COCA-COLA EUROPEAN PARTNERS RETAINS PLACE ON DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY INDEX 2017

Coca-Cola European Partners (ticker symbol: CCE), the world’s largest independent Coca-Cola bottler by net sales, and a major European consumer goods company, has been listed on the 2017 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for the second year running.

 

The company is included in the DJSI Europe and DJSI World Indices, and this year achieved the highest industry score on the Health and Nutrition, Packaging, Water Related Risks, Human Capital Development and Labour Practices sections of the assessment. In total, 3,400 companies were evaluated for inclusion this year, with just 149 making the European list.

 

Damian Gammell, CEO of Coca-Cola European Partners said: “This is a fantastic achievement for our new company as we work towards sustainable growth. I firmly believe we can grow our business in a way that will make everyone proud – from our employees to our customers to our local communities. Our listing on the DJSI confirms that we are heading in the right direction. There is much more to do, and that’s why we’re working with The Coca-Cola Company to develop a sustainability strategy for Western Europe that will meaningfully address some of the biggest issues facing society.”
