Environmental Stewardship

There are two ways to create your custom Molson Coors corporate responsibility report. You can browse the Responsibility section of our website and select Add to My Report for topics that interest you; or, you can go to our custom report builder (link to report builder page) and check the box next to each topic to prepare a report built just for you.

At Molson Coors we have an ambition to be first choice for consumers and customers, we believe we will achieve this by doing business the right way; one way we do this is though our strategic commitment to improve Our Beer Print. Improving Our Beer Print by protecting our environment is critical to maintaining the trust of our customers and consumers and therefore our long-term sustainability as a business.

So how do we improve Our Beer Print?

  1. We first ask our consumers and community stakeholders what is important to them and focus our efforts accordingly. 
  2. We evaluate the risks associated with our resource use and waste generation and take action to mitigate these risks.
  3. We set ambitious long term targets on our most material issues.
  4. We continuously work towards achieving our targets and have rigorous internal governance to ensure we stay on track.
  5. We engage our suppliers in managing risk and improving their resource intensity with the objective of minimizing the impact of our entire supply chain on the environment.

  • Through our materiality assessment process we identify the most important environmental issues to our business. These issues cover both availability of resources that we rely on to make our products, and the impact we have on the environment though generating waste streams and emissions. In our most recent Stakeholder Review, conducted in 2014, water was again identified as a top material issue; see full details in Stakeholder Engagement. Our top three material environmental issues:

    • Water Risk
    • Energy and Carbon
    • Packaging and Waste

    Our 2020 Sustainability Strategy was developed in response to the environmental issues we have found to be most material to our business. The Strategy lays out ambitious targets for improvement and integrates how we manage energy, carbon emissions, water, waste water and solid waste.

    The cornerstone of the strategy is a commitment to invest in waste water treatment that will allow us to generate clean energy from the waste water our breweries produce. The use of anaerobic digestion waste water treatment technology allows us to treat our waste water to a high quality and generate biogas that can be used to produce heat or electricity. The energy can then be used to power our breweries. This approach will mean we protect the watersheds we operate in, alleviate the impact of our operations on municipal water treatment resources, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and reduce our carbon emissions.
