On the occasion of World Environment Day, Coca-Cola reiterated its commitment to protecting natural ecosystems across Pakistan as part of its sustainability agenda for which Water, Waste, and Women are the three core focus areas. Over 10 million beneficiaries have been positively impacted by the company’s interventions through water stewardship, 85 percent of plastic waste is collected according to a formal study conducted by WWF and 200,000 women have graduated under the empowerment programs in the most underserved communities.
This commitment was reaffirmed in Islamabad on June 5, 2021, through a joint discussion between Coca-Cola and Chairman, Capital Development Authority, for a pledge of making Margalla Hills a litter free area for its visitors through a donation of segregated waste bins, and exploring innovative solutions to make roads out of recycled plastics. The commitment will follow up with a partnership with the park authorities to steadily improve awareness and waste collection convenience for those visiting nature trails with families. In the Northern areas of Pakistan, famous for its trails, an estimated 2 million people visit annually.
The segregated waste bins will be strategically placed along these trails to ensure collection and to protect the natural environment from waste-related hazards.
While speaking at this occasion, Fahad Ashraf, VP and General Manager for Pakistan and Afghanistan region at The Coca-Cola Export Corporation said, “Conserving our natural ecosystem starts with educating the public about the importance of throwing waste where it belongs, and most importantly making it easy for the public that visits parks to throw waste in the right category of waste bins. It may be a small step but it can go a long way in making a material impact on our environment.”
A recently led Plastic Scoping Study conducted by Coca-Cola & WWF shows that over 70% of Pakistani households don’t segregate their waste because they are unaware of recyclable packaging, which consequently highlights the need for awareness around environmental stewardship programs that involve waste management.
