This recognition has placed us among the top 2% of the 3,300 companies that were assessed.

Our suppliers are critical partners in the sustainable success of our business. This allows us to make an impact beyond our own operations to improve the environment and society.

As one of the big players in FMCG, we know that we can make a real difference in driving down emissions across the supply chain by collaborating with sustainable suppliers that stand with us in this process. Thus, we are hardly working to achieve to our 2020 commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of the drink in your hand by 25% compared to our 2010 baseline.
