Zug, Switzerland – 22 September 2022 - Coca-Cola HBC Finance B.V. has successfully issued its first green bond driven by strong investor demand, raising €500m in support of its ambitious sustainability projects.

The net proceeds of the Green Bond will be allocated toward projects that meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the Group’s Green Finance Framework.
