PRESS RELEASE COCA-COLA WINS TWO TOP NATIONAL AWARDS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP AND HEALTH Wednesday 24 October 2012 Uxbridge-based Coca-ColaEnterprises (CCE) and Hammersmith-based Coca-Cola Great Britain (CCGB) have both bagged top awards at today’s prestigious Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Community Partnership Awards. The awards, which took place at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, reward businesses throughout the food chain for being both successful and for making a positive difference. CCE was presented with the top award (gold) in the Environmental Leadership category for its initiative to ‘Reduce the carbon footprint of the drink in your hand by a third by 2020’. CCE’s plan involves working to innovate its packaging, transform PET recycling in Great Britain and to inspire consumers to recycle more. In addition, it aims to demonstrate genuine leadership in the key areas of sustainable packaging and carbon reduction, and also to use the company’s scale to inspire and lead changes at every stage of the value chain. The initiative was selected by the judging panel for being a transformational business model that was also bringing wider benefits to recycling across the UK. In addition, CCGB was awarded a silver award for its StreetGames partnership which works to take sport to the doorsteps of teens in some of the country’s most deprived communities. This partnership came about through CCGB’s commitment as Worldwide Olympic Partner to help deliver a legacy of increased grassroots sports participation and enable more people to be more active, more often. In addition to several other achievements, this partnership has led to engagement with over 110,000 teenagers across the UK in various sports activities.
