Our water use
As a brewer, water is critical for us. Without water, there is no beer. Working in partnership with others, we have the opportunity to use our scale and expertise to work towards ensuring a reliable, clean supply of water is available for not just ourselves, but also for local communities and the environment.
Throughout 2016 we continued to reduce the amount of water used in our beverage facilities. Having already met our 2017 water usage environmental goal, we further reduced our global usage to 3.14 hectoliters of water per hectoliter of production. We’re able to make these improvements because we focus on onsite water efficiency and risk management, watershed protection for operations and brewing materials, water access programs and employee engagement.
