(3BL Media) July 2, 2012 - Generating inclusive growth

SABMiller has published its 2012 Sustainable Development Report online at www.sabmiller.com/sd

One of the four strategic priorities for SABMiller is to constantly raise the profitability of local businesses, sustainably. During the past year, SABMiller has:

  • Generated over US$23,921million of economic value, the majority of which was distributed through the course of business to employees, shareholders and other stakeholders;
  • Reduced the water consumption and fossil fuel emissions per hectolitre of lager produced by 5% and 10% respectively;
  • Increased the average group score against its bespoke performance monitoring tool - the Sustainability Assessment Matrix (SAM) - from 2.9 to 3.2, and improved the score achieved in all ten priority areas;
  • Directly supported around 100,000 farming jobs in Africa;
  • Doubled the reach of the public-private Water Futures partnership, extending to four new markets: Colombia, Honduras, India and the USA;
  • Invested US$34 million in corporate social investment around the world, a significant portion of which is focused on supporting local entrepreneurs, particularly in Colombia and South Africa; and
  • Ensured that more than 50,000 employees are trained in alcohol responsibility and SABMiller policies.

SABMiller’s businesses understand that their profitability depends on healthy communities, growing economies and the responsible use of natural resources. These issues are integrated into the day to day management of the business through 10 sustainable development priorities.

The report explains these priorities and describes the key initiatives and partnerships underway to address them. SABMiller’s summary report also highlights three of the most material sustainable development issues for the business; its economic contribution, tackling resource scarcity and the role of beer in society.  An online reporting tool enables users to explore detailed sustainable development data, by country and priority, and learn more about the performance of its local businesses.

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.
