Corporate responsibility and sustainability update from CCE

Posted on 13 Jun 2012 by The Manufacturer

Coca-Cola Enterprises 2011-12 corporate responsibility and sustainability report shows that the drinks manufacturer has continued to grow while reducing emissions.

CCE has a strong history of commitment to its corporate responsibility and sustainability (CRS) agenda.

Updates in the 2011-2012 report show that emissions from manufacturing, distribution and cooling equipment across its UK sites have been reduced by 14% in the last year despite continued company growth.

The report also announced that CCE has invested £50m in green technology at its Wakefield, East Kilbride and Sidcup sites as well as sinking £1.75m into 14 dedicated biomethane delivery trucks.

The report shows that CCE has made some milestone achievements in sustainable accreditations in the last year with its Wakefield facility becoming the first plant in the global food and beverage industry to attain the new ISO 50001 standard for energy management.

Further updates on CCEs achievements in relations to CRS, including recycling, water management and community engagement achievements, can be found here.

Much of CCE’s UK growth in the last year has come thanks to its commitmets to the London 2012 Olympic Games. CCE’s Sidcup plant is the official supply site for all Coca-Cola products being sold at the Games.
