The Carlsberg Group has committed to eliminating carbon emissions and halving water usage at its breweries by 2030 as part of its new sustainability programme, Together Towards Zero.

The company will also aim to being using renewable electricity at its breweries by 2022 as part the campaign.

Together Towards Zero has been developed in partnership with leading global experts using a science-based approach. It sets out four ambitions, which are: zero carbon footprint, zero water waste, zero irresponsible drinking, and zero accident culture.

Cees 't Hart, CEO of the Carlsberg Group, said: “I'm certain that in achieving our targets we'll create efficiency improvements, risk reduction and a more resilient business that exists in harmony with local communities and the environment.

“Our clear targets and ambitions reflect the mentality of our founders to always strive for perfection and contribute to society through science. The world needs leadership, which is why we've made it a top priority to improve the world of tomorrow in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”

The campaign is a response from Carlsberg to global challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and public health issues.
