  • CCEP recognised as a global leader in sustainability, highlighting its industry-leading action taken on climate change

  • Representing the top 2% of the 8,400 companies to disclose to CDP marks a major achievement for the business

Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) has been named as one of the top companies included in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Climate A-list for 2019. CDP’s annual assessment is widely recognized as the gold standard of climate-related transparency for global businesses.

Joe Franses, Vice President, Sustainability at Coca-Cola European Partners, said:

“With the threshold for A-list membership increasing significantly in 2019, this milestone moment represents a significant achievement. Our work to understand our climate-related risks, together with our ongoing GHG emissions disclosure has been critical in helping us to achieve this important position.

“We are building a long-term carbon reduction strategy which is aligned with climate-science and a pathway which limits global temperature increase to well-below 2 degrees; all of which demonstrates our clear commitment to tacking climate change.”

CCEP was recognized for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and use 100% renewable electricity. A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess all companies, allocating a score of A to D.
