What are the key issues that coca-cola is facing by deciding to deny the allegations?

 In 750-1,000 words 
TOPIC: The Coca-Cola CSR Issue
Coca-Cola started it business in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. John Stith Pemberton was a local pharmacist who made the syrup that was teamed with soda water and sold at a local pharmacy.
By 1920 the company started expanding internationally. They first sold their products in Canada and the Caribbean, then moved into Asia, Europe, South America, and the Soviet Union. In 2005 it was pronounced the largest manufacturer and distributor or non-alcoholic beverages in the world.
In 2007 they launched a CSR campaign called “Live Positively.” The campaign established seven core areas where the company sets itself measurable goals to improve the business’s
sustainability practices. The core areas are: beverage benefits, active healthy living, the community, energy and climate, sustainable packaging, water stewardship, and the workplace. They also formed a partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and became a member of the CEO Water Mandate. Water became the company’s more important concerns.
Every year Coca-Cola publishes a report called ‘The Coca-Cola Company Annual
Report’ that comprises the company’s activities in that year. The reports describe their initiatives in water preservation and community development. Since 2011 they also publish a report every 2 years called ‘The Coca-Cola Company Sustainability Review’ that are verified by a third party, the FIRA Sustainability Ltd which gives Coca-Cola moderate reliability of the information too.
Against these efforts, Coca-Cola had several conflicts and veracity of their efforts were questioned. In 2003 the Indian NGO Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) published a report that provided evidence of the presence of pesticides in a sample of a dozen Coca-Cola and PepsiCo beverages sold in India. The a level of pesticides found was exceeding European standards. The report gained large publicity and media attention.
The Indian government started an investigation as well and carried out their own tests. The tests did show pesticides in the water, however the amount did not fail European standards. Therefore the conclusion was, that Coca-Cola did not violate any national laws.
Coca-Cola denied the accusations as well as accusations related to having over-exploited and polluted water resources.
In 750-1,000 words respond to the following:
How might Coca-Cola’s CSR efforts affect its reputation and bottom line?
What are the key issues that Coca-Cola is facing by deciding to deny the allegations?
Describe whether Coca-Cola violated any of the NCA Credo policies? Provide examples.
How should have Coca-Cola use strategic communication to effectively deal with the problem?

If you have gone to a doctor’s appointment within the last 20 years, you have likely signed a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) form. HIPAA protects a patient’s mental and physical health information and allows the patient access to records. Under the law, the patient can also distribute those records to other parties. As with mandated reporting, there are exceptions to the HIPAA protection, such as in cases of abuse or public health threats.
you learn more about HIPAA regulations and reflect on your exposure to HIPAA as a patient.
watch the Southside Community Services video listed in this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on how HIPAA informs the interaction between the social worker and the client.

As the impact of trauma on clients becomes a greater focus, the profession is also considering the secondary trauma that social workers experience due to interacting with client trauma. Social workers need to understand boundaries and triggers and ensure sufficient self-care to balance needs (van Dernoot Lipsky & Burk, 2009). Otherwise, they will not be able to sufficiently care for their clients. Part of self-care can include the practice of self-compassion, where social workers provide themselves with the same empathetic attention they devote to their clients.
In this Discussion, you provide self-care strategies you may use during your social work education and as you progress through your social work career. You also consider the importance of self-care, especially as it relates to trauma work.
