During this Vision Dinner Sigrid Verweij, Director Public Affairs, Communications and Sustainability at CCEP will take us through CCEP’s sustainability roadmap to become carbon-neutral by 2040, its practical implications, and challenges.

Information
Topic

When it comes to sustainability in the world of multi-national corporations, it is often difficult to make real change happen. This is however not the case at Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Netherlands (CCEP). Due to its decentralised structure individual subsidiaries have a lot of freedom to plot their own course. CCEP has its own factory and is responsible for its own supply chain (including recycling policy). It uses that to be a leader in bringing positive change in society, transitioning into a more circular supply chain and working towards a carbon-neutral future, both inside the factory and out.

Sigrid Verweij, Director Public Affairs, Communications and Sustainability at CCEP, is one of the executives that is pushing sustainability forward. Her strategy is predicated on tackling two challenges at once: reducing waste and the carbon footprint. This is done through multiple avenues, from bio-fuel powered transportation to 100% recyclable packaging of bottles, and by reducing sugar contents of the products.
