DJSI ratifies AC in Sustainability Index


Monterrey, Mexico, November 19, 2020.-Arca Continental, one of the top Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, was ratified for the second consecutive year as a member of the 2020-2021 Dow Jones Sustainability Index for Latin America (MILA), reporting considerable progress in its environmental and social indicators.

The DJSI, in collaboration with Standard & Poor’s Global (S&P), specializes in assessing the environmental, social, and governance performance of companies. They are pioneers in the field and the largest global benchmark for assessing business sustainable practices. The MILA Pacific Alliance index, to which Arca Continental belongs since 2019, groups the highest-ranking companies in the sustainability assessment carried out by S&P Global in Latin America.

“Our determination to be assessed based on the strictest international standards and our progress in several global sustainability indexes, prove our strong commitment to our associates, the community, the environment, and best corporate governance practices, as a fundamental axis of our long-term vision”, stated Arturo Gutiérrez, CEO of Arca Continental.

The DJSI’s ratification comes in addition to the inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index, which Arca Continental has been a member of for 5 years, and other sustainability indexes such as the MSCI Global Sustainability Index and the Sustainable Index of the Mexican Stock Exchange, among others.

The company’s progress in sustainability is a result of the constant search to integrate the institutional efforts in all business areas and markets in which it has presence, under a common strategic framework, with standardized metrics and building stronger links with different stakeholders on the design, execution and evaluation of the most important initiatives.
