Meet Our Diamond Sponsors
The Coca-Cola Company is the world's largest beverage company. When it comes to protecting the planet, water is a top priority. Clean, accessible water is essential to the health of communities. It's also critical to the ecosystem and indispensable for economic prosperity.
Our long-term goal with water is as simple as it is ambitious: we want to return to nature an amount of water equal to what is used in our beverages and in their production. We recently announced that we met this goal four years early! One way we do this is by supporting watershed projects that conserve and replenish water in local communities. We support 100 such projects across North America. Through partnerships with World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, the U.S Forest Service and local groups, we are helping to revitalize and restore some of our country's most critical freshwater river basins and streams.
In 2016, we announced that our partnership with the USDA, U.S. Forest Service and National Forest Foundation achieved a 1 billion liter replenishment milestone. This goal was achieved through 7 projects at 13 watersheds that provide drinking water to 60+ million Americans. Looking forward, this partnership aims to replenish another billion liters in national forestland watersheds through 2018.
