Joe Franses, Vice-President, Sustainability, Coca-Cola European Partners discusses science-based targets, their supply chain challenges and how collaboration is key to success

  1. As part of the Science-Based Target commitments, Coca-Cola European Partners set a 50% reduction target for core business operations and 35% for the value chain (by 2025 – using 2010 as a base-year). Why is it important that you made them and how did you convince the business to embrace them?

  2. How are you engaging your suppliers to help you take action? What have been the biggest hurdles and how are you overcoming them? 

  3. Looking at the collaboration aspect, how are you working with others within the industry to drive greater impacts? 

  4. Right now the political agenda is rather fractured – is this hindering your ability to take action? What policies would help you achieve the targets?

  5. And finally, what do you see as being the big issues to watch for in the coming 12-18 months?
