Coca-Cola Hellenic is one of the world's largest bottlers of products of The Coca-Cola Company with sales of more than 2 billion unit cases. It has broad geographic reach with operations in 28 countries serving a population of approximately 560 million people. Coca-Cola Hellenic offers a diverse range of ready-to-drink non-alcoholic beverages in the sparkling, juice, water, sport, energy, tea and coffee categories. Coca-Cola Hellenic is committed to promoting sustainable development in order to create value for its business and for society.
Coca-Cola Hellenic is committed to issues that surround safety. Safety recording, accident investigation, loss prevention, risk assessment, etc. are all standards of the Company and clearly described processes, which make up an organic part of the Quality System that has existed ever since Coca-Cola Hellenic was formed. As such Coca Cola Hellenic commits to the European Road Safety Charter for the next three years.
The necessity to establish a dedicated policy for fleet safety came as a result of the fleet safety complexity. Since the Company covers 28 countries and more than 20 thousand assets, we have created a system which gives clear picture about fleet safety performance and supports future developments. We have changed vehicle selection criteria and included safety as an important aspect - which has been an extremely large improvement in the Russian market. Thanks to safety initiatives taken by the Company we have improved substantially the fleet safety in Nigeria.
By sharing processes and related results from the initiatives Coca-Cola Hellenic has taken across the 28 countries of operation, we aim to contribute to improvements of road safety overall.
The most relevant fleet accident indicator will be the crash rate = nr of vehicles involved in crashes out of 100 vehicles and Mileage Driven between Accidents (MDBA)
Our actual accident records are the following (FY 2009 results):
Accident indicators (covering entire fleet, including trucks):
Crash rate group average: 27.26 (cars involved in crashes out of 100)
MDBA (mileage driven between accidents): 116,217 km
