Ever since J.C. Jacobsen established the Carlsberg Foundation, a commitment to society has been at the heart of our business. This is nowhere more evident than in our sustainability efforts.
Our business is dependent on the availability of land, water, crops, healthy ecosystems and thriving communities. Without these, we would not be able to make and sell our products. This means that global sustainability trends and drivers, such as climate change, water scarcity, population growth, urbanisation, income inequality and resource constraints, all have a major actual and potential impact on our business.
Contributing to a better society wherever our beers are brewed and sold is also central to our purpose, we also believe it's the right thing to do, which is why in 2017, despite many years of sustainable improvements, we devised our ambitious new sustainability programme...
Together Towards ZERO
Our sustainability programme expresses our vision for a better tomorrow, at a time of serious challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and public health concerns. It consists of four ambitions, underpinned by individual and measurable targets, leading up to 2022 and 2030:
ZERO carbon footprint
ZERO water waste
ZERO irresponsible drinking
ZERO accidents culture
