In 2016, we achieved a 37% reduction in CO2 emissions from production, compared with the 2008 baseline. - Our emissions are also decreasing in absolute terms. Even though our production volumes in 2016 were 52% higher than in 2008, our emissions were 5% less. - 25% of our electrical energy and 5% of our thermal energy comes from renewable sources. - In the Netherlands, four windmills became operational, delivering up to 36% of the entire electricity requirements of Zoeterwoude, Europe's largest brewery. - In Vietnam, by end of 2016, four out of six breweries were using renewable biogas and biomass for 100% of their thermal energy needs. - Our Göss brewery in Austria, the world's first carbon-neutral brewery at this scale, won the EU Sustainable Energy Award. - In Italy, the solar project at Massafra brewery was extended, making it the largest solar PV project installed on a brewery, worldwide.5 Looking ahead In collaboration with UNIDO, we are conducting a feasibility study in Sierra Leone on the potential for renewable energy, with the aim to deliver part of the solar power to the surrounding communities. saved through energy efficiency since 2009 4 Baseline 2008. 5 Source:
