SABMiller to reduce fossil-fuel emissions – M&G

SABMiller will reduce fossil-fuel emissions from its beers by 50% per litre of beer produced by 2020, it said on Friday. The JSE-listed company said in a statement that it aimed to achieve this through “greater energy efficiency and by utilising renewable energy sources such as brewing by-products and agricultural waste”.

SABMiller anticipated this would enable it to contain absolute emissions across its 200 beer brands at their 2008 level by 2020, despite production volume growth.
