At Coca-Cola FEMSA, we seek to generate the economic, social and environmental conditions necessary to operate and grow over time, in harmony with the communities to which we have the privilege to serve. In Uruguay, as in the 11 countries where we operate, we show our commitment to ensure the continuous and integral development of the communities with which we live day to day.
For this reason, one of the guiding principles of our Sustainability Strategy is Our Community. The objective of this axis is to contribute to the generation of sustainable communities through the promotion of three areas of action: Healthy Lifestyles, Community Development and Sustainable Supply.
Our Healthy Lifestyles programs are focused on the promotion of physical activity in people's daily lives and in a complete and balanced nutrition. In Community Development we develop initiatives with communities close to the company to work together in order to improve our social environment. We also promote the protection of human and labor rights in our suppliers, encouraging their development and mitigating their impact on the environment. All these efforts are made in order to positively transform our communities.
