Lisburn-based Coca-Cola HBC, one of the world’s largest bottlers for Coca-Cola, will provide an insight into how it became recognised as a global leader in sustainability at an event organised by Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber) and System Operator for Northern Ireland (SONI) early next month.
The event, which takes place on 8 June 2018 from 9.00am-noon at Coca-Cola HBC’s Knockmore Hill Plant in Lisburn, is the latest in a series of events that form part of the NI Chamber & SONI Energy Forum which shares best practice on energy efficiency and informs businesses of significant changes ahead.
In 2010, Coca-Cola HBC set ambitious 2020 targets in the areas of water, waste and energy, prioritising environmental leadership across the business, from senior management to factory floor. It has since been named a global leader in the beverage industry by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for a fourth consecutive year. The company’s local achievements have also been recognised with the awarding of ‘Platinum Status’ at the Business in the Community Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Awards in both 2016 and 2017 – and as a past winner of the Sustainable Ireland ‘Best Energy Manager’ Award.
Also speaking at the event is Andrew Robinson, Managing Director of Lisburn’s Boomer Industries, one of the most respected names in the specialist plastics extrusion industry, who will discuss how the company has reduced energy costs across the business.
Representatives from NIE Networks will also provide an industry update on the electricity sector and discuss a number of projects currently being worked on within the Lisburn area.
The event will conclude with a tour of Coca-Cola HBC’s 50,000 square metre facility which set new standards in sustainable manufacturing when it opened in 2008.
