WWF May 2024


In Indonesia, more than 25 million people live without proper sanitation facilities, heightening health risks due to poor water quality. Responding to this challenge, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Indonesia (CCEP Indonesia) is taking proactive steps in managing essential water resources—not only for sustainable production but also to support community welfare and environmental sustainability.

Lucia Karina, Director of Public Affairs, Communications and Sustainability, CCEP Indonesia, highlighted the steps taken by companies for water management in a series of dialogue sessions at the 2024 World Water Forum in Bali on Wednesday, May 22 2024. Karina emphasized, "Water is a fundamental need for the environment, society and production processes. As large users, we are responsible for managing these resources sustainably, and we do so with a holistic approach, including operational and supply chain management, collective action, community involvement, and compliance. regulations, and reporting transparency."

Water management initiatives have resulted in significant savings through efficiency measures at manufacturing facilities. In 2023, the company recorded a 25% reduction in Water Use Ratio (WUR) compared to 2019, indicating more efficient water use for each litre of product. This efficiency is achieved through innovation and application of the 3R principle—reduce, reuse, recycle—in the manufacturing process, including optimizing the Clean-In-Place process, which reduces the use of water and cleaning chemicals and recycling water. In line with CCEP's global target for 2030, CCEP Indonesia is on track to reduce WUR by 10% 2030 compared to 2019.

Besides increasing operational efficiency, CCEP Indonesia prioritizes water conservation and sanitation efforts through the WASH program. This latest program will be inaugurated on June 4 2024, in Kutamaneuh Village, Karawang Regency. The program uses an innovative WASH model, combining water, sanitation, hygiene, waste management and community climate resilience interventions in one integrated approach. This step allows the reuse of treated domestic wastewater for gardening activities by local communities. This initiative aims to improve public health and support environmental sustainability. This aligns with CCEP's global commitment to achieve 100% water recovery annually, including through community initiatives.

The dialogue session at the World Water Forum provided an opportunity for CCEP Indonesia to reaffirm its commitment to sustainable water management and its contribution to shaping a more resilient and inclusive future. CCEP Indonesia also calls on all parties to embrace innovation and partnership to protect this vital resource for future generations.
