Boundaries and scope
Information on this website covers the financial year ended 31 March 2012 with the exception of some case studies which relate to previous years. Operations are included in this report on the basis of management control by SABMiller. Our US joint venture, MillerCoors, is also included. Our economic interest in MillerCoors is reflected when reporting quantitative key environmental performance indicators.
A list of the operations covered in this report is available on page 21 of the SABMiller Sustainable Development Summary Report 2012. Angola, Russia and Ukraine are no longer included following changes to strategic alliances this year which means that SABMiller companies no longer have management control. We aim to include new acquisitions or market entries within two years. This year SABMiller acquired Carlton and United Breweries (CUB), the Australian beverage business of Foster's Group Limited, which will be included in the 2013 report.
Where we hold a minority share in an alliance or partnership, we engage with our partners on sustainable development issues. This year Delta Corporation Ltd in Zimbabwe is included in this report for the first time. Information on our minority venture in China can be found on our business partnerships page.
