Global brewer Molson Coors has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across operations by 50%, and throughout the company’s value chain by 20%. The aim sits alongside other 2025 goals set by the brewer, with its emissions reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). This means that the plan is in line with the Paris Agreement.
Since launching our goals in 2017, we’ve reduced our absolute carbon emissions from our direct operations by 15% and achieved an absolute carbon emissions reduction of 6.2% in our value chain.
In the company’s latest sustainability report, Molson Coors also offered further information about progress when it comes to other sustainability targets. This includes the aim of achieving zero waste to landfill at all breweries and manufacturing facilities, with the brewer reporting that it has so far successfully achieved or sustained zero waste to landfill at 14 sites. The company has also reported that it is working toward sourcing 100% of barley and hops from sustainable suppliers in key growing regions.
