In October 2016, following our combination with SABMiller, we introduced our updated Better World strategy, aligning our environmental, social and alcohol responsibility efforts around three core pillars to make the world a better place. By combining the scale of our operations, resources and passion of colleagues around the world, we’re working to bring this vision to life.
We envision a growing world where everyone has the opportunity to improve their livelihoods. To get there, we will continue to drive agricultural productivity, innovation and resilience, supporting our growers and their communities. We are also committed to helping small retailers grow – providing the current and future generation of entrepreneurs across our markets with the business skills and opportunities they need to thrive.
We want a cleaner world where natural resources are shared and preserved for the future. We are dedicated to enhancing water access and security across our markets through watershed restoration and conservation programs, and by mobilizing a global movement for water access. We will continue to tackle climate change by reducing our carbon emissions, investing in sourcing renewable electricity and increasing the recycled content in our packaging materials.
We are committed to promoting a healthier world where every experience with beer is a positive one for lives well lived. We will extend and expand our Global Smart Drinking Goals to help ensure the harmful use of alcohol is reduced significantly and measurably across all of our markets.
We are on a journey to embed sustainability throughout our business and across our supply chain, enabling growth and opportunity for our company and communities in our markets. It is our mission to address issues, not only relevant for our business, but relevant to communities where we can make a positive impact. By working together with local communities, NGOs, suppliers, governments, customers, consumers and beyond, we’re working to create value for all.
