World Environment Day - the AB InBev story

On 02/06/14 by John Wells (UK ES Manager, AB InBev)

World Environment Day – 5th June 2014

Our dream is to be the Best Beer Company in a Better World which means having the best products and the best people. But it also means making a positive contribution to the communities we work in. As the world’s leading global brewer, we are committed to protecting and efficiently managing the natural resources that our business and communities depend on.

On 5th June 2014 we are taking part in the UN Environmental Programme’s World Environment Day (WED) for the 6th year. This annual event raises awareness of our most pressing environmental challenges, prompting positive environmental action globally.

We are taking part in a number of ways across the UK.

On 3rd June twenty intrepid volunteers from our Magor Brewery in Wales are celebrating World Environment Day early by swapping their usual day’s work of brewing beer to rolling up their sleeves to tackle environmental improvement projects across the Monmouthshire foreshore with the help of environmental charity, Keep Wales Tidy.

Through our partnership with Help the Hospices each of our UK sites has been matched with a local hospice and on Wednesday 4th June a top team including our UK president, Inge Plochaet, is heading to Trinity Hospice in London, matched with our Stag Brewery in Richmond. The team will help with the maintenance of their award winning garden which has a vitally important therapeutic effect on patients, giving them peace and serenity.

And finally on World Environment Day itself at our Samlesbury Brewery in Preston we have invited members of Lancashire’s leading environmental organisations to visit, have a tour and a taste, and hear about what we are doing to reduce our impact on the environment and operating in a responsible and resource-efficient way.
