Coca-Cola, Vodafone, Marks & Spencer Win Environmental Reporting Awards

Coca-Cola Enterprises has won the top honor in the CR Reporting Awards 2011, taking home the Best Report award for its corporate responsibility report titled “Committed to 2020: Shaping a Sustainable Future in Europe.”

The company was a runner-up last year in the awards, run by Corporate Register. This is Coca-Cola’s sixth annual corporate responsibility and sustainability report, and its first as a European business. Coca-Cola also won in the Best Carbon Disclosure category.

This year’s runners-up for Best Report are Vodafone Group and Marks and Spencer. IT giant Hewlett-Packard, awarded the No. 1 position in 2010, fell to seventh place this year.

  1. Georgia and Atlanta (where Coca Cola’s world headquarters located) are certainly woeful when it comes to sustainability efforts, reducing energy and waste, and enacting Green policies. Atlanta’s the #9 “Dirtiest American City” by TRAVEL+LEISURE, and Georgia’s #7 “worst” state in the American State Litter Scorecard, for poorest public spaces cleanliness and environmental conduct. Coca-Cola, through its powerful lobbyists, has said “no” to container statewide deposits laws that reduces both littering and energy use. As a result, no U.S. Southern state has enacted such laws to date.

  2. Dubious awards…given track records for many of these companies, esp. Coke and Shell.
    It seems to be consistent now that the past actions are no longer relevent, or matter. But again, these are awards for a report, not actions or reality…
