In determining the companies to be appreciated at the event, The Iconomics selected CCEP Indonesia as the recipient of the 2022 CSR & TJSL Awards through several data search methods, including using activities that have a positive impact on the environment, social, economy, health, climate and education published by media or sustainability reports related to company’s CSR activities.
“This is a proud moment for us, because as we know, the past two years have been tough and full of challenges for all of us. Nevertheless, CCEP Indonesia will continue its commitment being a responsible business by prioritizing the health and safety of employees, as well as contributing to the community and the environment, while ensuring the sustainability of the company," explained Lucia while receiving the award. "Of course, our achievements cannot be separated from the collaboration of all parties with a similar vision, and that is together with communities and Indonesia."
