Coca-Cola Hellenic, one of the world’s largest bottlers of products of The Coca-Cola Company, has been included in the 2012 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) for the fifth consecutive time, listing it as one of the world’s top-ranking beverage companies in sustainability. Coca-Cola Hellenic is one of only four companies in the beverage industry to merit a listing on the DJSI World Index and just one of two to be named in the DJSI Europe listing. It is the only Greek company to be included in either index.

Dimitris Lois, chief executive of Coca-Cola Hellenic, comments: “Listing in the DJSI for the fifth year in a row demonstrates how important sustainability is to Coca-Cola Hellenic. It is an integral part of our strategy that plays a critical role in adding value to all our stakeholders. The overall improvement in our scores is testament to our determination to constantly seek higher standards of excellence.”

The two Dow Jones indexes assess 2,500 of the world’s largest companies (measured by free-floating market capitalisation) based on an analysis of their economic, environmental and social performance. Following an evaluation of a range of general and industry-specific issues only the top 10% are accepted for inclusion.

The overall score for Coca-Cola Hellenic in 2012 was 79%, 2% up from last year. In the DJSI Europe Index, Coca-Cola Hellenic achieved top scores in the beverage sector in Customer Relationship Management (94%), Health & Nutrition (84%), Environmental policy/management systems (93%), Climate Strategy (93%), Environmental Reporting (88%), Packaging (100%), Social Reporting (86%), and Talent attraction/retention (68%).

In its continuing pursuit of its sustainability goals, Coca-Cola Hellenic has a long-standing commitment to the UN Global Compact, has consistently been listed in the FTSE4Good Index since 2000, and engages in partnerships with more than 200 stakeholder organizations at local, national and international levels.

Coca-Cola Hellenic has broad geographic footprint with operations in 28 countries serving a population of more than 570 million people.
