Water and environment protection

In addition to reducing the water we use in our bottling plants, we help protect local watersheds. Working together with government bodies, NGOs and others, we support conservation activities and raise public awareness.

We are working with An Taisce and Tidy Northern Ireland to conserve rural beaches around the island of Ireland. In 2009, 44 rural beaches were rewarded with Coca-Cola Green Coast Awards for cleanliness and water quality results. Our activities include:


• Sponsorship of the Green Coast Awards each year, including a special group merit award
• Provision of product for groups around the country undertaking clean ups at their local beach
• Employee volunteer clean up days at beaches close to our sites

Coca-Cola HBC Ireland also partners with An Taisce each year to support the National Spring Clean campaign which encourages local communities to take a hands-on approach in improving their local environment and combating the problem of litter.
