The Coca-Cola Company received a strong rating of 85 in the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR)'s Corporate Inclusion Index for the second straight year, the third-highest score attained by Fortune 100 companies.

Fortune 100 companies and HACR corporate members voluntarily submit the data collected for the survey.
