Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, formerly Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP), has announced that two of its manufacturing sites have been confirmed as carbon neutral.

The certification marks a significant development in CCEP’s aim to make at least six of its sites carbon neutral by 2023 and reduce its value chain emissions by 30% by 2030.

The sites, based in Jordboro, Sweden, and Vilas del Turbón, Spain, are part of CCEP’s emission reduction pilot programme, named Net Zero 2040.

Both sites have reduced their total CO2 emissions – Jordboro with a total of 68% reduction per litre of product and Vilas del Turbón with a total of 36% reduction per litre of product. LED lighting has been installed at both sites to reduce electricity use.

José Antonio Echeverría, chief customer service and supply chain officer for CCEP, said: “Driving effective long-term change in our environmental impact is a key priority for us, which is why we have committed to reducing emissions as far as we can before offsetting”.

He continued: “We’re delighted to recognise this significant milestone for CCEP, and the teams who are helping us to accelerate our progress in reducing our emissions across our supply chain. This is a very important moment, and a great example of how our investment and commitment to innovation is helping to bring us closer to our net zero ambition”.

Subject to the international standard PAS 2060 certification, the sites have committed to a further carbon-neutral plan for the next three years.
