Swire Coca-Cola Highlights Green Thumbprint

In line with Swire Coca-Cola’s core belief in nourishing the communities in which it operates, Swire has partnered with several organizations to make a significant environmental impact. The Draper, Utah and Eastern Idaho communities have seen strong results on their recent projects focused on energy conservation and renewable resources.

“We are pleased to announce the progress we have made to protect the environment, and give back to nature the amount of water we use in our operations. It truly is amazing what we can accomplish when we work together,” said Jack Pelo, President and CEO of Swire Coca-Cola.

Through focused efforts to implement sustainable business practices at Swire Coca-Cola’s headquarters and distribution center, the 585,000-square-foot Draper building was awarded the Silver LEED® certification. According to the U.S. Green Building Council®, “LEED certification is an official recognition that a project complies with the requirements prescribed within the LEED rating systems as created and maintained by the U.S. Green Building Council.”

To aid in the safe return of water to communities, Swire Coca-Cola partnered with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Trout Unlimited and The Nature Conservancy to support three crucial restoration projects. The first, located in Utah’s Chalk Creek watershed, was completed in June of 2013. It removed a fish migration barrier, opened up approximately 23 miles of stream habitat and helped conserve water by upgrading an irrigation system for a local rancher. This collaborative effort will restore stream flows of up to 11 million liters to the lower quarter-mile of the South Fork of Chalk Creek.

Located in Swire Coca-Cola’s territory, a second project, on the upper Bear River, will ensure safe passage for Bonneville Cutthroat Trout and restore several miles of river and riparian habitat, providing stream flows during a critical time of the year. Funded partly by The Coca-Cola Company, modernized irrigation diversions and fish screens will protect thousands of juvenile Bonneville Cutthroat Trout that would previously have been trapped in canals. This major project will restore up to 3.86 billion liters of water to the river annually.
