SABMiller Strives To Make More Beer With Less Water [Headlines]
SABMiller's 2011 Sustainable Development Summary Report will focus on using less water in the brewing process.
Last week mega-brewer SABMiller released their 2011 Sustainable Development Summary Report. The company, which earned $5.04B up 15% from last year on revenues of $28.3B, up 7%, sold 218 million hectolitres (5.76 billion gallons) of beer, up 2% from the previous year.
The report’s language shows a good understanding of sustainable development and a good awareness of the key issues that the company’s operations touch on, particularly with respect to water. This is a good start, though far more needs to be done and SABMiller can do more. RP Siegel/TriplePundit
