Coca-Cola HBC named Europe’s most sustainable beverage company
Coca-Cola HBC has been rated Europe’s most sustainable beverage company again, and for the 11th consecutive year has been ranked among the top three beverage industry performers globally.
The news was disclosed in S&P Global’s Annual Yearbook, which confirms the 2021 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), one of the world’s leading sustainability benchmarks. Coca-Cola HBC was also given a Silver Award by S&P Global.
Commenting, CEO Zoran Bogdanovic said, “This is great recognition for the work all our colleagues do every day to build a more sustainable company and future. It is a journey we began many years ago and one we view as fundamental to our future growth. Our commitment in October last year to reach net zero emissions across the value chain by 2040, and the stark realities set out at COP26, remind us of the scale of the challenge we face and that there is much for us all still to do. We are committed to playing our full part.”
This result is consistent with the independent ratings and scores for Coca-Cola HBC from other respected sustainability surveys and indexes, including MSCI ESG, CDP, FTSE4Good, and FTSE Russell ESG.
