Coca-Cola European Partners included in Dow Jones Sustainability Index for fifth year in a row
CCEP will be listed on both the DJSI World and DJSI Europe Indices, and achieved a 100 score in six categories including Climate Strategy, Water Related Risks, Environmental Policy & Management Systems and Social Reporting.
Our continued listing on the DJSI demonstrates the progress we are making on critical sustainability issues across our business, and the importance of our sustainability action plan, This is Forward.
As part of This is Forward we are working on every element of our business – with actions across drinks, packaging, society, water, supply chain and climate.
We know there is much more to do and we continue to work with suppliers, partners and stakeholders – as well as The Coca-Cola Company – to address the key sustainability issues facing our business and society as a whole.
"It’s a huge achievement to be listed on the DJSI for a fifth consecutive year and our commitment to putting sustainability at the heart of our business is more important than ever. There is much more we will do to reach the goals in our sustainability action plan, This is Forward, with a clear focus on climate change, packaging and water management. We continue to take bold action, such as being an early adopter in integrating our action on sustainability into our long term incentive plan, one of the tangible steps we’ve taken to help support a green recovery from the pandemic. Going forward, we are confident in the future of our business, and we are committed to helping society rebuild and recover, creating sustainable value and a better future for people and the planet.”
The DJSI is a sustainability global index, which tracks the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies. In total, more than 3,500 companies were evaluated for inclusion, with just 3 beverage companies making the DJSI Europe Index.
It is based on an analysis of financially material economic, environmental and social factors and is reviewed annually by the S&P Dow Jones Index Committee and RobecoSAM, a specialist sustainability investment company. Companies are listed in the annual ranking if they are best in class within their industry for sustainability.
