*Indicates funding from The Coca-Cola Foundation.

Some UK based research has been funded by the European Hydration Institute (EHI). It is not included here because the EHI is registered in Spain. Coca-Cola Spain will publish its information in early 2016 and this will include details of the EHI funding. We can confirm that from 2010 to 2015 inclusive, Coca-Cola provided €6.6M of funding to the EHI. For further details, visit http://www.europeanhydrationinstitute.org/.

Our Approach to Funding Scientific Research:

For all the health and wellbeing research funding disclosed above, the researchers:

  • are expected to conduct research that is factual, transparent, and designed objectively;
  • are expected to generate an appropriately phrased hypothesis and to conduct research that will answer the relevant questions, rather than favour a particular outcome; have full control of the study design, the execution, and the collection, analysis and interpretation of the data; are encouraged to publish; and are expected to disclose their funding sources in all publications and public presentations of the data.

For purposes of this list, we use the term ‘partnership’ in an informal sense, referring to our relationship with entities based in Great Britain that have received funding from The Coca-Cola Company, one of its branches or subsidiaries, or The Coca-Cola Foundation to support their health and well-being programmes and communications activities conducted from 2010 to 2015.

Items Included in and Excluded from the 18/12/15 Disclosure:

Currency: all amounts are disclosed in GBP excluding VAT. Where amounts have been converted from other currencies to GBP this has been done using an average annual aggregated exchange rate for the year in which the payment was made.

We have made a good-faith effort to disclose all relevant funding in relation to health and wellbeing. If we have omitted something that meets the criteria to be included, we will disclose it in a subsequent update, which we plan to provide every year.
