Molson Coors Steps Up Climate Fight, Even As Heat Drives Thirst
Molson Coors is stepping up efforts to fight global warming, even though the recent hot weather in Europe during the World Cup has lifted beer sales for one of the world's biggest brewers, chief executive Mark Hunter said on Wednesday.
The firm cut carbon emissions from its direct operations, Hunter told Reuters, by 15% in 2017 – the first year of a programme aimed at halving emissions by 2025 – as part of a goal of limiting droughts, floods and more powerful storms.
Raising The Bar
Molson Coors is also working to cut the use of water and energy, and aims for zero waste to landfills by 2025, Hunter said of the firm's 'Raising the Bar on Beer' project, to protect the environment with sustainable growth.
