Since 2006, Coca-Cola Australia has partnered with Landcare Australia via support from the global Coca-Cola Foundation and the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation. Through this long-term partnership, private landholders, Landcare and Coastcare Groups have been supported to protect rivers, oceans and local ecosystems, while also championing community action and education activities that promote water as a key natural asset.
The partnership has supported Coca-Cola employees to engage in various environmental volunteering activities and provided funding for a range of impactful community projects including:
The Farm Dam Restoration Project
In 2022, the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation and Landcare Australia launched the Farm Dam Restoration project- a three-year partnership to transform degraded farm dams across New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. Read more about the project HERE.

From 2018-2021, 32 Coca-Cola Foundation and Landcare Australia Coastal Protection Grants valued at up to $15,000 each were awarded to Landcare and Coastcare groups across Australia, funding a range of environmental, social and educational projects. Read more about the grants HERE.

From 2006 to 2018 The Coca-Cola Foundation funded Landcare Community Watershed Projects, which saw over 10,000 volunteers- including nearly 700 Coca-Cola employees – involved in 40,000+ hours of volunteer work. Close to 600 hectares of degraded land was rehabilitated, with over 40,000 native plants propagated and more than 100,000 seedlings planted.
