Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Holdings Inc. (CCBJH) today announced that it has secured a position on CDP’s 2023 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard for the second consecutive year. This recognition represents the highest level of achievement attainable from the Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) survey, which is conducted by the international non-profit organization, CDP.



SER assesses a company’s supply chain engagement towards climate-change issues based on their response to CDP's Climate Change Questionnaire, which is divided into four areas: governance, targets, Scope 3 emissions, and value chain engagement. CDP has selected a group of companies that rank among the highest in the world for supplier engagement in 2023. CCBJH was selected as an A List company in CDP’s 2023 Sustainability Survey. This rating represents the highest recognition attainable in the CDP annual corporate survey on sustainability (Note 1).


CCBJH is aligned with the Paris Agreement and has set science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. The company is actively reducing GHG emissions throughout its supply chain with the aim of achieving virtually zero emissions by 2050. Under its mid-term non-financial goals, called CSV Goals, CCBJH aims to reduce GHG emissions in its entire value chain in Japan by 50% in Scope 1 and 2, and by 30% in Scope 3 by 2030 compared to 2015 levels. To meet these targets, the company is implementing a range of initiatives. CCBJH’s bottling plants are promoting the use of renewable energy sources such as hydroelectric power, and are purchasing "Green Power Certificates" to ensure electricity is sourced from natural energy sources, verified through third-party certification.


We continue to make efforts in resolving social issues through our business activities and aim to realize a sustainable society.
