ESG

Sustainability underpins every part of how we do business

We have a strong sustainability agenda and we are taking action across a number of identified areas. Our ambitious plan in Europe, launched in 2017 in partnership with The Coca-Cola Companyplaces sustainability at the heart of our business strategy. 

At the end of 2020 we announced our ambition to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions across our entire value chain in Europe by 2040. 

We want to grow our business in a way that manages our social and environmental impacts responsibly. As Coca-Cola Europacific Partners we will go further together on sustainability.

Net zero

Action on climate TCCC CCEP banner

We are set to accelerate the decarbonisation of our business by reducing emissions across our entire value  chain in Europe - including scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions - to become a net zero business by 2040, in alignment with a 1.5˚C pathway and the Paris Climate Agreement

Action on climate
Absolute GHG reduction

We’ll reduce absolute GHG emissions across our value chain by 30% in Europe by 2030 (vs 2019)

This target has been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) as being in line with a 1.5˚C reduction pathway as recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). 

GHG reduction (vs2019)

Engage with suppliers

We’ll ask suppliers to set their own science-based GHG emissions targets and use 100% renewable electricity by 2023

Our focus will be on reducing emissions across our entire value chain – from the raw ingredients we source and the packaging we use, to the drinks we sell. However, we can’t achieve this alone. Over 90% of our GHG emissions are related to the activities of our suppliers, so we will be supporting them to:

  • Set their own science-based GHG emissions reduction targets by 2023
  • Use 100% renewable electricity across their operations by 2023
  • Share their carbon footprint data with us

Key sustainability targets in Europe

Low and no calorie drinks

We’ll aim for 50% of our sales to come from low or no calorie drinks by 2025.

Recyclability & collection

We’ll make sure that 100% of our packaging is recyclable or reusable by 2025.

We’ll collect 100% of our packaging by 2025, including support for well-designed deposit return systems.

Recycled PET

We’ll ensure that at least 50% of the material we use for our PET bottles comes from recycled plastic by 2023 and we’ll aim to reach 100% in the future.

This is Forward is an ambitious plan that sets out three action areas on drinks, packaging and society, and three supporting actions on water, climate and supply chain, with a series of clear, measurable targets for each of these areas.
