EMISSION REDUCTIONS AND CARE FOR THE CLIMATE

Less emissions in our operations
 
We are committed to reducing direct carbon emissions in our operations by 30% and that 50% of the total energy used in our plants will come from renewable and clean sources by 2025. We have implemented an internationally recognized environmental management system (ISO 14000) and an energy management system (ISO 50001) in all operations.    
16.25 g CO2/litre of beverage produced    
 
In 2020, we reduced the CO2 per litre of beverage produced to 16.25 g, i.e., to half of the value for 2018. We are continuing in this trend (2019: 23.59 g; 2018: 32 g)  
100 % of electricity from renewable sources   
 
We purchase 100% of the electricity for the production plant in Prague from renewable sources.
0.37 MJ/litre of beverage produced    
 
Thanks to innovations and the modernisation of production lines at the Prague plant, we have reduced energy consumption to 0.37 MJ/l. At the Natura plant, we consumed 0.28 MJ/l in 2020 . This has meant a reduction in consumption to less than half since 2008.

We lend energy-efficient refrigerators to our customers. They are 57% more economical, use new coolants and do not contribute to global warming. Our iCoolers saved 72 tons of CO2 in 2020. We only monitor NOx emissions in the operation of the boiler room, which is only used in the Czech Republic as a backup source in the event the external heat supply is interrupted.

Our customer service is based on direct contact in individual premises.  We used 480 cars for administrative and commercial purposes in 2020. 


Consumption of 5.93 l/100 km    
 
We are attempting to achieve efficient travel and therefore the most efficient consumption by our cars. In 2019, it was 5.67 l/100 km, which is 10% less than in 2012. Consumption by cars in 2020 rose to 5.93 l/100 km with regard to the change from diesel drive units to petrol ones.  
New fleet of CNG service vehicles    
 
Being aware of the impact our activities have on the environment, we endeavour to find sustainable solutions to current climate issues in every department. CNG won not only because of its properties, but in particular because of its environmental impact.  

Prague vans have already saved 13.2 tons of CO2   
 
We have been using a total of 10 new Mitsubishi hybrid vehicles to make deliveries in Prague since December 2019. In connection with the shortage of drivers, we decided to create our own team of 12 drivers instead of using external carriers. By February 2021, our vans had travelled 200,000 km and saved 13.2 tons of CO2. 

What we plan by 2021:

Environmentally-friendly transport should, in 2021, bring a further reduction in CO2 emissions by up to 11% for vehicles up to 3.5 t. In addition, according to available information, CNG cars are more environmentally-friendly than electric cars. Within 3 years, we plan to replace the rest of the car fleet with a more environmentally-friendly alternative. Thus, by 2030, its emissions will fall by 55% in comparison with 2017.

We support projects dealing with climate change


One of the most successful acceleration programmes dealing with climate change is the Climate Challenge; its second year took place in 2020 and we had the opportunity to be its partners through The Coca-Cola Foundation.

What is the Climate Challenge? 

It is a year-round acceleration competition.  All the selected projects from the Czech Republic and Slovakia that pay attention to the causes or impacts of climate change, environmental topics or the circular economy obtain comprehensive support over the course of a year. Examples of support could be, for example, individual mentoring, which takes place throughout the acceleration in the form of workshops on specific topics (such as law, marketing, finance and accounting). The projects also include mastermind meetings, where people can learn the other participants’ know-how and share their experiences and contacts. They include meetings with prospective investors and corporate partners of the programme, such as Veolia, The Coca-Cola Foundation, Heineken, Nestlé and the Circular Economics Institute. The Climate Challenge transformed into an international project with the new name ClimAccelerator in 2020.  


Petr Vítek, Impact HUB

“The climate crisis is probably the largest global problem that humanity has ever faced. It is also a huge business and value opportunity to transform our economy and our relationship to the countryside. We only have hope for success if the changes at the top in the field of regulation and self-regulation in the public sector and large companies are supplemented by functional innovation from below. And this is what the Climate Challenge is for.”
