Coca-Cola Hellenic has been recognised for its continuing commitment to embedding Corporate Social Responsibility into its operations across 28 countries by achieving listings on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and the DJSI Europe Index for the third consecutive year. The company is one of only four beverage producers worldwide to be included in the 2010 DJSI World Index, and one of two represented in the DJSI Europe listing. It is the only Greek-based company to be included.

The DJSI indices, updated annually, assess corporate sustainability leadership globally in 57 industry sectors as defined by the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). In 2010 more than 2,000 companies worldwide were subjected to a thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labour practices.

“We are building a company for the future. Sustainable development in every area of our operations is vital,” says Doros Constantinou, chief executive of Coca-Cola Hellenic. “However, we are only too aware that there is no room for complacency, and this being our third consecutive annual listing, generates excitement and a feeling of ‘being’ in our employees which I trust will further strengthen our focus.”

In the DJSI review of the beverage sector, Coca-Cola Hellenic received the top scores in Health & Nutrition, Codes of Conduct/Compliance/Corruption & Bribery, Water-related Risks, Corporate Citizenship and Talent Attraction/Retention.

Coca-Cola Hellenic is one of the world’s largest bottlers of products of The Coca-Cola Company with sales of more than 2 billion unit cases. It has broad geographic reach serving a population of approximately 560 million people.
