Throughout our markets, local communities face significant societal and environmental challenges. We are determined to make a positive difference in our local communities.
Many of our local communities face significant societal challenges, including high levels of inequality, youth unemployment and social exclusion. Many are also increasingly exposed to the most severe impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events, flooding and bushfires.
We are proud to have been closely connected to our communities for many generations – through our local production sites, the drivers who deliver our products or the employees who make and sell our drinks.
Through our community investment programmes and activities, we seek to make a lasting positive contribution within our local communities. We are committed to supporting grassroots community programmes and partnerships, investing in initiatives that promote inclusion and diversity, and equipping people from underrepresented groups with the skills, confidence and employability to succeed in life and employment.
We are also committed to helping protect our local environment through investment and volunteering. Our volunteering policy enables our employees to take part in a wide range of volunteering activities connected to our sustainability commitments, from litter clean up campaigns to charity fundraising events and skills-based volunteering.
Our actions support UN Sustainable Development Goal 1: No poverty, Goal 4: Quality education and Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities.
