We are proud to announce that Coca-Cola European Partners has been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the second year running. In total, 3,400 companies were evaluated for inclusion, with just 149 making the European list.

We are listed on both the DJSI Europe and DJSI World Indices, and achieved the highest industry score on the Health and Nutrition, Packaging, Water Related Risks, Human Capital Development and Labour Practices sections of the assessment.

The DJSI is a global index which tracks the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies. 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 only listed in the annual ranking if they are best in class within their industry for sustainability. One year on from forming Coca-Cola European Partners, our listing on the DJSI is testament to the strong progress we have made in putting sustainability at the heart of our business.

Damian Gammell, Chief Executive Officer of CCEP, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for our new company as we work towards sustainable growth. I firmly believe we can grow our business in a way that will make everyone proud – from our employees to our customers to our local communities. Our listing on the DJSI confirms that we are heading in the right direction. There is much more to do, and that’s why we’re working with The Coca-Cola Company to develop a sustainability strategy for Western Europe that demonstrates how we will meaningfully address some of the biggest issues facing society.”
