About the Report:
We, CCIPL, have prepared the Sustainability update 2015/16 report in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 sustainability reporting guidelines including the Food Processing Sector Supplement (FPSS). While developing the report we
have given due considerations to the GRI content and quality principles in order to be able to present a fair and a balanced picture of our performance to our stakeholders. In this report all of the quantitative data covers the calendar year from January 1 to December 31, 2015, unless otherwise stated. So that readers have more up-to-date information, we also provide some information about decisions and events that took place in early 2016. We have also prepared a supplementary information report which
is meant to serve as an accompaniment to the Sustainability update 2015/16 report. This supplementary report (available on CCIPL’s website) provides additional information and data on the sustainability aspects covered in the sustainability report.
The boundary considered for various sustainability aspects includes CCIPL, HCCBPL, independent franchise bottling partners and Anandana, our foundation for CSR projects. The precise reporting boundary and entity-wise coverage for all aspects is presented in the ‘Aspect boundary’ section of the supplementary information report.
We have also sought external assurance for the report towards which M/s DNVGL Business Assurance India Private Limited (DNVGL) was engaged. DNV GL carried out the independent assurance of this sustainability report based on the GRI principles, Assurance Standard - AA1000AS (Type II moderate) and ‘DNV GL Verisustain’ methodology (Moderate level). The report complies with GRI G4 guidelines in accordance ‘core’ and is aligned to our global sustainability framework – Me-We-World.
