We strive to be a force for good – for people and for the planet. Ensuring our people’s and our communities’ wellbeing and safety is our priority.
Our success is due to the passion and commitment of the 33,000 talented people who work with us. Our vision is to be an organisation where everyone’s welcome to be themselves, be valued and belong.
We are committed to building a diverse workforce, and believe this commitment will enable us to take positive action for people, better represent the communities we serve and support our sustainable business growth.
Our people strategy, [email protected], sets out our common culture and values: being valued, being well, being rewarded, being developed, being connected and being inspired.
Our people’s physical and mental wellbeing remain our priority and we promote this in our workplace. We also continue to embed a strong health and safety culture through our systems, processes and programmes.
Our actions support UN Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender equality and Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth.
- Inclusion and diversity
We’ll foster a diverse and inclusive culture in our business and make sure that women hold at least 45% of our management positions, and that a third of a workforce will be women by 2030.
By 2030, 10% of our workforce will be represented by people with disabilities.
We will support the skills development of 500,000 people facing barriers in the labour market by 2030.
We aim to be an organisation where people feel they belong and where our inclusive culture drives innovation and performance, creating a trusted and successful business that our colleagues, customers and communities admire and support.
We believe that encouraging diversity of ideas, thinking and experience leads to better ways of working and better business results.

volunteered by our employees to support local community projects
In 2022 our warehouse in Luxembourg celebrated seven years without accidents at work. The warehouse is committed to weekly safety meetings and monthly safety checks on site, and safety rules are clearly displayed and widely communicated.
In 2021, we ran a year-long campaign aimed at breaking barriers that stand in the way of equality in the workplace. As part of this campaign, we delivered a panel conversation about gender-based stereotypes; carried out workplace audits on disability and LGBT+ matters to identify best practices for implementation; and featured colleague experiences of working successfully across generations at CCEP.
In 2021, we invested €10 million in safety projects, including upgrades and innovations. We’ve improved workplace equipment and infrastructure, including loading bay safety, machinery safeguarding, segregating people from vehicles and reducing noise levels.
In July 2021, floods in the Walloon Region of Belgium caused enormous damage. Together with The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Foundation, we donated to the Belgian Red Cross to provide hot meals to flood victims. We also ran a campaign via our Chaudfontaine brand, including a €750,000 donation to help rebuild two local schools. More than 300 CCEP employees in Belgium volunteered to help the community respond to the disaster.
