Ida Fauziyah, President Director of Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Indonesia, Jorge Escudero, Representative of G20 EMPOWER Advocate Indonesia, Lucia Karina, and representative of CCEP Indonesia's female employee, Tresna Zahara.
CCEP Indonesia's commitments to gender equality include:

- Protect employees from violence, sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace.
“Our commitment to developing a diverse and inclusive culture in business is aligned with one of the pillars of 'This is Forward', the sustainability action plan of the Coca-Cola Europacific Partners group of companies, namely Action on Society and the Sustainable Development Goals ( SDGs) from the United Nations (UN). We are determined to contribute positively to society by promoting diversity and inclusivity, as well as economic development in CCEP Indonesia's work environment and local community," said President Director of Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Indonesia, Jorge Escudero. "We are very happy that today we can again strengthen the company's commitment to support the efforts of the Ministry of Manpower of the Republic of Indonesia in encouraging the gender non-discrimination movement in the workplace through the Gender Equality Commitment, we hope that in the future this can also be an inspiration for other industries to take part in the achievement of the movement."
CCEP Indonesia's initiatives in building diversity, equality and inclusion in the workplace
Over the past few years, CCEP Indonesia has invested in building a work environment and culture that supports diversity, prosperity and inclusion. This is in line with the gender non-discrimination movement encouraged by the Indonesian Ministry of Manpower to eliminate inequality in the labor force participation rate (TPAK), wage gaps, and gender-based discriminatory treatment.
In order to realize this commitment, CCEP Indonesia continues to empower and support the development of female employees' capabilities, as well as improve gender equality in senior management roles and talent to fill other job vacancies. CCEP Indonesia seeks to increase the level of representation of women, especially in the vanguard, as well as develop various training and competency improvement programs for women leaders, as well as create a 'Women Warriors' community to increase the involvement of female employees in the company.
Over the past few years, CCEP Indonesia has implemented various leadership training programs for female employees, such as: Female Acceleration and Empowerment (FACE), Achieve Your Best Self (AYBS) and the Women Leading program. From these training programs, the representation of female employees at CCEP Indonesia reached 11.5% in December 2021, of which 29.6% were at the managerial level and 25% of them were at the executive management level.
CCEP Indonesia also ensures a protection program for female employees, in particular to prevent violence, sexual harassment and discrimination in the work environment, through:
- Whistleblower – a secure and confidential complaint channel to report improper conduct, not in accordance with state law or company regulations, violence, harassment and discrimination. This channel is managed by an independent party.
- IDN Suara Perempuan – an internal communication channel that aims to increase the engagement value of female employees and become a reporting channel or complaint when faced with issues in the work environment.
- Anti-Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Committee – an internal forum formed by the company with the aim of conducting socialization on anti-sexual harassment and discrimination activities. This committee is a representative of all functions in the company and becomes the official reporting channel for acts of sexual harassment and discrimination.
CCEP Indonesia's commitment to upholding workplace safety, developing employee capabilities, diversity and inclusion, and employee welfare, has received recognition from external parties, one of which is the HR Asia Best Companies to Work For in Asia – Indonesia Edition 2021 & HR Asia WE award. CARE: Most Caring Companies 2021. The award is for companies across Asia with best HR practices and demonstrating a high level of employee engagement and an excellent work culture.
“We are taking concrete action to break boundaries and encourage people from different backgrounds to work and grow. The proudest moment for us is seeing employees who have succeeded in climbing higher career paths in the organization because they are continuously supported by training and empowerment programs that maximize their potential,” explained CCEP Indonesia Director of Public Affairs, Communications & Sustainability, Lucia Karina. "We certainly hope that CCEP Indonesia's diversity, equality and inclusion initiatives can have a positive impact on all Indonesian people and the nation."
