At Carlsberg, we are brewing for a better today and tomorrow.

Together Towards ZERO is our ambitious sustainability programme, which aims to help us mitigate long-term risks, tackle global challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and public health issues, and make the most of opportunities to develop more sustainable products and healthier choices.

It sets out targets in four areas, and is aligned with the targets of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals where we can have the greatest impact. We partner with suppliers, NGOs and others in our industry to make progress Together Towards ZERO.

Here, we cover some of the highlights. For all the detail and data, including an index of how we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals, see our annual Sustainability Report. Or for the highlights, see our Sustainability Summary.

 

 

Our actions towards ZERO

Rethinking packaging with the Green Fibre Bottle

Rethinking packaging with the Green Fibre Bottle

Reducing our beer-in-hand carbon footprint means innovating across our packaging portfolio. And innovations are best achieved in partnership with other experts. The paper bottle company, Paboco, is helping us achieve breakthroughs in our Green Fibre Bottle project, developing the world’s first 100% bio-based beer bottle made from sustainably sourced wood fibres.

Halving water usage at Fredericia brewery

Developing a sustainable tomorrow can only happen together. In 2019 we announced an ambitious project at our Fredericia brewery, the result of public-private partnership with DRIP in Denmark. It will use innovative water recycling technology to reuse 90% of process water, providing learnings for our other wastewater treatments around the world.

Alcohol-free beer on tap

When people go out, they want to enjoy a great beer with friends but sometimes they don’t want to feel the effect of alcohol, especially when they’re driving. At Carlsberg we’re working with partners to ensure that wherever consumers find our beers they can choose alcohol-free brews – even on tap.
