In 2015, Coca Cola HBC Italia completed the EWS (European Water Stewardship) certification process for its two plants in Nogara and Rionero in Vulture.

EWS sets criteria for evaluating water sources and quality, monitoring and mitigating the potential impacts of withdrawals and discharges and for protecting HCVs (High Conservation Value Areas). Our performance level was fully compliant with all the main requirements and 90 percent of those considered minor, meaning we could be awarded Gold level certification.
