The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation have committed $3.5m to the US Water Partnership (USWP) to advance sustainable water access in African countries facing the greatest clean water challenges.
Bea Perez, the company's chief sustainability officer, made the announcement at the Rio+20 Conference in Brazil where participants work to shape policy on global poverty reduction, social equity advancement and environmental protection.
Also as part of this effort, The Coca-Cola Company will provide $500,000 of operational support to the USWP to bring additional resources to African countries characterized as high-need for clean water and sanitation.
The USWP will also make the best practices from these 'Rain' investments widely available to the global water sector.
