Carlsberg reports solid progress on sustainability 

The Carlsberg Group has reported that it has made “solid progress” towards the sustainability targets of its Together Towards Zero programme.

In 2019, the Group achieved a 30 per cent reduction in relative carbon emissions at its breweries since 2015 (13 per cent since 2018), with 56 per cent of electricity from renewable sources and a total of five carbon-neutral sites running soley on renewable energy.

Meanwhile, Carlsberg also delivered a 12 per cent reduction in relative water consumption since 2015 and announced a major investment in water-recycling technology at its Danish brewery.

According to Carlsberg, recent packaging innovations – including its plastic-reducing Snap Pack multipack solution – have played a key role in its sustainability strategy.

“I’m proud of what we’ve achieved since launching Together Towards Zero,” said Cees ‘t Hart, chief executive of Carlsberg Group. “Collaboration will become even more important as we approach our 2030 ambitions. Nobody can solve the sustainability challenges the world faces alone.”
