Recognizing a Champion of Hope

We’ve always known that being a great beer company involves more than just brewing. In that tradition, the Denver and Golden offices hold an annual giving campaign to support the Mile High United Way and make a positive impact in our community.

This year’s campaign raised a record breaking $175,000 – an increase of 30% over last year!

Champion of Hope

Each year, Mile High United Way honours exceptional companies for their outstanding employee campaigns and demonstrated commitment to the community. Molson Coors received the Champion of Hope award, which recognizes companies who go above and beyond financial contribution to Mile High United Way with in-kind donations, volunteerism and by creating a culture of giving within their organizations.

Cheers to the Denver and Golden offices for helping to improve our positive Beer Print in the communities we live and work.

Zagrebačka Pivovara shines at Croatia’s Night of Museums

Night of Museums is a unique cultural event providing locals and tourists the opportunity to tour multiple museums, which remain open until late at night for free. It started in Croatia in 2005 and Zagrebačka Pivovara, a Molson Coors company, joined as a partner five years later.

On January 31, for the fifth consecutive year, Zagrebačka Pivovara surprised many visitors with a night of entertainment and educational programs at the Museum of Zagrebačka Pivovara. Visitors were able to return to the past as a part of the historical overview that included newspapers from the 1892 which included articles about the establishment of the brewery, Christmas Beer artwork from the past 24 years, and old labels and artifacts from the brewery’s rich history. Visitors also had the opportunity to learn about the proper beer pouring ritual, see an informational film of Zagrebačka Pivovara and natural beer production, enjoy their favorite beer and even buy beer souvenirs!

Zagrebačka Pivovara hosts a growing number of visitors and plays an important role in Zagreb’s diverse cultural offering.

Night of Museums History
Night of Museums (Noć muzeja) is organized by Croatian museums and other cultural institutions. The first Night of Museums was held in Berlin in 1997, and because of the overwhelming interest, it soon spread across multiple institutions and various cities throughout Europe and the world. Over the years, a number of cities, cultural institutions and visitors have steadily increased to a record this year with 350,900 visitors in 100 cities and more than 200 institutions.

Top of the class: Our Beer Print is recognized again

For the second consecutive year, we’ve received the Industry Leader and Gold Class distinction for our excellent sustainability performance in the RobecoSAM’s Sustainability Yearbook 2014.

RobecoSAM_SustAward Industry Leader 2014_rgb_U

The Sustainability Yearbook looks back at companies’ sustainability performance in 2013 and ranks them as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The top performing company from each of the 59 industries is awarded RobecoSAM Industry Leader. Click here to view a full list of Industry Leaders.

This year, RobecoSAM made it more challenging to be a yearbook member requiring companies to be within the top 15% of their industry in regards to sustainability practices. And, they must also achieve a score within 30% of their Industry Leader’s score to make the cut. This effectively makes being a yearbook member a more exclusive acknowledgement of a company’s sustainability practices.

This recognition proudly sits alongside last year’s other Our Beer Print successes: World Beverage Sector Leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index and achieving a position of leadership in the in CDP’s S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).

These recognitions prove that by working to improve our positive Our Beer Print, we can win the right way!
