Water is essential to society, and to making beer. However, today it is not managed optimally in too many areas of the world, and water scarcity is a major concern.

The Carlsberg Group’s vision for a better tomorrow is a world in which zero water is wasted.

In pursuit of this vision, Carlsberg has developed bold targets – including halving water usage at its breweries by 2030. Carlsberg will also form partnerships to safeguard shared water resources in high-risk areas around selected breweries, identified together with WWF.

Carlsberg Group targets

2030

  • 50% reduction in water usage at its breweries
  • Partner to safeguard shared water resources in high-risk areas

2022

  • 25% reduction in water usage at its breweries
  • Explore going below 2.0 hl/hl at all high-risk breweries
  • Partner to safeguard shared water resources in high-risk areas 

The targets are part of the Carlsberg Group’s new sustainability programme, Together Towards ZERO – which states the brewer’s ambitions and targets towards 2022 and 2030.
