Coca-Cola FEMSA Philip­pines, Inc. (KOFPH) will be in­te­grat­ing more re­new­able en­ergy in its op­er­a­tions as it shifts four more of its bot­tling fa­cil­i­ties to run on re­new­able and clean sources start­ing Oc­to­ber 26, 2018.

The com­pany has signed on the First Gen En­ergy So­lu­tions, Inc. (FGES) and Bac-Man Geo­ther­mal Inc. (BGI) for the sup­ply of elec­tric­ity from re­new­able en­ergy sources to power Coca-Cola’s bot­tling fa­cil­i­ties in Ilo­cos, Pan­gasi­nan, Pam­panga, and Cebu.

This part­ner­ship be­tween KOFPH and FGES will help the lo­cal bot­tling com­pany work to­wards its Global 2020 Sus­tain­abil­ity Goals on En­ergy which is to re­duce the car­bon foot­print of Co­caCola FEMSA’s value chain by 20% against its 2010 global base­line; and in­te­grate clean and re­new­able sources in its op­er­a­tions.

Coca-Cola FEMSA has been work­ing to re­spon­si­bly man­age its en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print in all of its op­er­a­tions across the globe, to­wards sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and oper­a­tional sys­tems that cham­pion en­vi­ron­men­tal wel­fare. The com­pany has been con­tin­u­ously look­ing for ways to har­ness strate­gic, re­spon­si­ble, and ef­fi­cient mea­sures for its en­vi­ron­men­tally-con­scious poli­cies to take ef­fect across its value chain.

To date, ap­prox­i­mately 40% of the elec­tric­ity needs of Coca-Cola’s bot­tling op­er­a­tions are al­ready be­ing sourced from re­new­able en­ergy, which is be­ing con­sumed by six of its man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

In Fe­bru­ary, Coca-Cola’s Sta. Rosa and Can­lubang Plants started in­te­grat­ing re­new­able en­ergy into its op­er­a­tions. The bot­tling arm of Coca-Cola is staunchly com­mit­ted to fur­ther strength­en­ing its sus­tain­able oper­a­tional sys­tems. /
