Sustainability is a priority for us and is integrated in the business strategy of Coca‑Cola HBC. The importance we give to this area goes beyond numbers and reports: our colleagues are sustainability ambassadors, they actively promote a responsible lifestyle. Many of them are involved directly in reducing the impact on the environment, are volunteers in environment and community projects. The 2015 Sustainability Report shows our progress in this area, of which we are very proud. But the biggest joy comes from the fact that we see how Coca‑Cola HBC team supports the company’s philosophy: we are, always, what we leave after us. And, just like the headline of the report says: Tomorrow starts today. With us.
