Damian: We continue to protect our business for the short-term and will continue to invest in levers for long-term future growth, particularly in our portfolio, our people, digital and sustainability.
I would like to thank our people for their extraordinary efforts during the year and our customers, suppliers and all of our stakeholders for their interest and partnership.
We are also deeply concerned and saddened by the conflict and suffering in Ukraine. CCEP has joined the Coca-Cola system in providing support to the humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We are contributing financial aid to the International Federation of the Red Cross and local Red Cross branches, and product donations to refugee centres.
We join others across the world in calling for peace to return to Ukraine.
Sol: We will continue to invest in our people and developing an inclusive and safe environment for people to be at their best. Above all, we are acutely aware of the challenges facing society and we are committed to building a better future – for our business, for people and for the planet. We are making a difference and believe we have the right foundation to drive sustainable growth.
We remain focused on the next stage of our journey and I’d like to thank all our stakeholders and investors for continuing to be a part of it.
