AC Se Ahiere A Principios WEPs ONU Mujeres


Salta, Argentina, February 19, 2020.-Arca Continental, one of the top Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, has subscribed its adhesion to the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP). These principles are focused on key elements for the promotion of gender equality at the workplace, the market, and the communities.

The adhesion is aligned with 5by20, the global program in which Arca Continental participates in collaboration with The Coca-Cola Company to train and empower 5 million women by 2020. The company is thus seeking to continue to implement programs that uphold the UN Sustainable Development Goals and strengthen the presence of women across its value chain.

Arca Continental, in collaboration with The Coca-Cola Company, has developed training courses for women within its value chain by implementing the programs known as Potencia México, Destapando tu Emprendimiento in Peru, Emprendamos Junt@s in Ecuador, and Potenciá tu Negocio, all of which are aligned with the 5by20 objectives.

With programs such as theses, Arca Continental confirms its commitment to driving growth in the communities where it operates and to foster best practices in gender equality, the empowerment of women, and inclusion.
