Coca-Cola Europacific Partners announces its latest carbon neutral manufacturing site in Germany

Uxbridge, Middlesex, United Kingdom

Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) has announced that its Genshagen manufacturing site near Berlin is the latest to be certified as carbon neutral, in line with the international PAS 2060 standard.

This is CCEP’s first carbon neutral site in Germany, and one of six across its markets.

The certification follows a range of significant efforts to drive down emissions at Genshagen, which were reduced by around 70% between 2014 to 2021 following improvements to energy and water efficiency along with recycling.

Genshagen is one of six CCEP sites to be certified as carbon neutral, as part of CCEP’s ambition to reach Net Zero by 2040 and reduce our GHG emissions across our entire value chain by 30% by 2030 (vs. 2019). Sites are selected to apply for certification based on their previous carbon reductions and, once certified, will continue to work to reduce emissions year-on-year in line with PAS 2060 requirements.

The Genshagen site is one of 14 CEP plants in Germany, with around 180 people working to bottle 21 different beverages on three production lines including Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and Fanta.

The news follows CCEP Germany’s recent investment into reusable packaging, with a commitment of 140 million euros for returnable bottles. The investment will fund a new filling line in Lüneburg, Northern Germany, along with a new packaging machine for glass bottles in Mönchengladbach, West Germany, boosting CCEP’s plans to expand the availability of drinks sold in returnable glass bottles.
