MAJOR MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS JOIN WITH HEINEKEN USA IN THE HEALTH ALLIANCE ON ALCOHOL TO ADDRESS THE NDERAGE CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL Heineken WWW.HEINEKENINTERNATONAL.COM/WATER -i {fgRBwapBy- USA programmes such as in Madrid (Spain), also reduced consumption of water. Repair work in Awo-Omamma (Nigeria) resulted in water savings. During 2008, we commissioned a new waste water treatment plant at our production unit in Kigali (Rwanda). In addition, four more waste water treatment projects are under construction in Bujumbura (Burundi), Brazzaville (Congo), Kinshasa and Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of Congo). Throughout 2008, we conducted internal discussions and made preparations which enable Heineken to sign the UN CEO Water Mandate early 2009. These discussions resulted in the decision to formally endorse the CEO Water Mandate early 2009. What we delivered Our water consumption improved from 5.15 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer in 2007 to 5.06 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer in 2008, which is above our target of 4.9 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer. Next year, the new acquisitions (mainly Scottish Newcastle) will contribute positively as they had an average specific consumption of 4.07 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer in 2008. In 2008, more than 80 per cent of our breweries complied with the maximum limit of seven hectolitres of water per hectolitre beer brewed as set out in our 'Aware of Water' programme. Four of the 28 non-compliant breweries are recent acquisitions. The Heineken Group (excluding the companies acquired in 2008) showed three breweries that reduced water consumption below our norm of maximum 7 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer. The brewery in Skopje (FYR Macedonia) reduced water use from 7.1 to 6.2 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer, the brewery in Tiengiang (Vietnam) reduced water use from 7.9 to 5.3 hectolitres per hectolitre of beer.
