A cleaner world
Climate change has far-reaching consequences for our business and for the communities where we live and work, from water scarcity and energy constraints, to reduced food security and increased health risks.
And water scarcity is one of the most significant impacts of climate change affecting more than 40% of the global population1. This holds back economic and social development of hundreds of millions of people around the world.
Our water stewardship efforts include not only improving water use efficiency inside our brewery walls, but also investing in watershed protection in high-stress areas, improving water management in our agricultural supply chain and helping provide access to water to communities in need.
The Paris climate talks in December 2015 marked a turning point, as world leaders agreed the first truly global commitment to act on climate change. In working towards these new goals, we need to scale up investments in renewable energy and move to a more efficient, circular economy focused on eliminating waste and emissions and creating value from what remains. This will not only tackle climate change but also boost job creation in local communities.
Looking at our own value chain, growing, brewing, packaging, cooling and transporting our beer all generate greenhouse gas emissions. And we are making significant strides in increasing energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions throughout our operations and across our entire value chain.
