Our Goal: By 2025, 100% of our purchased electricity will be from renewable sources and we will have a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions across our value chain. with a science-based target for carbon reduction across our value chain. Achieving this target will be the same as taking more than a million and a half cars off the road every year. Through renewable electricity use, brewing efficiency, green logistics programs, and new innovation, we are already reducing our impact.
