Together Towards ZERO

In 2017, Carlsberg Group devised an ambitious new sustainability programme, which expresses our vision for a better tomorrow, at a time of serious challenges. It consists of four ambitions: ZERO carbon footprint, ZERO water waste, ZERO irresponsible drinking and a ZERO accidents culture. Each of these is underpinned by individual and measurable targets, leading up to 2022 and 2030.

We will eliminate carbon emisisons at our breweries by 2030 and be using 100% renewable electricity by 2022. We are also working with partners in our value chain to reduce beer-in-hand emissions by 30% by 2030.

We will cut water usage at our breweries by half by 2030, effectively eliminating water waste during the brewing process. We will also engage with partners to improve water management outside selected breweries in high-risk areas.

We will offer 100% distribution of alcohol-free brews by 2022 to expand consumer choice. We will also provide responsible drinking messaging as well as nutrition and ingredient information on our packaging and online, while forming partnerships to encourage responsible consumption.


We will continue to target a year-on-year reduction in our accident rate in order to achieve our 2030 target of ZERO lost-time accidents.
