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 believe in doing business the right way, which results in a strategic commitment to improve Our Beer Print. This means minimizing our impact on the environment in terms of our natural resource use and the waste streams that are generated from the processing and use of our products. We have depended on a clean and secure supply of agricultural raw materials and water since 1786 and will continue to do so for generations to come. Protecting our environment is critical to maintaining the trust of our 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 continuously work towards ambitious long-term targets to reduce the resource intensity of our operations and generation of waste and Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.
  3. We evaluate the risks associated with our resource use and waste generation and take action to mitigate these risks.
  4. 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. In our 2014 Commercial Stakeholder Review water was again identified as a top material issue, see full details in Stakeholder Engagement

    Our approach to reducing Our Beer Print is laid out in our 2020 Sustainability Strategy. Launched in 2013, the Strategy integrates how we manage energy, GHG emissions, water and solid waste and sets out how we will meet our 2020 ambitions.

    The cornerstone of the Strategy is a commitment to invest in waste water treatment and generate clean energy from this waste stream. 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 needed in our breweries. These investments will alleviate the impact of our operations on municipal water treatment resources, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and save GHG emissions. 

    We currently employ anaerobic digestion technology in 5 of our breweries in the UK, Central Europe and India. In 2014, $11.8M of capital investment has been allocated to 2 other projects to be completed this year. Further anaerobic digestion and biogas recovery projects are planned for 2015 and beyond.
