SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability Report 2017

 

Our road to sustainability at Schweppes Holdings Africa Limited began in earnest during the year 2016 when we conducted a social and economic impact study as the Coca-Cola system in Zimbabwe which included our beverage business – Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited. The realization that our business makes such significant contribution to the economy and affects the well-being of many stakeholders required a more deliberate effort of managing the social, economic and environmental touch points to build a strong relevant business. The year 2017 saw a greater effort at obtaining commitment from the business leadership and key individuals at tracking sustainability metrics based on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals led by the Marketing and Public Affairs function. We had various employees attend training sessions on Sustainability and Sustainability Reporting GRI guidelines facilitated by well- seasoned practitioners some of whom continue to walk alongside us as we increase our thrust to be a sustainable business. Read the full Report
