BAKU 2015 EUROPEAN GAMES
Coca-Cola became an important part of one of the most historic days of Azerbaijan. The 1st European Games was held in Baku in June 2015 with the participation of 6,400 athletes from 50 countries and more than 2,000 media staff from all over the world. As the Coca-Cola system, we again showed our unity, believed in the spirit of these games and supported it with 360` IMC approach. Out of 8 main sponsors, Coca-Cola was the most shining one during the games.
Coca-Cola School Cup is long-term partnership between Coca-Cola and Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan to organize School Cup and League U13 tournaments. Annually more than 200,000 children from all over Azerbaijan, including Nakhichevan, are taking part in the tournament. The tournament is held among 7th and 9th graders. The main goal of Coca-Cola School Cup is to promote active and healthy lifestyle and support the development of Azeri football. The important feature of the project is that there should be at least one girl in each participating team.
Considering the fact that, gender diversity is one of key drivers for our sustainable growth and with the aim of encouraging women’s leadership and empowering women in the workplace and community, we have initiated Women’s Club comprising each female employee in ACCB. Herewith, as ACCB we wanted to build a professional environment where female employees can demonstrate and develop their capabilities, collaborate with each other, talk to bring creativity and innovation to their work alongside with active integration to local community by CSR projects.
PLANT A TREE GIVE A GIFT TO LIFE
“Plant a Tree. Give a Gift to Life” is implemented in a partnership with ADA University and the Ministry of Ecology of Azerbaijan Republic. By 2020, the partners will plant 100,000 trees. The project aims to benefit the ecosystem and promotes a massive afforestation and reforestation in designated areas of the country to preserve and replenish fresh water resources in Azerbaijan which are under stress due to soil erosion and deforestation.
COSTAL CLEAN UP
On September 19, environmentally minded people in Baku, Azerbaijan, gathered to clean up the coast of Novkhani beach. Over 450 volunteers, including employees of the Coca-Cola System, representatives of governmental and non-governmental organizations and other businesses came together within the framework of the International Coastal Cleanup Day to rid the Baku Bay from litter and debris. This action aimed to preserve waterways and oceans from waste, which is also the objective of the International Coastal Cleanup Day Campaign.
