Carlsberg UK publishes Sustainability report for 2016

Sustainability is a subject close to the hearts of many people within Carlsberg UK. It is also central to the Carlsberg Group’s purpose “to brew for a better today and tomorrow”.

Sustainability is a subject close to the hearts of many people within Carlsberg UK. It is also central to the Carlsberg Group’s purpose “to brew for a better today and tomorrow”.

In 2016, sustainability was embedded in our Group strategy, SAIL’22, as part of our aim to create a winning culture throughout our business.

Today we publish our Carlsberg UK Sustainability report for 2016, and some things really stand out:

Energy & carbon

  • 7% reduction in relative carbon emissions since 2010
  • 2 sites (Northampton brewery and Nashmead) achieving 100% waste diverted from landfill – and a cross-company average of 99.5%

Water

  • 9% reduction in relative water consumption since 2010
  • 9 cycles of water re-use through reverse osmosis

Responsible drinking

  • 25 million people reached globally by Carlsberg to support Global Beer Responsibility Day
  • 2 alcohol-free beers in our drinks portfolio

Health & safety

  • 9 sites achieving their targeted safety scores
  • 45% reduction in manual handling incidents

Responsible business

  • £10,000 contributed to Prostate Cancer UK in support of Jeff’s March

Looking ahead, we are inspired by Group ambitions set out in Sail'22 and look forward to seeing how new targets set to be announced later this year will shape our sustainability plans for 2017 and beyond.
