In 2013 our water conservation target was 4.6 hl/hl which works out to 16.62 million m3 of absolute consumption. The target required a 2.9% reduction in 2013 whereas the absolute volume was expected to rise with respect to the year before due to a forecast of increased volumes.

Our 2013 water intensity was better than target and ended the year at 4.55 hl/hl, translating into absolute savings of 0.62 million m3 from the previous year. 

The data has been independently reviewed in accordance with ISAE 3000 and disclosed to investors in our 2013 10K. The data tables below report water use 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 separately. This was due to a change in the scope of reporting from equity share to operational control in order to render the environmental metrics with financial denominators more comparable. See Reporting Scope for full details regarding MillerCoors and Economic Impact for details of Molson Coors’ and MillerCoors’ 2013 financial performance.
