The Report of Sustainable Development of SABMiller (Translation)

9 July 2010

SABMiller, the owner of Kompania Piwowarska and one of the biggest producers of beer in the world, has just published the Report of Sustainable Development for the financial year ended on March 31, 2010, and launched a communication campaign on sustainable development called "10 Priorities. One Future."

"Sustainable development forms the foundations of our company's success. This clear and deep-rooted approach has brought tangible benefits to both the company and the communities in which we operate. Our progress and results have been monitored by the board-affiliated Corporate Accountability and Risk Assurance Committee (CARAC)," said Graham Mackay, Managing Director of SABMiller.

The newly published Raport Zrównoważonego Rozwoju (The Report of Sustainable Development) encompasses the financial year concluded on March 31, 2010 and is closely linked to the Raport Roczny (Annual Report) of SABMiller. The report contains information regarding 10 priorytetów zrównoważonego rozwoju (10 priorities of sustainable development) of all companies comprising the SABMiller Group (including Kompania Piwowarska) as well as the activities undertaken by them within sustainable development on separate markets (including Poland). SABMiller, wishing to announce its program to the world, is launching a communication campaign called "10 Priorities. One Goal."

"Out of 24 goals set last year, we have successfully realized 22, and the remaining two are just being done. We are particularly pleased with the fact that we have registered progress in our long-range obligations of limiting water use and cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions. We have once more published the results of our Matryca Zrównoważonej Oceny (Sustainability Assessment Matrix) which provides a point of reference for the results of sustainable development activities of SABMiller and MillerCoors. In spite of raising the criteria, we are happy to announce that our overall results have improved this year in eight out of ten priorities," explains Graham Mackay and adds, "We will continue to strive to achieve measurable benefits resulting from our decisive approach towards sustainable development, which is so beneficial to our company and communities in which we operate, thus continually increasing the profitability of local companies in a sustainable manner."
