COCA-COLA EUROPEAN PARTNERS RETAINS PLACE ON DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY INDEX 2018

We are proud to announce that Coca-Cola European Partners has again been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) – for the third year running.

Our continued listing on the DJSI demonstrates the continuous progress we are making on sustainability issues across our business, less than a year on from the launch of our sustainability action plan, This is Forward.

As part of This is Forward we are looking at every element of our business – with actions across our drinks, packaging, society, water, supply chain and climate.

While we have made progress against all of these areas, we know there is much more to do and we continue to work with suppliers, partners and stakeholders – as well as The Coca-Cola Company – to address the key sustainability issues facing our business and society as a whole.

In total, more than 3,500 companies were evaluated for inclusion, with just three beverage companies making the European list.

We are listed on both the DJSI Europe and DJSI World Indices, and achieved a top score of 100 in Environmental Policy, Management and Reporting; Health and Nutrition; Packaging; and Water Related Risks.

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.

Damian Gammell, Chief Executive Officer of CCEP, said: “We are hugely proud to be listed on the DJSI again this year. With our sustainability action plan, This is Forward, we have clear goals for our business and we’re already making progress in addressing some of the biggest issues facing society. But there is more to come and I am excited about the next phase of CCEP’s sustainability journey.”
