Reducing our environmental impact

Drinkable water is becoming a scarce commodity in some areas of the world. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that one in five developing countries will face water shortages by 2030. While not at present a business or environmental constraint in our countries of operation, water conservation is of central importance in our long-term sustainability efforts. In recent years we have achieved significant reductions in our water usage with our worldwide average performance for the amount of water used for a unit of finished beer meeting international benchmarks for good practice. We seek to continue to improve our management of water usage.

In addition, we also measure and report on our other significant environmental impacts including energy efficiency, global warming emissions and waste streams and on our progress in extending our environmental management systems to additional sites and operations.
