25 June, 2009

US/Canada: Molson Coors Brewing Company has announced the release of its 2008 online corporate responsibility report. - a summary of the company’s 2008 and 2009 to-date performance and future priorities.

In 2008 and the first half of 2009, Molson Coors signed the UN CEO Water Mandate - which includes a 12 percent reduction in CO2 emissions and a four percent reduction in water use. 

Peter Swinburn, president and CEO of Molson Coors Brewing Company said: “Molson Coors’ performance against these targets has been driven by embedding responsibility into the business, making it a part of everything we do.

“We manage it and measure it as a business initiative – not an ancillary project that can be set aside when other priorities arise.” 

The company has also established a Steering Group, made up of representatives from each business unit who are responsible for setting and meeting targets in ethics and governance, product responsibility, environmental stewardship, people and community, and supply chain.

Molson Coors’ priorities and targets for 2009 include a four percent reduction in energy and water use. As part of the company’s commitment to transparency and continuous improvement, Molson Coors will report on performance against these targets on an annual basis, making key data available on its website.
