Securing shared water resources for our business and local communities

We are working towards a resilient world where our business, local communities and ecosystems share uninterrupted access to safe, clean water.

We want a resilient world where our business, local communities and ecosystems share uninterrupted access to safe, clean water. Growing water scarcity, driven by the growing middle class, climate change and population growth means that we need to play our part to ensure a reliable, clean supply of water that is managed and used as efficiently as possible.

We will secure shared water resources for our business and local communities. Brewery by brewery, we are building a detailed understanding of water risks. We create partnerships to tackle these risks with those that share them.

By 2020, our target is to:

  • Secure the water supplies we share with local communities through partnerships to tackle shared water risks
  • Further reduce water use to 3.0 litres of water per litre of beer and 1.8 litres of water per litre of soft drink
  • Have programmes in place to mitigate shared water risks for our key crop origins at risk
