We believe that business success and sustainability go hand in hand. That’s why CCEP have put a green future at the heart of our vision for the business and our sustainability strategy. We want to grow our business in a way that manages our social and environmental impacts and contributes to a better future.
The solution? A Group wide sustainability action plan – This is Forward – created with The Coca-Cola Company and developed through continuous consultation with our stakeholders, including customers, NGOs and suppliers across all our territories.
Through This is Forward, we are addressing six key social and environmental areas where we know we have significant impact, and which our stakeholders want us to prioritise. In each of these areas we have made a number of commitments that align with the targets underpinning the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Together, they provide a clear direction of how we intend to work with partners across our value chain to build a better and greener future.
There is no going back. This is Forward.
