Make every drop matter
This Case Study examines how a global business, The Coca-Cola Company, works to support the effective management and use of a precious resource - water. It focuses on initiatives used both here in Australia and across the world that aim to achieve efficient water use and management both inside the company's production systems and, externally, in the broader community.
As a result of carefully reading this Case Study, students should be able to:
- Recognise the significance of water to individuals, business and the community
- Identify the use of water in a major production system and strategies developed to effectively manage its use
- Describe partnership approaches to encourage better water management and use in a range of communities.
