The Coca-Cola Company believes exercise is vital to everyone’s health and well- being. By supporting physical activity and nutrition education programs in the communities we serve, we are working to help provide workable solutions to the problem of obesity and support efforts to increase physical activity worldwide. We sponsor more than 280 physical activity and nutrition education programs in more than 115 countries. In all, millions of people have participated in Coca-Cola– sponsored activities in their communities. We develop programs that support an active, healthy lifestyle in collaboration with governmental agencies, community organizations and health experts. We support research aimed at increasing understanding of consumers’ barriers to and motivation for engaging in physical activity. We are also working to provide more beverage options than ever to fit every lifestyle, including more low- and no- calorie beverages to complement our caloric options.
