HEINEKEN is the world’s most international brewer. We are a truly global citizen; for us, this means we have a responsibility to make things better – now, and for generations to come. Sustainability isn’t something we just started to talk about; we’ve been working towards better environmental and social stewardship since our business began. Today, Brewing a Better Future is the next chapter in our sustainability story. It is our strategy for creating shared, sustainable value: for our company, for society and for the planet.

How we integrate the concerns of our communities into our business strategies helps strengthen and create shared value among us. Sustainability can’t be defined as a single program or token initiative. It’s an explicit and defined aspect of who we are as a company and how we run our business. It’s an obligation to operate better and smarter— and run our business in a way that makes sense for both our company and our world.
