BELGIUM: Anheuser-Busch InBev to cut logistics carbon emissions
The brewer has revealed a new target for cutting carbon emissions in its logistics operations
Anheuser-Busch InBev has pledged to cut carbon emissions in its logistics operations by 15% by 2017.
The brewer said improvement in its logistics could also lead to up to US$200m in cost savings within the three years. The company said it will slash its emissions by focussing on transport and warehousing operations.
The reduction targets assume no changes in volumes, as the targets are “intensity-based”, the brewer said.
“This new goal builds on our strategy to look beyond our brewery walls as we continue to drive reductions in the impact of our supply chain and pursue partnerships to improve performance globally,” said Carlos Brito, A-B InBev’s CEO.
The brewer said the new target adds to its existing global environmental goals covering water use and agricultural development, energy and greenhouse gas emissions, and materials and recycling.
In first-quarter results, reported last month, A-B InBev revealed a lift in sales, but rising finance costs and currency swings dragged down net profits.
