Ever since J.C. Jacobsen established the Carlsberg Foundation 140 years ago, a commitment to society has been at the heart of our business. This is nowhere more evident than in our sustainability efforts. Our business is dependent on the availability of land, water, crops, healthy ecosystems and thriving communities. Without these, we would not be able to make and sell our products. This means that global sustainability trends and drivers, such as climate change, water scarcity, population growth, urbanisation, income inequality and resource constraints, all have a major actual and potential impact on our business.
We research and analyse our environmental and social impacts as well as our economic impacts, and use our findings to spot trends, reduce risks and maximise opportunities for the benefit of the Group and our stakeholders.
Three elements bring our sustainability strategy to life and provide the framework for managing our activities: articulating our commitment, collaborating with others and activating our priorities.
