This year, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to navigate the storm and come out stronger than before. Above anything, our greatest achievement for the year was the ability to rapidly protect the safety and wellbeing of our people—our most important asset.
Indeed, we want to recognize all of our company’s employees for their unwavering dedication. Our people rose to the challenge and delivered outstanding service to our customers and consumers, ensuring business continuity and product supply, accelerating transformational initiatives, while supporting communities in need through beverage donation, communication of prevention measures, distribution of medical supplies, and expansion of hospital capacity. Beyond operating continuity, we maintained unmatched market execution, gaining total share of the non-alcoholic-readyto-drink (NARTD) industry across our key markets. We ensured our cash flow liquidity, enabling us to not only continue with disciplined capital investment in key projects, but also pay increased dividends to our shareholders. We tapped the international capital markets to further strengthen our solid financial position, marked by the issuance of our first ever Green Bond— the largest for a Latin American corporation and a first for the Coca-Cola System.
