Every time you pick up a beer and put it down, you leave a beer print on the coaster or table.
And wherever we brew and sell our beer, we leave a beer print
on our communities, our environment and on our business.
We want to grow our positive Beer Print.
That's why we're committed to reducing our water use, and preserving and protecting the quality of the watershed wherever we brew.
It's why we ensure that every supplier we work with, and even the suppliers they work with, meet our Responsible Sourcing Principles in the brewing, packaging and transportation of our products.
It's why each year we keep millions of pounds of glass, aluminum and cardboard out of landfills because 98% of our bottles and 83% of our cans are returned by consumers. It's why we encourage employees at all levels to share ideas for improving our processes and reducing our environmental impact.
It's why, in 2011, we debuted on the North American Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the stock index that tracks the performance of sustainability-driven companies.
We want our consumers to make responsible choices when enjoying our products, and we pledge to continue to hold ourselves to the same high standards in making those products.
