This report presents Anheuser-Busch InBev's annual update on key performance data and information for calendar year 2013, and provides data on specific targets in our Better World plan approved by our board of directors.
The report structure parallels our Better World focus areas — Responsible Drinking, Environment, Community — three pillars of global citizenship defined in our materiality assessment and supported by our People.
We continued to make great strides in our Better World work — bringing people together within our company and working with partners outside our company to get results — from reducing water use and greenhouse gas emissions, to executing responsible drinking campaigns, to creating safe work environments, to encouraging employee volunteerism.
Across all the pillars of our Better World plan, we accomplished a number of goals in 2013. It's all a tribute to the positive impact passionate people can have when they're determined to make a difference. And while we made good strides, there is still more we can — and must — do.
This year, AB InBev has divided our global citizenship reporting between the self-contained PDF document and our corporate website. The PDF document primarily summarizes activities, initiatives and achievements that occurred in 2013, while the website offers information on our Better World strategy, ongoing activities and in-depth exploration of key topics. Taken together, the PDF and website content constitute our citizenship reporting for 2013.
This report focuses on our key Better World areas:
