Pioneer grain to glass sustainability

We are committed to preserving the natural resources on which we all depend. Working in partnership to tackle climate change, water stress and biodiversity loss, and helping to create a more sustainable world.

Our continued long-term success depends on the people and planet around us. We recognise that poverty, inequality, climate change, water stress, biodiversity loss and other challenges threaten the environment and the prosperity of communities.

We have a responsibility to ensure that our people, our suppliers, the communities around our operations, our customers and consumers and society at large all thrive as a result of our business.

That means working with our whole value chain – the people, resources and environment that contribute to our success, from grain to glass by:

  • working towards a low-carbon future, harnessing 100% renewable energy to achieve net zero carbon emissions across direct operations and working with suppliers to reduce indirect carbon emissions by 50%; and
  • ensuring that every drink we produce will take 30% less water to make than it does today and will achieve a net positive water impact in our key water stressed basins and communities
  • supporting over 150,000 smallholder farmers with farming techniques to regenerate the land and build biodiversity; and
  • ensuring that we use 100% recycled content in plastic packaging and that 100% of Diageo’s packaging will be widely recyclable.
