Summary

CCE has been honored with a Committed to the Environment Award, a new award from the International Charter Organization (ICharter) that evaluates how major companies around the world are managing their environmental impact.

ICharter recognized CCE for:

  • The company's strong governance structure, with engagement at all levels of the business

  • Cutting carbon emissions by 11.5 percent since 2007

  • CCE's efforts to use more recycled PET and bioPET alternatives (such as PlantBottle)

  • Helping develop technology to reduce energy use in our venders and coolers

  • Using technology to monitor resource use more closely, helping to increase efficiencies  

ICharter, based in the United Kingdom, has developed a set of standards to promote ethical conduct, continuous improvement and excellence in customer satisfaction throughout organizations. Its new Committed to the Environment Award is designed to recognize companies that are leading the way in managing their environmental impact and to use them as examples for other firms to learn from. 

Judges analyzed data to determine whether companies were achieving their objectives and how they fared compared to other companies in the same industry and the same region. Judges also reviewed each company’s environmental strategy and plans. Other companies that were nominated include IBM, FedEx and Barclays Group.
