Description/achievement of initiative
We have set ourselves the challenging target of reducing the fossil fuel emissions from our on-site energy use by 50% per hectolitre of lager produced by 2020, against a 2008 baseline.
It is in our interests to reduce our greenhouse gases emissions and to play a part in combating climate change. And to achieve the goals we set in the commitments, We take a holistic approach to managing energy and carbon.
First and foremost, we seek to be energy efficient as we brew beer and operate our facilities.
We also continually evaluate alternative and renewable sources of energy, which produce fewer emissions than fossil fuels and use them whenever we can. We also consider the carbon associated with our value chain, focusing particularly on packaging manufacture, transport and the refrigeration of our products.
In the last 12 months, our energy use has remained constant at 138 MJ per hectolitre of lager. Due in part to a cleaner fuel mix, the carbon emissions per hectolitre of lager produced fell to 12.4 kgCO2e/hl, 10% less than the previous year.
