Anheuser-Busch InBev Aims to Cut Carbon Emissions by 15 Percent
Anheuser-Busch InBev has committed to a new global environmental goal to reduce the company's carbon emissions in logistics operations by 15 perecnt by the end of 2017.
In support of the new goal, the company will implement a variety of measures and expand proven best practices across its global operations.
AB InBev estimates that collective logistics improvements could result in up to $200 million in savings by the end of 2017.
This new target adds to AB InBev's existing global environmental goals covering water use and agricultural development, energy and greenhouse gas emissions, and materials and recycling.
The announcement coincides with AB InBev's 6th global celebration of the United Nations Environment Programme's World Environment Day (WED). In 2013, more than 67,000 employees led and participated in 1,043 projects around the world. This year's celebration is expected to be larger, with breweries taking part in an annual internal competition to promote best-practice sharing. Local markets will also host activities, including watershed cleanups, recycling initiatives and educational events with local partners.
