Maximize the value of our shared water resources by being responsible of our use of water inside the business and by helping our communities to access and better manage their water resources.

Water objective

The beverage and bottling industries depend on water for their production. Therefore, as part of these sectors, the effects of climate change on these important resources are of significant concern for us.

For this reason, under our ESG Impact Strategy, we have committed to maximize the value of our shared water resources by being responsible in our used of water inside the business and by helping our communities to access and better manage their water resources. We aim to do this through two main goals for 2030 which will be driven by three different action plans

  • Goal #1

    Improve water use efficiency by 20% by 2030

    water drop

    Water efficiency projects

    Continue optimization of our operational processes to reach 1,2L/L beverage in all our plants.

  • Goal #2

    100% local replenishment of water used in our beverages by 2030

    Access to clean water

    Facilitate access to safe and drinkable water to the communities around us.

    water treatment

    Water Treatment Plants

    Leverage our WWTP to recycle and reuse water whenever possible, to give back treated water to local communities

PNUD Project

In order to support the country after the devastation of the fires during the summer of 2021, ECCBC, in partnership with The Coca-Cola Company and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is carrying out a project that aims to drive torrential correction works in the region of Bouira in order to limit the damage linked to floods and to set up dams and water reservoirs in order to retain the flows and limit their destructive effect on ecosystems.

In order to pursue our goals to improve water use efficiency and use 100% local replenishment of water in our beverages by 2030 and preserve the watershed we conducted a feasibility study to further reuse our treated effluent.

In 2021, as part of the Coca-Cola worldwide workshop, ECCBC alongside our Coca-Cola System partners, developed a Water Maturity Matrix tool to be able to evaluate the degree of maturity when using our water resources.

In this workshop, we also create a Water targeting estimator. This tool allows us to set targets using science-based data versus the industry standards.

RAIN Project

Millions of people across the world lack access to safe drinking water and to major sanitation infrastructures. This issue is particularly stark in Africa, and in response, we have joined hands with our partners to improve access to water and build sanitation infrastructures across our territories.

One of the projects that Equatorial Coca-Cola has invested in is the Coca-Cola Foundation’s Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN), which aimed to improve access to clean water for 6 million people in Africa by 2020. Through RAIN, we have invested in water infrastructures, in order to bring clean water closer to at-risk populations. Even though the project formally ended in 2020, some initiatives were ongoing throughout 2021.

Rain Project

To date, through 23 projects across nine of Equatorial Coca-Cola’s countries and 1,029 communities, RAIN has reached:

572,498 people

With improved water access, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)

118,631 women and youth

Empowered and helped to improve the management of 1,177 hectares of land

2,139 ML of water

Returned per year to communities and nature

17,660 people

In 2021, two projects were completed in Algeria (UNDP) and Sierra Leone (CRS) to reach 17,660 people, benefit 9,796 women and youth, and improve the management of 6 hectares of land in these two countries.


Shared value, shared future

ESG Impact Strategy 2030 Pillars

Our new strategy is based on 6 key pillars where ECCBC has a significant role to play and can deliver the most value. Each of the pillars has been built with multiple commitments, action plans and initiatives to achieve our 2030 Sustainability Goals.
