Reporting year: 2013
Achievement at a glance
For the first year for the Beer, Wine and Spirits Producers Commitments, we believe that solid progress was made and a strong foundation established that will allow accelerated progress and deliver impactful results over the next four years. In 2013, Commitments signatories defined measurable targets for all action areas; ran 135 underage programs, reaching nearly 1 million youth with alcohol education, and more than 500,000 adults; determined that 96% of advertising in 7 countries is compliant with ad placement rules; found that none of the signatories products contained excessive stimulants; and continue the support for drink driving prevention.
