LEAD oVo^c0^ Global Compact Ensure environmental sustainability Through our Green Brewer and Green Commerce initiatives we are contributing to the seventh goal: ensure environmental sustainability. This goal focuses on environmental protection, the provision of basic sanitation and access to water. Our breweries continue to set ambitious energy and water reduction targets and the concept of the carbon neutral brewery continues to be developed. Our policy is to discharge wastewater after it has been treated. We have a programme in place to equip the breweries in Africa with a wastewater purification installation when none is yet present. The brewery waste is minimised by reuse of brewery by-products. We are also improving our water stewardship following the signing of the CEO UN Water Mandate in 2009. On page 20 you can read about two water footprint studies we conducted in Slovakia and Egypt. PARTICIPANT Develop a global partnership for development The last Millennium Development Goal refers to global partnerships. These encourage public and private sector parties to share knowledge and technology in order to help developing countries progress. Locally, our operating companies partner with NGOs, charities, industry initiatives and government projects. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, for example, we partner with GTZ, which specialises in technical cooperation for sustainable development. HAF partners with several organisations in sub-Saharan Africa. On a global level, Heineken is on the private sector constituency of the Coordinating Board for The Global Fund against AIDS, TB and Malaria. We are also a member of the Stop TB Partnership, a World Health Organisation initiative. Our Global Health Affairs department also has a partnership with Pharm Access, a Dutch not-for-profit organisation supporting quality basic healthcare including HIV/ AIDS treatment and care in Africa. Through our Industry Partnership with the World Economic Forum we have an interest in the New Vision for Agriculture, the Future Water Needs project and the Working towards Wellness group.
