Sustainability is the foundation of our business and something that all our brands have in common. We are determined to “Brew a Better World” by focusing our activities and efforts on six different areas that incorporate environmental protection and social responsibility.
Our ambition is to use renewable energy to power our brewery.
In May 2018, we took a step closer to this goal when we installed 1,380 solar panels on the roof of our green warehouse. It will produce some 395,000 kWh of electricity annually and reduce CO₂ emissions by some 118.5 tonnes. Surplus energy will also be redirected to the public electricity grid.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
‘Brewing a Better World’ is our global sustainability strategy that unites all HEINEKEN operating companies as a sustainable force for change. Focusing on the areas where we aim to make the greatest difference inspires our brands to align their purpose with tackling environmental and social issues. We are determined to contribute to six of the UN Sustainable Development Goals through this strategy.
