Period of implementation of the project: 

2017—2030

Challenge: 

The Programme identifies four Sustainability Ambitions: ZERO carbon footprint, ZERO water waste, ZERO irresponsible drinking and a ZERO accidents culture underpinned with strong and measurable targets for 2022 and 2030

Solution: 

Targets of 2022:

  • 50% reduction in carbon emissions at our breweries
  • 100% electricity from renewable sources at our breweries
  • ZERO coal use at our breweries
  • 15% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint
  • 25% reduction in water usage at our breweries
  • 2.5 hl/hl water usage
  • 2.0 hl/hl water usage at all breweries
  • partnering to safeguard shared water resources 
  • 100% responsible drinking messaging through packaging and brand activations
  • expand offering of alcohol-free brews (AFBs) to 100%
  • reduction in accidents rate year on year

Targets of 2030:

  • ZERO carbon emissions at our breweries
  • 30% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint
  • 50% reduction in water efficiency for brewing
  • 1.7 hl/hl water usage
  • strengthen partnerships to safeguard shared water resources
  • annual improvement with regard to responsible consumption in our markets
  • ZERO lost-time accidents

Results: 

  • ZERO carbon footprint
    • Utilising biogas. In 2019, 11% of natural gas was replaced by biogas, extracted at treatment plants from our own wastewater before it is discharged into the public sewer.
    • Returnable glass bottles. In 2019,the company reused about 136 million glass bottles, which accounts for 44% of the total beer volume sold in secondary glass packaging.
  • ZERO water waste
      • The Carlsberg Group breweries in Ukraine feature one of the highest rates in terms of the water-use efficiency. It owes to multiple projects, including water recycling for technical purposes.
  • ZERO irresponsible drinking

Expanding the choice of alcohol-free brews (AFBs). Since the beginning of the programme, the company’s AFBs portfolio has grown by 4%.

Annually, we joins the World Day of Responsible Beer Consumption. In 2019, the company’s employees visited sellers at 20,000 POS to help prevent underage sales.

  • ZERO accidents culture

The company continues training efforts, ensures the protective equipment for the personnel, and engages with suppliers to promote and support the Health & Safety ambition.
