Beer co's work on their eco-friendliness
Our pledge is to continually seek to operate more efficiently and to maintain our quality standards, while considering our environmental impact in order to be better stewards of the world in which we live.
Our award-winning commitment to a healthy environment begins at the top. We believe that being a responsible steward of the environment is good for our business, our communities and our planet.Our brewing practices make business and philosophical sense. We believe that when we build sustainable manufacturing processes, we also make our business more sustainable over the long term.We have real goals, and we’re moving fast to meet them. We want to make more beer using less water and protect the crystal-clear goodness of that water. We want to reduce the energy we use. We want to foster recycling and reuse of our materials. Finally, we are working to reduce the waste from our operations to zero.
We’ve set more stringent targets for the amount of water we use to produce beer, and at the same time we’re making capital improvements at breweries to reduce the amount of water we use. To encourage and empower our employees to save water, we’ve formed energy- and water-reduction teams at our breweries. Finally, we’re identifying new ways to reuse wastewater in cooling towers and in the irrigation of crops and facility landscaping.
The steps that these beer companies are taking to improve the environment are commendable. Still, more can always be done. If you’re a frequent drinker of any of the beers from Anheuser Busch or MillerCoors, why don’t you contact them and thank them for what they are doing to help the environment and let them know that you would appreciate if they found additional ways to make their businesses eco-friendly.
