July 9, 2014 /3BL Media/ - SABMiller has announced it is scaling up its globally-recognised sustainable development programmes with ambitious new targets. These targets build on strong achievements set out in its 2014 Sustainable Development (SD) Summary Report, available online at www.sabmiller.com/prosper.

By 2020, SABMiller will:

  • Directly support over half a million small businesses, to help them grow, improve their livelihoods and drive local development
  • Achieve a world-class water efficiency target of 3.0 litres per litre of beer and secure the water supplies it shares with local communities through watershed partnerships at every site that faces water risks
  • Reduce carbon footprint of  the entire value chain from grain to glass by 25% per litre of beer, and 50% across all breweries
  • Measurably improve food security and resource productivity by developing targets by crop and growing region
  • Encourage moderate and responsible alcohol consumption by scaling up global and local programmes to reach all SABMiller beer consumers

The SD report introduces SABMiller’s new sustainable development ambition, Prosper, which is the latest evolution of the company’s approach to SD and is central to SABMiller’s business strategy. At its heart is supporting the role small businesses play around the world in generating economic growth and reducing poverty. SABMiller is using its value chains from farmers to retailers to drive inclusive growth, sustainable resource use and alcohol responsibility through its five shared imperatives:

  • accelerate growth and social development in our value chains;
  • endeavour to make beer the natural choice for the moderate and responsible drinker;
  • secure shared water resources for our business and local communities;
  • create value through reducing waste and carbon emissions; and
  • support responsible, sustainable use of land for brewing crops.

SABMiller plc is one of the world’s leading brewers with more than 200 beer brands and some 70,000 employees in over 75 countries. SABMiller also has growing businesses in soft drinks and is one of the world’s largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products.
