Climate change is a pressing issue, so we need to take action.
We will focus on reducing impacts at our breweries – eliminating carbon emissions through the use of climate-friendly technologies, and engaging our value chain to reduce our beer-in-hand carbon footprint.
0% carbon emissions at our breweries
30% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint1
50% reduction in carbon emissions at our breweries
100% electricity from renewable sources at our breweries
Eliminate use of coal at our breweries
15% reduction in beer-in-hand carbon footprint
100% low climate impact cooling
Partner with 30 suppliers to reduce shared carbon footprint
1 Beer-in-hand emissions refer to the full life-cycle carbon footprint of a product, taking into account value chain impacts beyond the Carlsberg Group’s operational control, such as agricultural production, transport logistics and retail refrigeration.
Brewing with tomorrow in mind
The journey towards zero carbon footprint starts at our breweries. That’s why we target 0% carbon emissions at our breweries by 2030, and the use of 100% electricity from renewable sources at our breweries by 2022.
To achieve our brewery targets, we will follow best practice in energy management, eliminate the use of coal and source only renewable electricity. Our approach will be to involve both direct investments in technologies like solar panels (read more about our installation in China) and market-based instruments such as certificates with guarantees of origin.
