Molson Coors aims to achieve zero waste to landfill across its major manufacturing facilities by 2025, as the company reveals its sustainability goals.
Called the Beer Print, this is the company’s sustainability report released since Molson Coors closed on the acquisition of MillerCoors in October 2016. By the end of 2016, the brewer said it had already achieved zero waste to landfill at 13 of its manufacturing facilities.
The company has also targeted improving water efficiency by 22% across its breweries and reducing carbon emissions by 50%. In a bid to limit harmful alcohol use, it will deliver nutritional labelling in all of its products, while ensuring consumers have access to low and no-alcohol beers in every market where Molson Coors sells beer.
Molson Coors global senior director of corporate responsibility Kim Marotta said: “Doing business the right way has been core to who we are for generations. And given this new chapter in our company’s long history, we now have even greater responsibility to make a positive impact on the world.
“Our new sustainability strategy reflects our broadest set of goals to date – a comprehensive, long-term plan that will put us on the leading edge as we look to 2025.”
CEO Mark Hunter continued: “As our company grows and looks toward the future, we are increasingly proud of our commitment to leave a positive Beer Print with every beer we brew.
“Our Beer Print 2025 is a vision for the future and our way of raising the bar on beer with a series of aspirations that will help shape our company, change behaviours and set industry standards.”
Last month MillerCoors announced it used 16.9% less water last year compared to 2015, as a result of innovative farming techniques and increased brewery efficiencies.
