Environmental overview

Minimising our environmental impact across the whole value chain is a core target for us. We’ve been setting annual improvement targets since 2004 and are working towards ambitious 2020 goals.

Our aim is to continuously reduce the direct impacts of our operations on the environment, as well as the indirect impacts of our suppliers and partners.
Our approach to environmental protection is based on innovation and constantly finding new ways to achieve sustainability, as well as looking to reduce our negative impacts on the environment.

Bearing in mind the most significant impacts of our business on a global level, and in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we are focused on and want to be a leader in the following areas:

  • Sustainable use of water and energy
  • Climate protection
  • Recycling
  • Packaging 

We are fully compliant with applicable laws and regulations on environmental protection. In 2016, as in previous years, we did not receive any penalties on these grounds. In addition, no complaints were made directly to our business.

Environmental policies and standards

We aim to minimise the impacts of our business on the natural environment.  We also implement a series of internal procedures and policies, including:

  • Environmental policy
  • Climate change policy
  • Post-consumer packaging waste management policy
  • Water stewardship policy
  • Fleet safety policy

Our approach involves making sure all our employees understand their responsibilities. Induction training for new starters at Coca‑Cola HBC B-H Sarajevo includes an element about protecting the environment.
