Driving towards safer roads
The World Health Organization estimates that, without intervention, road traffic crashes could become the fifth leading cause of death globally by 2030, and the United Nations has set a target to halve global deaths and injuries from road traffic collisions by 2020. In many countries where we operate, traffic collisions are a major cause of fatalities, making them a significant issue for our business as well as for society. So we asked ourselves what we could do to help address this critical public health challenge.
Working to reduce harmful use of alcohol around the world
We have long been committed to promoting the safe enjoyment of alcohol around the world. As part of this effort, we recently launched several multi-year pilot programs that will explore collaborative and innovative approaches to reduce the harmful use of alcohol by at least 10% in six cities around the world by the end of 2020.
