Business for Social Responsibility recently released a report detailing the evolution of The Coca-Cola Co.'s water management strategy.
The report, " Drinking It In: The Evolution of a Global Water Stewardship Program at The Coca-Cola Company " follows the company's efforts to achieve "water neutrality" across its worldwide operations while facing challenges from global water quality, availability, and access.
By summarizing the journey of The Coca-Cola Co. over five years, this report aims to demonstrate how companies can be proactively involved in water management along their supply chains and within the walls of their own facilities.

The report offers "key takeaways" for companies, such as getting involved in water-related governance and engaging organizations to build internal knowledge and understanding of water issues. The full report includes six sections, including references.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
