For the first time, Coca-Cola European Partners has been awarded a position on the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) 2016 Climate A List.
Every year, this list identifies a select number of companies as global leaders for their actions and strategies in response to climate change. It is referred to by 800 institutional investors with a combined asset base of US $100 trillion as they look to invest in stocks that are managing the risk associated with climate change.
Thousands of companies submit annual climate disclosures to CDP, which is an international not-for-profit organisation that drives sustainable economies. We are one of only 193 companies who successfully made the list of leaders in addressing climate change – and we’re especially proud to be one of only 15 businesses from the UK. Among those listed are companies including Unilever, Tesco, Nestlé, Diageo and Iberdrola.
Our inclusion is based on a submission of Coca-Cola Enterprises’ climate and carbon reduction initiatives in 2015. This includes efforts to measure, reduce and disclose our carbon emissions, to embed climate into our business strategy and to set stretch science-based carbon reduction targets.
Joe Franses, VP of Sustainability for Coca-Cola European Partners said: “We are delighted to be recognised as one of the world’s leading businesses in responding to the global challenge of climate change. This positive result will not stop us continuing to challenge ourselves to set the standard for sustainability both within our industry and beyond.”
