Two Coca-Cola Hellenic Businesses in World’s Top 3 Sustainable Development Groups

Two Coca-Cola Hellenic Businesses in World’s Top 3 Sustainable Development Groups

Coca-Cola Hellenic operations in Ukraine and Serbia are members of business groups which have been named as being among the top three performers in the world under the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) local network programme.

The UNGC is a strategic policy initiative for businesses which are committed to aligning their operations and strategies in respect of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Currently, there are 80 countries around the globe with local Global Compact networks.

The awards were presented to the Ukraine and Serbia networks ‘in recognition of the outstanding efforts made to share knowledge and experiences in advancing the Global Compact locally’. The network in Japan was the third to be commended.

Doros Constantinou, chief executive of Coca-Cola Hellenic.

“It is hoped that this award will help to encourage many more businesses in Ukraine, Serbia and elsewhere to unite in introducing and establishing behaviour in line with the principles of corporate social responsibility,” says Doros Constantinou, chief executive of Coca-Cola Hellenic.

Coca-Cola Beverages Ukraine and Coca-Cola HBC Serbia are two of the 13 operating units of Coca-Cola Hellenic Group to have founded, participate in or support UN Global Compact Local Networks since their establishment in 2005. Since then, the Group has been named a Notable Reporter by UNGC each year for its annual report on its progress toward the sustainable development of its operations, and of the communities it serves.

In the Ukraine, the Coca-Cola Hellenic business works with 150 other companies and public organisations in the UNGC Local Network. In addition to pursuing overall UNGC goals, in 2008 the grouping signed the ‘Go Green!’ declaration which aims to protect the environment by encouraging behavioural changes in society. It includes research and educational activities, and support for legislation development.

In Serbia, with funding from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the National Bank, as network members, the grouping tackles key issues including social inclusion, anti-corruption, CSR in banking, finance and the environment, as well as an overall CSR strategy.
