Energy We use energy for heating and for power, throughout the brewing and packaging process therefore the availability and affordability of fuel is crucial for our business as is the availability of electricity in the bottling and fermentation process. A "Win-Win" Opportunity The use of fossil-based fuels is a significant cause of global warming and source of cost for our business. Therefore there is a significant mutual interest for us and society to reduce our energy consumption - particularly that of oil and gas. What we said we would do and what we delivered We committed to examining ways to extend energy savings, in the period 2009 - 2011, beyond the promise in our Aware of Energy programme. In 2002, we set a target of a 15 per cent energy efficiency improvement by 2010. At the end of 2009, we had already achieved 14.3 per cent. This means we are well on track to meet our commitment. We have done so both for the operations that were in our control in 2002, as well as for those businesses that we have acquired and consolidated during the period. As a result of the change to consolidated reporting (see page 2), we have restated our 2008 Energy results in order to enable a valid performance comparison to be made.
