The state of the world:
We are living in a decade which will have a very significant impact on determining our future. If there was ever a time to act, it is now. Things will not start moving on their own. As leaders in most of the markets we operate in, we believe we need to lead by example. We've shifted sustainability into the core of our strategy and plan to accelerate our efforts moving forward. Doing both big things and lots of smaller things.
Through our actions, we contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on areas where we can make an impact, utilizing our scale, supply chains or partnerships. What we are facing is bigger than us. We can do our part, but we also understand the need to engage with others to serve a greater good. Building on what beer has been doing for centuries - bringing people together.
We are focused on the current decade and have set some ambitious goals for 2030. Our aim is to become carbon neutral within our breweries and work with partners to cut our carbon footprint across the whole supply chain by 30%. We plan to maintain and improve best-in-class water consumption in our breweries, use only packaging that is fully circular, and source ingredients in a sustainable way.
Our focus is also on the openness and diversity of our teams, to achieve an equal share of women in the leadership by 2030. With the goal to reach a 20% share of non-alcoholic products in our portfolio, we want to provide more choice to our consumers.
Our goals for the planet:
Our beers come from nature, whether it is water, hop, yeast, barley or any other crop we use. To bring moments of joy to our customers, we need to care for the planet as well.
By the year 2030, our ambition is that all of our breweries will be carbon neutral, all the packaging we use recyclable and that all ingredients originate from sustainable sources. We will also continue to be the best in our class in water consumption, while fostering partnerships across our supply chains, as well as in the communities where we operate. Because we care and are fully aware of the impact we can have.
Our goals for the people:
By 2030, we aim for an equal balance of executive women in leadership teams.
The wellbeing of our employees, as well as of the people enjoying our products, is something we pay great attention to. Because without them, we would never be able to thrive.
We believe that differences accelerate innovation and enhance creativity. We are building a culture to embrace it. To provide more choice for consumers, we will further innovate in the non-alcoholic segment, in order to achieve a 20% share of non-alcoholic products in our portfolio by 2030.
