Annual Report 2018 Introduction Report of the Executive Board Report of the Supervisory Board Financial Statements Sustainability Review Other Information 2020 commitment Reduce average water consumption in our breweries to 3.5 hl/hl and in our breweries in water-stressed areas to 3.3 hl/hl4 2018 milestone Reduce average water consumption in our breweries to 3.6 hl/hl Our progress On track Our contribution to the SDGs: 6.4 Substantially increase water-use efficiency We decreased average water consumption in our breweries to 3.46 hl/hl in 2018, meeting our 2020 target. In water-stressed areas, the average water consumption remained at 3.2 hl/hl, surpassing the 2020 target. Water consumption still remains high at some sites. 30 sites used above 5.0 hl/hl in 2018, representing 5% of our volume (in 2017: 36 sites, 8%). We continue to invest in technology to reclaim and recycle water in our production processes, especially at our sites in water-stressed areas. Effluent reclamation plants are now in operation at our breweries in Tangerang (Indonesia), Vialonga (Portugal), Singapore and are being planned in Meoqui and Tecate (Mexico), Sedibeng (South Africa), Kilinto (Ethiopia) and Vung Tau (Vietnam). Looking ahead As part of our new water strategy, Every Drop, we aim to further reduce water use of our breweries. The new strategy will be announced in the course of 2019. For more on our water stewardship approach and progress, see our website and case studies.

The plant was built in a joint development project between our operating company in Singapore, Public Utilities Board (PUB) and National University of Singapore (NUS).
