SABMiller is a signatory to the Beer, Wine and Spirits Producers’ Commitments. Alongside 12 other leading beer, wines and spirits companies we’ve signed up to a five-year global action plan to help reduce the harmful consumption of alcohol.
The commitments fall under the following five action areas:
reducing underage drinking;
strengthening and expanding marketing codes of practice;
providing consumer information and responsible product innovation;
reducing drinking and driving; and
enlisting the support of retailers to reduce harmful drinking.
As at 31 March 2016, 70% of employees worldwide had received alcohol responsibility training within the past three years, and the marketing agencies we use had joined training on responsible marketing in 91% of local businesses.
Our TalkingAlcohol.com website features ingredient and nutrition information for our key brands along with videos and fact sheets on responsible consumption, the effects of alcohol on the body and views from alcohol experts. Now available in eleven languages, including recently launched sites in French and Portuguese, we had more than 598,000 visits to the site this year, with over 1.4 million page views.
