Heineken Ireland has launched its 2012 Sustainability Report, marking three years since the launch of the brewer's ‘Brewing a Better Future’ programme.
The report found that Heineken reduced its 2012 energy consumption by 10% on 2011 levels, and reduced its water consumption levels by 5%.
Other initiatives highlighted in the report include Heineken's commitment to the roll out of 'green refrigeration' across the business, which has yielded energy savings of 35% for Heineken's consumer base. It also said that 100% of the malt requirements it uses in its Irish operation are sourced locally.
Commenting on the report, Ireland’s Corporate Relations Manager, Declan Farmer said, “We are on an exciting journey. Brewing a Better Future has united all our employees in the quest to build a sustainable company, and thereby securing the continuity of our business for well into the future.”
Heineken also used the opportunity to outline its sustainability goals for 2015 to 2020, which include protecting water resources, reducing CO2 emissions, sourcing sustainably and advocating responsible consumption.
