At Equatorial Coca-Cola, we know that our success is tied up with that of our local communities and that when they thrive, so do we. That is why, we are committed to create lasting value for our communities, with a special focus on women and the youth, by investing in them and in their future by improving their health and livelihoods, and by cultivating their employability and skills. To do so, we will work to achieve our 2 main goals which will be driven by 5 action plans.
