Goals and Commitments
2019 Goals
Continue working to build stronger communities through contributing to the economies of the countries we operate in.
Performance
in 2019
Conducted an economic impact study for Kazakhstan in 2019. Pakistan Economic Impact Study is in progress.
Status: Achieved
2020 Goals
Keep monitoring and sustaining the economic yields we create with our investments and operations in the countries of operation.Conduct economic impact studies for the other countries of operation across CCI.
Operating in 10 countries with 780,000 sales points and serving 400,000 million consumers, CCI has a significant footprint across its communities. CCI creates a positive impact both directly and indirectly through investing a certain ratio of its annual pre-tax profit in local economies and communities. Our operations enable 4.1 billion TL of added value in retail business and generate income for 160,000 farmers. CCI operations create about 30,000 direct and indirect employment in its geographies.
Our products are produced, sourced (where possible), distributed and sold locally. A bottle of Coca-Cola creates added value for multiple sectors during its journey from the production line to the consumer. Many industries, including agriculture, energy, production, transportation, distribution, retail, cooling, advertising, media and packaging have roles in the production of a single bottle of Coke.

Our business stimulates a significant volume of job creation throughout the value chain. We contribute to the economic welfare of each community by employing local people, paying tax to governments, paying suppliers for goods, services and capital equipment, and supporting community investment programs.

Economic Impacts of Local Procurement
Local procurement is a significant means for us to contribute to the economies of the countries we operate. For CCI, local means “within the same country”. The proportion of our spending on raw materials from local suppliers is provided in the table below. Although our aim is to keep our local procurement rates as high as possible towards 100%, we are unable to reach these rates considering the market dynamics.
Our major constraint is that the industry footprint on materials we buy is quite limited in markets like Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Nevertheless, as CCI our objective is to supply our needs first from the local markets provided that the materials are available and/or with the required quality features.

* Concentrate is not included.
** There are no approved suppliers in these local markets for some product and service categories.
** There are also no local suppliers available for some of the product categories with high spend. Suppliers are selected and approved by TCCC.
Community Investment
As we run and gradually expand our business, we also strive to create value for each and every member of the communities we operate in.CCI collaborates with local and international NGOs and encourages its employees to take active roles through volunteering. Our goal is to be recognized as a good corporate citizen by all stakeholders. Our community investment projects in 2019 focused on youth & women empowerment, water stewardship and waste management.

Youth Empowerment
Almost 60% of the population where CCI operates is below 30 years of age. Investing in our geographical regions’ young and growing population is critical to the sustainable development of our communities.
3.2.1. Move!
CCI’s award-winning legacy program 3.2.1 Move! has revived enthusiasm for the development of thousands of young people since its inception in 2013 in Turkey. 3.2.1 Move! has initially aimed to transform public schools into habitats that effectively foster students’ physical and personal development through local projects. It was developed and executed by Physical Education (PE) teachers. Until 2018, the project supported 152 PE teachers from 131 public schools in 15 provinces in Turkey, especially by establishing and renovating sports facilities and providing sports equipment for students.
In the following years, 3.2.1 Move! Project evolved with a new framework where youngsters receive substantial help in implementing socially meaningful projects through entrepreneurial activities. Through this project, youth initiatives, specifically focusing to solve specific social and environmental problems, receive mentorship and financial support. The program expanded to Kazakhstan and Iraq, in 2014 and 2015 respectively and reached about 170,000 young people through sports and group activities.
In 2019, 3.2.1 Move! in Kazakhstan aimed to support youth environmental initiatives and collected more than 143 applications from all over the country. The best 10 applications participated two days incubation program where they worked on project management, finance and leveled up SMM skills to promote their environmental projects. Seven projects were selected for the final pitching and two winners were granted.
Youth Empowerment Projects of Azerbaijan
Coca-Cola Grassroots Football Tournament
The project aims at promoting social and physical development of school children, encouraging an active and healthy lifestyle, as well as increasing popularity of football through developing children’s football in the country. Tournament is organized jointly with Ministry of Education and AFFA (Azerbaijan Football Federation Association) and 150,000 children from 1,650 schools from all over the country participated in the project. It was named as the biggest countrywide football tournament in Azerbaijan. The project is planned to continue in 2020.
Olympic Moves Program

