FARMING FOOTPRINT

Our ambition is to achieve a ZERO Farming Footprint


With the evolution of our ESG programme from Together Towards ZERO (TTZ) to Together Towards ZERO and Beyond (TTZAB), we have introduced agriculture as a new ESG focus area. Within this, we have a ZERO Farming Footprint ambition which includes new targets and activities in our upstream value chain, and new milestones towards 2030 and 2040.

We will go Beyond by sourcing our raw materials from sustainable sources and from regenerative agricultural practices, targeting 30% of all raw materials by 2030, and 100% by 2040. 

The activities we will undertake to achieve our ZERO Farming Footprint ambition will also create carbon impact benefits that will accelerate progress towards a ZERO Carbon Footprint across our entire value chain by 2040.

ZERO FARMING FOOTPRINT IN ACTION

Promoting sustainable agriculture through crop innovation

Scientists at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory in Copenhagen have been exploring the boundaries of crop science and perfecting the art of brewing since 1876. Today, they are turning their attention to sustainable agriculture to reduce climate risks in our supply chain.

Regenerative farming in Finland

KOFF Christmas beer, produced at our carbon-neutral Sinebrychoff brewery, is the most popular Christmas beer in Finland. It contains a very special barley from regenerative practices.
