Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages makes social responsibility and sustainability commitments promoting the full potential of the well-being of our associates, organizations and communities – all for the purpose of advancing sustainable development goals and opportunities which can create a lasting impact in the communities where we work and live.

Individual
Well-Being

Helping the next generation prepare for achievement, promote employment and entrepreneurship fulfillment is a longstanding Coca-Cola commitment.

National Programs

Joining with our fellow Coca-Cola bottlers and The Coca-Cola Company, we provide scholarships that enable young people to become difference makers and leaders of consequence.

Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation

Each year, 150 graduating high school seniors across America are named Coca-Cola Scholars, receiving a prestigious $20,000 annual scholarship based on their impact as students and young leaders giving back to their communities.

Coca-Cola First Generation Scholarship Program

Regional Education Programs

Within our territory, we support high-impact organizations that invigorate communities through education and human development initiatives.

Social
Well-Being

Empowering the success of others is a privilege as well as a responsibility of our company.

Expanding Economic Opportunity – Support for Women & Minority-Owned Businesses

We depend on local businesses to offer our total beverage portfolio and supply us with goods and services.  To promote economic opportunity and job creation on a wide scale, we support the broadest array of economic participation including small businesses and woman- and minority-owned enterprises.  In addition, supporting recovery efforts for small business impacted by natural disasters is a special area of emphasis.

Veterans Empowerment

With gratitude for the sacrifices of men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, we proudly support organizations that work for their well-being in deployment and adjustment to civilian life.

Environmental
Well-Being

Environmental sustainability is an intrinsic part of our organizational culture.  Goals to enhance environmental well-being include: neutral water consumption, improving water use efficiency, preservation of local ecosystems and watershed resources, minimize waste and maximize recycling initiatives, and integrate recycled material into our packaging.

Water Conservation

As a business that depends heavily on water, we integrate conservation and renewal thoroughly into our manufacturing operations.  On a national scale, the Coca-Cola system is deeply involved in water replenishment and watershed protection with five projects located within our territories.  At the community levels, we enthusiastically support organizations that promote water conservation and related initiatives.

Recycling and Littering

Aggressive investment in innovation has advanced Coca-Cola packaging which is 100% recyclable.  We constantly work to increase the use of recycled content and design more resource-efficient packaging.  In all communities, we give strong support to comprehensive and litter abatement recycling organizations and initiatives.

Sustainability Day

Each July, our associates fan out across communities to engage in litter clean up, recycling and tree planting projects to promote environmental well-being.

Volunteerism

Throughout our markets, we encourage associates to contribute time, energy and talents on behalf of strengthening their communities.

Volunteer Day

In October, our associates engage in diverse projects to support a variety of community organizations promoting education, business development, women/veteran empowerment and environmental sustainability.

Holiday with a Purpose

Each December, we partner with organizations to assure that families have the joy the holidays by promoting well-being initiatives including food and toy drives.

Coca-Cola Ambassadors

Ambassadors proudly embody our values in the community, sharing the good that we do with friends, family and colleagues in the communities where we work and live.