The program was launched in 2015 with the collaboration of Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Education and National Olympic Committee of Azerbaijan with the objective of increasing youth sports participation and fostering healthy and physically active lifestyles in communities. Until now, about 115,000 youngsters were involved in six branches of sports, such as handball, biking, swimming, basketball, athletics and badminton from four cities.
New Generation Project
The New Generation implemented in 2019 by Youth Inc. Entrepreneurship Supporting Program, with the financial support of Coca-Cola and the governmental support of Azerbaijan Ministry of Youth and Sports. The project aimed at developing the small and medium enterprises through constant education, mentorship and business development tools in four economical regions of Azerbaijan and covered more than 2,000 participants of which 65% were women.
Women Empowerment
Gender equality and women’s empowerment is at the top of the 2030 Agenda of UN, both through SDG 5 and as a catalyst for achieving the other 16 goals. Fostering women’s entrepreneurial potential is an excellent way for communities to prosper. Women constitute about 39% of the global labor force. Our efforts on this global issue, focus on offering women access to business skills training courses, financial services and connections with peers and mentors. CCI has been a signatory of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP) since March 2015.
My Sister Project
My Sister Project, which has made a considerable difference in the lives of participants, is a part of the global 5By20 initiative launched by The Coca-Cola Company with the goal to economically empower five million women entrepreneurs by 2020. This project, in Turkey, where women labor force participation is in a decline, offers women the platforms where they can improve their business skills and gain competence via training and consultancy programs.
TCCC cooperates with Habitat Association, the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey and Istanbul Technical University. As of 2019 end, 5by20 has reached to 3.2 million women and My Sister Project has trained 20,833 women from a variety of backgrounds; including housewives, engineers, entrepreneurs and university students as well as 500 refugees in Turkey. In 2020, we aim to train an additional 20,000 women with My Sister Program.

UNDP Women’s Empowerment Program
CCI Azerbaijan has been partnering with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) since 2014 on a project to sponsor the economic and social empowerment of young women. The project aims to create opportunities for women and youth to participate in economic and social life, offering trainings like business development, effective communication and presentation skills as well as awareness raising activities to help reduce gender stereotyping. The program also provides support to disabled women who are ambitious to start their own businesses. As part of the project, Women’s Resource Centers have been established in Neftchala and Salyan. Since 2017, a total of 1,650 women have been trained with 350 additional women trained in 2019.
Successful Woman Successful Future
Successful woman successful future program aims at women empowerment in Azerbaijan and increasing their active participation in a professional career. This program was mainly implemented in the touristic regions of Azerbaijan with the aim to enhance women’s involvement in country’s tourism industry. The program is conducted jointly with Coca-Cola and ASAN Volunteers Organization. 1,100 women will be trained within the project by the end of 2020.
Waste Management
Issyk-Kul Coastal Clean-Up Project in Kyrgyzstan
CCI Kyrgyzstan installed 28 recycle bins in most crowded beaches of Issyk-Kul for a world without waste. 2.5 tons of plastic waste was collected and sent for processing to Bishkek. Art installations in the form of fish, palm trees and Christmas trees were exhibited publicly to raise community awareness on plastic recycling.
Environmental Activities in Azerbaijan
Temiz Olkem (My Clean Country) is a project aimed at raising awareness about reducing waste, keeping the environment clean and sorting plastic waste. The project is implemented in partnership with the ADA University, Ministry of Environment and AzEkol. Several projects are implemented within the project such as tree planting, coastal cleanup, awareness raising in schools.
Kollekt App – Recycling Made Fun
Coca-Cola Turkey developed the smart phone application Kollekt in partnership with Nature Conservation Centre and UNDP.  It aims to circulate the waste in nature back into the system through the help of communities. Kemer district was chosen as the pilot region. It is planned to further roll-out the application to Antalya and other cities.
Water Stewardship
By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. Only 71% of the global population used a safely managed drinking-water service - that is, one located on premises, available when needed, and free from contamination in 2017. (Source: World Health Organization)

Access to clean drinking water is also a major problem in our countries of operation.
Consequently, water problems directly affect the welfare of the communities where we operate and the sustainability of our business.

