COCA-COLA HBC GLOBAL BEVERAGE INDUSTRY SUSTAINABILITY LEADER
Coca-Cola HBC Austria will contribute to meeting new Coca-Cola HBC AG water and carbon commitments to reduce water and direct carbon emissions intensity by 30% and 50% respectively, by 2020. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) confirm Coca-Cola HBC as the global leader in sustainability in the beverage industry for the second consecutive year.
Coca-Cola HBC has announced that it intends to reduce water use intensity by 30% by 2020, compared to 2010 and direct carbon emissions intensity by 50% over the same period. The company’s approach to sustainability was endorsed in September when Coca-Cola HBC was named beverage industry leader in the Dow Jones World and Europe Sustainability Indices for the second consecutive year.
Coca-Cola HBC was also ranked eighth out of the top 100 companies listed on the Financial Times Stock Exchange (FTSE 100) Index for its carbon reporting by Carbon Clear — and ranked first within the beverage sector.
“Here in Austria, we will be contributing to meeting these targets by implementing water and energy reduction programmes at our facility at Edelstal. Our partnerships with stakeholders in Austria have been fundamental to our achievements so far and will continue to be instrumental in meeting our new commitments” reflects Susanne Lontzen, Public Affairs and Communications Director Coca-Cola HBC Austria.
The plant in Edelstal is one of the first plants of the Coca-Cola Hellenic Group to be awarded the European Water Stewardship (EWS) Gold Certification in 2014. The plant has just been recertified successfully.
