Describe the objective of the promotion.
In 2011, in the face of environmental change and a shrinking Arctic habitat, Coca-Cola sought to help ensure a future for the polar bear. Coca-Cola pledged $3m to World Wildlife Fund’s efforts to establish a lasting Arctic refuge. We created Arctic Home to increase awareness of the polar bear’s plight and encourage additional donations from the public.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
To symbolise the commitment, for the first time in history, the iconic red Coca-Cola can was turned white. 1.4 billion white cans generated instant global awareness as well as a bit of controversy. But despite the tension it created, it brought attention to the polar bear’s plight and drove them to There, visitors were invited to donate, explore a virtual Arctic landscape featuring real-time weather conditions and track actual polar bears in the largest 3D flash site to date. The idea was amplified in television and cinema, while outdoor and online advertising invited the public to contribute via text donation.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
For decades, the polar bear has been a holiday tradition and beloved member of the Coca-Cola family. The holidays are also a time when Coca-Cola gives back and encourages consumers to do the same. But given that holiday timeframe, Arctic Home had to compete for people’s attention with a number of worthy causes, including some of the most well-known non-profits and charitable organisations in the world. We sought to inspire people and generate support for the cause, empower them to donate and provide them with the tools to advocate on behalf of the effort to reach an even broader audience.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
