Coca-Cola HBC recognised with double ‘A’ score for climate action and water stewardship

Coca-Cola HBC’s leadership in sustainability has again been recognised via an ‘A List’ ranking from CDP for its actions relating to tackling climate change and preserving water security. This is the fifth year in succession that Coca-Cola HBC has received this rating for climate and the fourth in a row for water.

This follows last month’s news that Coca-Cola HBC has been rated Europe’s most sustainable beverage company for the seventh time in eight years by the 2020 Dow Jones Sustainability Index, with its highest ever score.

Marcel Martin, group supply chain director, said: “Being recognised as a CDP ‘A List’ member reflects the significant and demonstrable action we are taking to tackle climate change and safeguard access to water, especially in water risk areas. We believe that building a more positive environmental impact is integral to our future growth and although there is more to do, this recognition tells us that we are heading in the right direction.”

Only 1% of the more than 5,800 companies that submitted data to CDP in 2020 achieved a double ‘A’ score.

This result and the Dow Jones Sustainability ranking build on the recognition for Coca-Cola HBC’s performance from other respected sustainability surveys and indexes such as MSCI ESG, FTSE Russell ESG and ISS-Oekom.
