part of the oxbow that had become silted up by removing sediment and allowing water from the Elbe River flood flows to refill it. This increases biodiversity and benefits the natural habitat for protected species and general wildlife. It also helps to restore some of the natural flood retention volume of the Elbe river basin.
