Our ‘Society 2030: Spirit of Progress’ priorities reflect the most material issues affecting our company, our people, our brands, our suppliers and our communities. Our strategic priorities are to promote positive drinking, champion inclusion and diversity and pioneer grain-to-glass sustainability. Doing business the right way underpins everything we do.
We have set 25 ambitious targets aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The targets build on our long and ambitious track record on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Promote positive drinking
Changing the way the world drinks, for the better.
We want to change the way the world drinks for the better, celebrating moderation and continuing to address the harmful use of alcohol by changing attitudes and expanding our initiatives tackling underage drinking, drink driving and binge drinking.
Champion inclusion and diversity
We believe creating the most inclusive and diverse culture, makes for a better business and a better world.
We will champion inclusion and diversity across our business and together with our partners and communities we aim to help shape a more tolerant and equal society.
Preserve water for life
Water is the basis for life and our most precious resource.
Water stewardship has been a longstanding priority for us and we are focused on preserving this critical resource, particularly in water-stressed areas.
Accelerate to a low carbon world
Our planet needs significant, science-based action to create a sustainable, low-carbon future.
We will decarbonise our own operations by 2030 and will work with our suppliers to halve theirs.
Become sustainable by design
We share the responsibility to restore the natural world on which we all depend.
We are committed to eliminating waste from our value chain, working with farmers to regenerate landscapes and we are continuously looking for ways to ensure that our packaging is both sustainable and effective.
Doing business the right way from grain to glass
We believe doing business the right way contributes to a fair and just society, and this pillar underpins everything that we do.
We create an environment where all our people feel they are treated fairly and with respect. We act with integrity to ensure we are doing business in the right way, meeting external expectations and our own standards.
We will ensure no one compromises on their values, every day, everywhere.
"We have a track record of setting ambitious targets and our Society 2030: Spirit of Progress plan is no different.
