Goal 3: Ensure Healthy Lives

3.4)   By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being

The Coca-Cola Company is committed to help people get moving by supporting physical activity programs in every country where it does business. The Company supported more than 290 physical activity programs in nearly 125 countries around the world through 2013. 

3.8)   Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all

The Coca-Cola Company committed with The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2010 to work together to apply business knowledge to maximize the ability to get vital medicines and medical supplies to the people who need it most. Through “Project Last Mile”, The Coca-Cola Company is using the Coca-Cola system’s logistic, supply chain and marketing expertise to help improve health systems across Africa in a sustainable way.  Through this partnership, government agencies are learning how to more efficiently deliver vital drugs, medicines and medical supplies, how to better market the availability of these supplies, thereby creating demand, and how to maintain coolers to ensure the medicines and vaccines are stored at the correct temperatures. Project Last Mile’s success is dependent on extensive collaborations between the Coca-Cola system, government, academia and other NGOs. Critical partners include the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), The Global Fund, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Collaboration with Yale University’s Global Health Leadership Institute, Accenture Development Partnerships (ADP) and the Global Environment & Technology Foundation (GETF) is also critical to the initiative’s successful execution.

By the end of 2013, 5by20 had enabled more than 550,000 women in 44 countries around the world. Coca-Cola is working across the Golden Triangle of business, government and civil society to bring its unique areas of expertise, reach and skills to make progress in this important area.

Goal 6: Ensure Water & Sanitation

6.4)  By 2030, substantially increase water-use efficiency across all sectors and ensure sustainable withdrawals and supply of freshwater to address water scarcity and substantially reduce the number of people suffering from water scarcity

Between 2005 and the end of 2013, through 509 community water partnership projects in more than 100 countries, partnering extensively with governments, other industry, communities and civil society,

Coca-Cola balanced an estimated 68 percent of the equivalent water used in our finished beverages (based on 2013 sales volume), for a total of approximately 108.5 billion liters of water replenished to communities and nature. In addition, with partners across government, civil society and the private sector, more than $300 million in replenish programs has been invested globally.  More information can be found at http://www.coca-colacompany.com/water-stewardship-replenish-report/.
