TO KINOPOLIS GROUP AT CINEEUROPE 2023
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ, MAY 2023 – CineEurope is pleased to announce that the premiere of the Sustainability Award will be bestowed upon Kinopolis Group at this year’s convention, to be held from 19-22 June at the Centre Convencions Internacional Barcelona (CCIB) in Barcelona, Spain. The award will be presented as part of the CineEurope Awards Ceremony hosted by the Coca-Cola Company on Thursday, 22 June. Accepting the award will be Dr. Gregory Theile, CEO and Andreas Hufer, Head of Sales and Business Development, Kinopolis-Group.
“We are honored to present this award at CineEurope with our Official Corporate Sponsor, Coca-Cola, and publicly recognize Kinopolis for their eco-conscious efforts, expressed Andrew Sunshine, President of the Film Expo Group. “It’s imperative that we keep up a constant dialogue regarding sustainability and the symbiotic relationship our industry has with the surrounding earth.”
“We are delighted to acknowledge Kinopolis as the first recipient of this award at CineEurope 2023, says Nick Gault, Coca-Cola Away From Home Customers Director. “In 2022, The Coca-Cola Company announced an industry-leading goal to significantly boost its use of reusable packaging. By 2030, we aim to have at least 25% of all beverages globally across its portfolio of brands sold in refillable/returnable glass or plastic bottles, or in refillable containers through traditional fountain or Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers. This means we are all having to adapt and change our business operations. Kinopolis’ leadership, collaboration and transparency in sharing their learnings in the application of reusable packaging means the whole industry benefits.”
