The Coca-Cola Company and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) today announced the release of their global partnership’s Annual Review. Celebrating a one-year partnership renewal anniversary and reporting on collaborative efforts throughout 2013, the review features progress across freshwater conservation, environmental performance, valuing nature and the convening of additional partners. Work in these areas supports the partnership’s renewal focus to help address the natural resource challenges impacting fresh water.

“Our partnership’s Annual Review is more than a tool to share our progress with the world, but also a record of our work together, one that we can revisit to determine how we can do more, and do better,” said Greg Koch, Global Water Stewardship Director, The Coca-Cola Company. “When work is underway we recognize progress occurring, however it isn’t until a collaborative report is created that we truly realize its extent. The report reinforces our strong belief in the power of partnership to deliver results that benefit our planet.”

The Coca-Cola Company and WWF first announced a global partnership in 2007 to conserve and protect freshwater resources around the world. In 2013, The Coca-Cola Company and WWF renewed their partnership through 2020, and expanded it to more deeply engage across the Company’s value chain; involve additional partners to achieve greater scale and impact; and spark commitments from businesses, governments, and consumers to take action to value, conserve, and protect the planet’s natural resources, with a focus on fresh water.

“In this new phase of partnership, our two organizations are working hand-in-hand to address some of the world’s biggest and most pressing challenges, from global agricultural issues and natural resource scarcity to climate change and freshwater conservation,” said Suzanne Apple, Senior Vice President of Private Sector Engagement, World Wildlife Fund. “But, we know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we are collaborating across borders and sectors with partners from government, multilateral institutions, academia, industry and civil society. This year’s Annual Review highlights real-world examples of these local collaborations around the globe.”
