Social and environmental responsibility are a top priority in Switzerland as well. In its new sustainability report, Coca‑Cola HBC Switzerland shows, for example, how it is saving 6,000 liters of water every hour, how it has decreased its CO2 emissions and energy consumption by 12% in the last two years and how it has reduced the use of traditional PET.

Revolving around the main attraction, the Coke Jump, the company is launching a charity engagement in the run-up to the Special Olympics 2017.

The 80-year long commitment to Switzerland is also shown in the results of a study which demonstrate the local value creation and thus the CHF 916 million contribution of Coca‑Cola Switzerland to the Swiss economy.
