Brazil Atlantic Rainforest Waters Program (3,000 Hectares)

Commitment by

The Coca-Cola Company

In 2007, the Coca-Cola Company committed to establishing the Brazilian Rainforest Water Program which focuses on mitigating the degradation of Brazilian riparian forests, monitoring water quality, and improving biodiversity in fragile ecosystems. This five-year, $13.5 million commitment will restore 3,000 hectares of forest with native species, reduce greenhouse gases, and remove more than 300,000 tons of CO2 over five years (three million tons over 30 years), while improving the health and vitality of major watersheds. This project will demonstrate how global partnerships can ensure local access to clean safe water, strengthen local communities, and combat climate change.
