The best beer for the world. This is the mission of Danish company Carlsberg, one of the world’s oldest breweries. The company has reduced carbon emissions by 20% since 2015 and has announced plans to slash its carbon footprint to zero by 2030. In 2018, nearly half of its electricity came from renewable sources and the company plans to run all its breweries on only renewable electricity and to have totally phased out coal by 2022.
Despite these advances, there is still a long way to go. “We have the plan, but we need to invest more in energy efficiency and energy sourcing at our breweries and scale up efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of our entire supply chain,” says Simon Boas Hoffmeyer, Carlsberg’s director of sustainability.
