Coca-Cola HBC Named Industry Leader in the 2014 Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Coca-Cola HBC, the world’s second largest bottler of products of The Coca-Cola Company, has been named the industry leader amongst beverage companies in the 2014 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). This is the seventh consecutive year that Coca-Cola HBC has been included in the indices and the first year it has led both the World and European indices.

Dow Jones Sustainability Indices assess over 2,500 of the world’s largest publicly traded companies on financially relevant economic, environmental and social factors. Following an evaluation, the top 10% of companies within each industry are selected for inclusion.

Coca-Cola HBC was ranked first in the beverages sector out of 30 companies in DJSI World and 10 companies in DJSI Europe. The company’s overall score was 89%, up from 81% last year, and it achieved industry-best scores across the environmental and social dimensions, and more specifically in the areas of health and nutrition, supply chain management, environmental policy, environmental reporting, social reporting, talent attraction and retention, and human capital development.

Dimitris Lois, Coca-Cola HBC CEO says: “We are delighted to be recognised as an industry leader by this renowned benchmark of corporate sustainability performance. Our substantial improvement this year confirms how committed we are to the sustainability agenda. It remains a key strategic priority for the business and our focus will be on making further progress in order to maintain our leadership position.”

Coca-Cola HBC’s sustainability programmes are long-term investments, building value over time for the business and communities where it operates. Consumer health and wellness is a key issue for the business and its communities as well as minimising its environmental impact, developing sustainability in its value chain and creating value for its communities.

Coca-Cola HBC has a broad geographic footprint with operations in 28 countries serving a population of approximately 585 million people. Coca-Cola HBC offers a diverse range of ready-to-drink non-alcoholic beverages in the sparkling, juice, water, sport, energy, tea and coffee categories.
