In 2016, we laid the foundation for a new, more integrated approach to sustainability, ensuring that we concentrate our efforts on the areas that really make a difference. This approach underpins our licence to brew and operate and is essential to the successful implementation of the Group’s new strategy, SAIL’22.
Thanks to partnerships with experts like WWF, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and the Carbon Trust, today we have a more detailed understanding of our impacts. The groundwork done with these organisations in 2016 will provide a solid basis for Carlsberg’s new long-term sustainability targets, which will be announced in 2017.
Together Towards ZERO expresses our vision for a better tomorrow at a time of serious challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and threats to public health. The programme states our ambitions and targets towards 2022 and 2030.
Our determination to contribute to a better society harmonises with the global drive for prosperity. It sets out to deliver emission reductions in line with the lower impact set out in the Paris Climate Accord, and aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We used the SDGs to shape our Together Towards ZERO programme, understand the contribution our business activities make and build resilience along the supply chain.
