The first step towards achieving ZERO carbon emissions at our breweries is world-class efficiency. This means innovating within our existing processes as well as implementing large-scale investment projects. To reduce beer-in-hand emissions, we are forming innovative partnerships, improving performance and taking a leadership role in the industry.
Our detailed road maps to reach these targets are continuously evolving as new solutions and technologies emerge. A key task of the recently formed Carlsberg Young Scientists Community will be to help us develop implementable solutions based on the latest innovations.
The targets set out in Together Towards ZERO are the result of our collaboration with the Carbon Trust.
Their expert analysis provided a carbon footprint of our operations and those of our value chain. It showed that our breweries account for 14% of our carbon footprint, while packaging materials make up 40%, the largest share. Agriculture accounts for 17% and distribution for 14%.
