Carlsberg Group Sets 2040 Goals
Carlsberg Group set a goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions across the entire value chain by 2040.
The company has achieved a 40% reduction in carbon emissions and 21% reduction in water use per hectolitre of beer since 2015.
Details were provided in its new Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) program, Together Towards ZERO and Beyond (TTZAB) which contains updated targets and new focus areas.
“TTZAB is an integral part of delivering on our purpose of brewing for a better today and tomorrow,” said Cees ‘t Hart, CEO of Carlsberg Group in a statement. “Whilst we remain committed to the focus areas that we established in 2017, we have expanded the programme to include a wider array of ESG topics and to address the societal challenges impacting people and communities where we operate. With our new program, we are building on our existing progress and reaffirming our commitment to the collective action needed to stop the excessive increases in emissions the world is facing. We want to enable consumers to enjoy a great beer while leaving the smallest carbon footprint possible.”
