Recusl Policy

Our Recusal Policy is set out below.

Coca Cola Hellenic Bottling Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, “CCHBC” or the “Company”) are committed to full compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to the conduct of their business, including all economic sanctions laws, regulations, embargoes or restrictive measures (“Sanctions”). It is the Company’s policy that CCHBC and its subsidiaries, as well as its employees, must comply with all Sanctions applicable to them and may not engage in any business that could violate applicable Sanctions (herein a reference to “prohibited transaction” means a transaction that would be in violation of applicable Sanctions). The management of CCHBC directs all Company Personnel involved in international business transactions to understand the basic elements of such applicable laws and to comply with them at all times. Compliance with these applicable laws is a critical component of the Company’s reputation and success. 

The Company takes compliance with these laws very seriously and has adopted this Recusal Policy (“Policy”) and other policies, such as the Sanctions Policy. All Company Personnel, including all CCHBC officers, directors, and employees, as well as employees of any entity controlled or managed by the Company, must review and become familiar with this Policy. The latest version of this Policy is available on the Company’s Intranet and website

Violations of applicable laws and regulations may result in severe criminal and civil penalties imposed against the Company as well as individuals. Penalties may include substantial fines and imprisonment for individuals. Moreover, the Company’s business operations may be disrupted, and its reputation with suppliers, customers, and the general public may be damaged. The Company may impose disciplinary measures, including dismissal, on employees who violate applicable laws or this Policy.

Any employee who becomes aware of any commercial relationship or transaction that may violate any applicable law or this Policy should report to the lawyer in the relevant legal department of the Company (“Ethics and Compliance Officer”) as soon as possible for further guidance or through our Speak-Up! line.
