As a mom with two children, I’m passionate about sustainability and the kind of world it creates for future generations. In my role for Coca-Cola
, I’m privileged to work with our employees, consumers, customers, NGOs and government partners to bring this work to life.
The Coca-Cola Company’s 2011/2012 Sustainability Report, which launched today, showcases the 2011 successes that we all achieved. This collective effort is important because it allows us to accomplish more together than we could do alone. As you’ll read in the report, we’re improving people’s lives in many ways. This includes promoting well-being through support of physical activity programs and beverage choices; building strong communities by empowering women and providing fundamental needs, like access to safe water; and protecting the environment through aggressive water replenishment, carbon reductions and package re-use. Just as importantly, Sustainability is helping to grow our business, which enables the good we’re able to do.

Bea Perez is Chief Sustainability Officer at The Coca-Cola Company.
