FIJI Water Sustainability
- Stems from ambitious carbon-negative campaign
- Marketing misaligned with operational goals of sustainability
- Created negative public image - "greenwashing"
1. Discontinue aggressive carbon-negative “Every drop is green” campaign.
- Attempted to go beyond global best practice with use of controversial carbon forwarding credit schemes.
2. Adopt "Carbon Optimal" approach.
- Unconscionable industry & remote geographical location
- Focus on tangible aspects & social responsibilities
3. Continue developing local sourcing practices through the supply chain.
4. Investigate leveraging of technological advances to further reduce environmental impacts.
Community & environmental initiatives
Negative environmental externalities
Seen as biggest threat to FIJI Waters operations
- Control access to key resource
- Historically corrupt & unpredictable
- Provide barriers to entry & imitation (Coca-Cola Amatil)
1. Counter-offer & monetise current initiatives
FIJI Water foundation, Rotary Pacific & rainforest preservation
- Tourism advertising
2. Establish local advisory committee
- Comprising of key Fijian Ministers & selected Community Chiefs
Drive counter offer, add transparency & rebuild relations
3. Develop a contingency plan for exiting the Fijian market
- Staged amalgamation & re-branding with NZ Water SpringFresh
- Re-condition customers/change expectations & limit loss of market share

High Transaction Risk: Forward Crediting of Ex-ante Offsets
The buyer pays the purchase price for a certain number of offsets that have yet to be produced, and the provider delivers a certificate confirming the purchase.
The successful generation of the agreed number of emission reductions is uncertain.
The customer carries the risk that some or all of the purchase price may be lost, given that offsets might not be delivered.
Transparency in such transactions is likely to be limited because providers are unlikely to inform buyers of any shortfall in the number of emissions ultimately achieved.
Can be for projects that are not expected to deliver the emission reductions for several decades, as is the case with certain forestry projects.
Buyers must pay upfront with no guarantee of the fulfillment of delivery, such transactions carry the highest risk for the buyer.
