Sustainability in Practice

Sustainability in practice

We gradually incorporate sustainability and social responsibility into each fields of our business.
We pay special attention to three of the six main Group sustainability focus areas: 

Beacons of our sustainability:

  • Environment protection, World Without Waste 
  • Balanced nutrition and lifestyle 
  • Our communities, #YouthEmpowered

Corporate sustainability and social responsibility are indispensable elements of the corporate culture of Coca‑Cola HBC. Our approach aims at maintaining business success and value creation for the long run while being in line with our sense of responsibility for our society and environment, and our basic values.

Our sustainability goals are closely connected to our business goals and are incorporated in our general strategy, while they focus on our people, those who ensure sustainable growth for Coca‑Cola HBC.

As a member of the Coca‑Cola Hellenic Group, we contribute to the fulfilment of many Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) through our initiatives and key agenda.