In this sense, The Life Plus Environment Program was initiated with the aim to foster a new approach to land and water management in line with adaptation to climate change and decreasing water resources.
The Life Plus Environment
Program
Two projects conducted under the Life Plus Environment Program are Agriculture of the Future and Harran Night Irrigation. The Program has so far reached over 40,000 people and saved 11.7 billion liters of water on 50 million m2 of agricultural land by the end of 2019.  
In 2019, with the two ongoing projects, the program reached 37,850 people, including farmers, NGO representatives, academicians and the local community by the end of 2019 and helped save/conserve 4.9 billion liters of water.
Konya Agriculture of the
Future Project
The Project was realized in partnership with The Coca-Cola Life Plus Foundation, the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, and the Nature Conservation Centre.

Agriculture of the Future Project has two objectives. The first is to improve the water-holding capacity of soil, ensuring efficient use of land and water. The second is to increase the capacity to use “ecosystem services” in agriculture through direct seeding and windbreaks, without reducing the prosperity of the communities. Approximately 200,000 saplings were planted as windbreakers in the Konya basin.

We reached 27,522 beneficiaries in Konya and helped conserve 1,888 million liters of water in 2019.
Harran Night Irrigation Project
Harran Plain is one of the agricultural production centers in Turkey. During summer months, irrigation is done at high temperatures, which increases evaporation. In order to reduce the amount of water lost by evaporation, it is important to do irrigation in the early hours of the day, in the evening or at night, rather than during the daytime. Reducing water loss will also minimize environmental problems caused by over- irrigation, such as salination, fungal diseases and pollution.
The project aims at disseminating climate smart agricultural techniques, which reduce the costs of the farmers, improve their climate change adaptation capacity and reduce emissions from agricultural production, by providing equipment, trainings and publications to the project participants and short movies reaching a wider society.

We reached 10,328 beneficiaries in Harran and helped conserve 3,098 million liters of water in 2019.
Paani Safe Water Initiative
In Pakistan, we have been running our Paani Clean Water project in collaboration with the Clean Water Trust, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and the Rotary International Pakistan. A report by Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) reveals that 44% of the total population in Pakistan has no access to safe drinking water. Another publication by Pakistan’s Waters at Risk states that 33% of fatalities are due to water related diseases - typhoid, cholera, dysentery and hepatitis.
Addressing the safe drinking water needs of our communities, especially in the underprivileged regions, CCI Pakistan set up its first filtration plant in Malir-Karachi in collaboration with Rotary International Pakistan. Following this, new plants were set up in Lahore and in Rahimyar Khan in collaboration with the Clean Water Trust. Each plant has the capacity to produce over 2,000 liters per hour and serve a population of over 20,000 people daily.
In 2015, CCI Pakistan launched and implemented the Paani – Safe Water Initiative in collaboration with WWF Pakistan. Up to date we provided clean water to approximately 1 million people across Pakistan. On top of 24 plants that were set up over the course of four years, additional four plants in Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Layyah and Tharparkar were launched in 2019 to provide clean water for 100,000 more people.
Extensive community outreach and mobilization activities were conducted in the target areas informing communities about the importance of safe drinking water and its appropriate usage. For 2020, CCI Pakistan planned to invest in four new filtration plants to serve an additional 250,000 people; reaching a total of 32 plants to serve 1,250,000 beneficiaries.

Goals and Commitments
2019 Goals
Keep encouraging volunteering activities of CCI employees.
Performance
in 2019
Conducted volunteering activities in Turkey, Pakistan and Iraq.
Status: Achieved
2020 Goals
Spread the spirit of volunteering activities in all countries of operation.
Encouraging and supporting employee volunteerism is one of the building blocks of CCI’s organizational culture. In 2013, CCI launched the CCI Volunteers Initiative and established employee volunteering clubs to encourage employee volunteering along its operations. These clubs guided employees to organize and jointly engage in social projects. Every year, CCI employees coordinate and actively participate in voluntary programs that serve their communities in a wide range of issues from environmental conservation activities (clean-ups, planting trees), to visiting orphans or children at hospitals; from distributing food to needy families to renovating school facilities, and such.
In 2017, CCI took a very important step and established the CCI Volunteering Program to systematically encourage and support volunteering activities for all its employees. Launched first in Turkey, the program is gradually expanding to other CCI countries. As part of the program, CCI collaborates with NGOs including The Anadolu Foundation as well as the Ministry of Education, universities and local governments. CCI employees can apply to join the Volunteering Program through the company’s intranet platform, indicating their preferred fields for activity.
