Energy intensity performance for 2013 was 117.1 MJ/hl versus a target of 117.7 MJ/hl. In relative terms, this was a 2.6% reduction on previous year actuals versus a 2.3% target. The reduction in energy intensity 2013 represents a 3.0% savings with respect to 2011 and keeps the Company relatively aligned with its 2020 objectives.

In 2013, our GHG intensity target was 9.1 kgCO2e/hl, a 2.1% decrease on the year. Despite a 4,600 tCO2e net reduction of direct GHG emissions with respect to target, a drop in volumes resulted in a final result of 9.25 kgCO2e/hl. Measures to address this 0.15 kgCO2e/hl shortfall have been built into the 2014 and 2015 operating plans.

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 energy use and GHG emissions by region for Molson Coors Brewing Company. Data corresponding to our 42% equity share in MillerCoors in the US is no longer consolidated in MCBC data and is reported separately as Scope 3 activity related to 'Significant Investments'. This is due to a change in the criteria for determining scope from the 'Equity Share' method to the 'Operational Control' method which was deemed more suitable for providing information to stakeholders that is more comparable with our peers. Historical data has been re-baselined to reflect this change and all information going forward will include 42% of MillerCoors activity as Scope 3 related. See Reporting Scope for full details regarding MillerCoors and Economic Impact for details of Molson Coors’ and MillerCoors’ financial performance.
