Coca-Cola Philippines reaffirmed its commitment to providing clean and safe water to the country’s vulnerable communities with a ceremonial visit today to the P4WatER project, which launched in 2021.

As a beverage company, Coca-Cola also depends on water to operate our business,” said Tony del Rosario, Coca-Cola Philippines President. “This is why responsible water management remains a top priority for us at Coca-Cola. Our continuing partnership with USAID, MUAD-Negros, and the local government is a step toward our vision of a world where there is water security for our business, communities, and the environment where we operate, source ingredients, and touch people’s lives.”

“USAID is proud to be part of this initiative that advances the protection, conservation and rehabilitation of watersheds, including here in Bago City,” said USAID Philippines Mission Director Ryan Washburn. “Watersheds are critical for sustaining clean drinking water and livelihoods for the many families that depend on them.”
