Donations

Our aim is to support programs and events that primarily contribute to the competitiveness of young people in the labour market, and connected to the protection of the environment as well. We also take into account that the sponsored events should reach the largest audience possible.

Coca-Cola HBC Hungary strives for the least possible environmental impact all across the value chain. Our goal is to reduce water and energy use, the waste we generate during our operations, and our greenhouse gas emissions. We strive to continually improve our packaging materials, increase our recovery and recycling rates, reduce the amount of waste in the landfills, and use sustainable resources.

Part of our mission as a responsible company is improve the quality of life and support our local communities. The unemployment of young people is a global problem that affects millions worldwide. Although this rate shows a decreasing trend in Hungary, its level is still quite high. Due to the social weight and importance of youth unemployment, Coca-Cola HBC Hungary wants to support local young people to find work by improving basic skills and developing networks and relationships that helps the employment of young people.
