Coca-Cola HBC is an active member of the community in each of the 28 countries in which it operates and Kosovo market is no exception.

Our mission requires us to improve quality of life and invest in local communities and so we have integrated corporate responsibility and sustainability into our business. We aim to operate in a responsible way by engaging with stakeholders and communities to support their sustainable development.

Through our core business activities – which generate income for employees, supplier payments and government taxes – our focus remains to invest in community partnerships and projects that address environmental and social issues.

Our community investment programmes focus on four areas: water stewardship, active lifestyles, youth development and emergency relief.

Active lifestyles

As part of our health and wellness strategy, we support initiatives across our operating region that encourage people to be more active. We’ve stepped up our efforts to achieve global objectives in this area for the Coca‑Cola system.

Youth development

Unemployment among young people remains a significant challenge in many markets. We support enterprise educational programmes and offer internships, as well as empower underprivileged young people by providing skills training and access to funding.

We organise summer internship programmes, such as Coke Summership, as well as our management trainee programme.
