Our waste data is comprised of solid waste sent to landfill, solid waste incinerated and solid waste recycled. Spent grain and yeast is a co-product of the brewing process and therefore not included in consolidated group waste stream reporting.

In 2008 our UK business set itself an ambitious target to send zero waste to landfill by the end of 2012. In 2008, 1,806 tonnes of the waste were disposed of in landfill. We achieved this target in our breweries, offices and distribution centers, which will all remain zero landfill operations going forward. Through this initiative we have avoided a potential US $500,000 in UK landfill tax charges.

The data has been independently reviewed in accordance with ISAE 3000 and disclosed to investors in our 2013 10K as part of the evaluation of climate change risk. The data tables below report waste generated by region for Molson Coors Brewing Company. Due to our 42% equity share in MillerCoors in the US, we also report 42% of their environmental impact. Whilst we have always reported the data by region, historically MillerCoors was included in our total figures. From this point on we are reporting MillerCoors separately.
