reducing specific emission 08 Energy Increasingly, we are involving greater numbers of employees outside the brewing, packaging and production processes in the question of energy efficiency. Activities in 2007 During the year, we initiated an indicative study to determine our carbon footprint (the total amount of greenhouse gasses (expressed in C02 equivalents) emitted over a product's entire life cycle). This is the beginning of a complex process in which we need to consider the emissions created through a significant number of variables such as growing and harvesting, brewing, transport of raw and packaging materials; distribution of finished product; distances travelled and cost of dispense at point of purchase or consumption. More information about the carbon footprint project can be found elsewhere in this report (see page 9). The installation of an energy efficient brewhouse (wort stripper) in Mons(France) has reduced thermal energy requirements significantly. The sites in St. Petersburg (Russia) and Aba (Nigeria) renovated the heat generation plants that helped improve their efficiency. Our production sites in Lezajsk (Poland), El Obour (Egypt) and Sterlitamak (Russia) saved energy through active monitoring and specific reduction programmes. The constant focus on actions to save energy in Sterlitamak (Russia) and the technical improvement of the cooling plant in St. Petersburg (Russia) have contributed to a greater efficiency of our electricity consumption.
