Water Stewardship: Helping the business and our communities



With increasing global demands on fresh water supplies, it is becoming more and more important that we play our part in water conservation. By conserving water, we shrink our negative Beer Print and increase our positive Beer Print!

As one of our most important beer ingredients, we care about Every Drop of water we use and Every Ripple of its impact in our communities and supply chain. So we have set an ambitious goal to improve our breweries’ water efficiency by 20% by 2020.

With our 2020 water efficiency goal in mind, our work up to now has made some great progress! From 2008 to 2012, our water efficiency projects have saved approximately 504 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water!

We also have a long history of working with our local stakeholders to try and solve water challenges, including:

Our latest water-related project is in Bihar, India, close to our Cobra Brewery. We are working with Water For People to build a toilet block, hand washing facility and fresh water pump. This will dramatically improve the well-being of the community and reduce life threatening diseases in this vibrant but underprivileged part of India.

The accomplishments we listed above are great, but there is still a lot to do!

  1. I think the company should tell the public how it really gets its water. I know my family didn’t get paid for ours! How many other families are out there that agree? I suggest a poll.

  2. Hi Carol, hoping to get more clarification around your inquiry. I’ll send you an email so we can discuss further. Thanks!
