Quito, November 11, 2021. Arca Continental, one of the top Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, recently pledged to support a voluntary agreement with the National Government of Ecuador, through the Ministry of the Environment, with the goal of strengthening sustainable production and consumption in its Tonicorp business.

The Minister of the Environment, Water, and Ecological Transition, Gustavo Manrique, as well as other allies and beneficiaries of initiatives implemented in the country, participated in the ceremony for signing this agreement in which Coca-Cola Ecuador and Tonicorp--a company led by Arca Continental and The Coca-ColaCompany--are also involved.

The goal of the agreement is to create shared value with employees, suppliers, customers, consumers, recyclers, the value chain, communities, and all other parties who directly or indirectly interact with the companies.

In addition, the document describes the December 2022 goals to strengthen sustainable production and consumption, in terms of a circular economy, hydrological sustainability, and climate change.

    • Increase by 20% the number of beneficiaries of the inclusive recycling program known as DAR.
    • Collect 60% of PET packaging and include 25% of recycled resin in PET packaging.
    • Replenish 100% of the water used in beverages to nature.
    • Achieve greater efficiencies in water usage, with savings of 11% in the water used per liter of beverage compared to the 2018 baseline; for Tonicorp, generate an efficiency rate in its dairy operation equivalent to savings of 48% compared to 2018.
    • Develop and execute an access-to-clean-water project.
    • Include 3 Carbon Neutral cattle ranches.
    • Reduce the carbon footprint to reach an Energy Usage Rate of 0.316 MJ/Lb in their beverages operation.

that's why we hope that many other companies can join this "Gobierno del Encuentro" in the search of a green productive country".

Also, Mariana Rosalba, Coca-Cola Ecuador General Manager, stated that this is the second volunteer agreement in sustainable production that The Coca-Cola Company signed in Latin America. "With these actions we show our determination to continue with the pursue of local and volunteer goals under our sustainability shared vision with our bottling partners, such as Arca

Continental. All of this under our company's purpose: refresh the world and make a diference".
