Drop the C Our business priorities (continued) Brew a Better World - Drop the C In 2018, we reached our 2020 carbon emissions target for production ahead of time, reducing relative emissions1 by 47%. However, climate change remains one of the most critical issues facing society and greenhouse gas emissions are still on the rise. We feel strongly that we must all take responsibility for our share in the effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions and commitments set by the COP 21 Paris Agreement. Through our Drop the C programme, we aim to reduce emissions across our entire value chain. In 2018, we set ambitious targets for production (see inset). We are now turning our attention to logistics, packaging and cooling. These are challenging areas because a lot of our emissions come indirectly through our suppliers' and sub-contractors' activities. By working together, with a clear shared goal in mind, we can go further than by working alone. It is through cooperation and partnerships that we will continue to reduce our carbon emissions, from Barley to Bar. Report of the Executive Board Drop the C - 70% Renewable Energy in production by 2030 In February 2018, we committed to reducing our CO2 emissions in production by 80% vs 2008. Through our global Renewable Energy programme, we will increase the share of electric and thermal renewable energy in production to 70% by 2030. Teams around the world have been working to develop projects that will deliver our ambition. Many projects have been identified - from using biogas from wastewater treatment plants in Nigeria to generating energy from biomass in Indonesia. The first projects started in 2018.

It shows our carbon emissions across the whole value chain. The new figures show an increase in our carbon footprint from 64.1kg CO2-e per hl in 2014 to 68.1kg CO2-e per hl2. This is due to changes in calculation methodologies3 and our use of direct data to calculate Scope 3 emissions. Most importantly, it shows a decrease in emissions in the areas where we have reduction policies in place: production (-15%), logistics (-22%) and cooling (-13%). This proves that, when we consistently implement targeted programmes, we achieve meaningful results. tonnes C0 Based on 2017 data. Extrapolated to 100% of companies. 12.9t CO2 for 84% of companies in scope.
