Submission to Local Network
Coca-Cola - Global Compact Submission
This letter provides our recommendations for the Local Network in order to support Coca-Cola to comply with the ten principle of UN Global Compact; in particular, Principle 9-“business should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies”; and principle 10- “Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery”.

We truly believe that these two principles should be the main issue to the Local Network.

Also, we could share relevant experience on the sustainability of environment in Australasian Local Network. Although we are not performing the most environmental organization in the Local Network, we firmly wish we could alleviate the destruction of environment. To be a responsible citizen, we try our best to comply with the two principles of UN Global Compact. Providing Natural resources maintenance and sustainable approaches to our stakeholders are our duty.
