Commitments and progress refer to Europe unless otherwise stated.
We are committed to being a leader in sustainability in the beverage industry. We set high performance targets for ourselves and believe it is important to report on our progress. Our sustainability performance is assessed by a range of major sustainability indices, responsible investment analysts and other external organisations.
This includes direct engagement via questionnaires, in-depth interviews, desk research and analysis of our publicly disclosed data and sustainability information. Ratings allow investors to assess and track our environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance against objective industry benchmarks. We use the results to help us strengthen our management systems and sustainability reporting processes.
Here are highlights of our latest rankings, awards and recognition:
