Reducing our key environmental impacts...
We have held certification to the Environmental Standard ISO 14001 since 2003. This certification provides a framework against which we have developed comprehensive environmental procedures and monitoring systems.
These processes have allowed us to measure our environmental performance and focus our activities on delivering improvements across key areas such as:
- Energy use and carbon emmissions
- Water consumption and disposal
- Transport and logistics
In 2013 we became a signatory to the Soft Drinks Sustainability Roadmap working in partnership with the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Water and Resources Action Programme (WRAP). The roadmap sets out opportunities for companies to reduce their environmental impact, use resources more efficiently. It is also a means for us to share best practice throughout the soft drinks supply chain.
The roadmap focuses on the following 5 key improvement areas which are closely aligned to our business environmental plans:
- Water efficiency
- Packaging and litter
- Raw materials
- Carbon reduction
- Waste reduction
Every year we report on our most recent corporate responsibility activity within our Annual Report. To learn more about "our environment" progress please access our Annual and interim reports page.
More information on the Soft Drinks Sustainability Roadmap is available on the British Soft Drinks Association website.
