We carry out and support many initiatives to promote educational plans, recycling, and local events.
Promoted by Coca‑Cola HBC Italia, the Fabbriche Aperte (Open Factories) educational project aims to raise student awareness on the importance of recycling, reusing of waste materials and proper management of resources and - starting from its 5th edition - for the first time, supports students in school-work programs.
Since 2013, the initiative has reached over 11 milion people, directly involving over 416,000 in fun educational workshops and plant visits. We have also released 7,750 educational kits, produced with the support of CONAI, containing useful information about the importance of recycling, creative reuse of waste materials and protecting our planet’s resources.
