It’s a Win-Win with Our Beer Print

To me Our Beer Print in Supply Chain is all about doing more with less, we’ve been doing this in Supply Chain for as long as I can remember. Producing more beer whilst using less of the earth’s resources is good for the planet and also produces savings for us!

The World Class Supply Chain program sets out the roadmap for how we will continue to optimize our breweries and logistics operations across eight different pillars:

  • Environment, Health & Safety
  • Quality
  • People, Management
  • Team Empowerment
  • Logistics
  • Asset Care
  • ‘Our Beer Print’

MCBC-pillars
The Our Beer Print pillar gives our breweries the tools and management systems to enable them to deliver our very ambitious 2020 Sustainability Strategy targets.

2020 Targets

It gathers together all the current best practice from international standards such as ISO50001 and ideas already implemented across our Global Supply Chain on energy & water efficiency and waste management. I love that our breweries in Canada, Central Europe & India can take how the UK breweries got to zero waste to landfill back in 2012 and use the learnings to achieve that themselves rather than having to invent it!

I have to say I am most excited by our adoption of anaerobic digestion waste water treatment with biogas recovery as a strategic technology for Molson Coors that every brewery will evaluate. When I was Plant Manager in Ploiesti in Romania, I had one of these waste water treatment plants and using the gas given off by the cleaning of our brewery effluent (our waste water) to power our boilers really made me feel good. Reducing waste to the environment whilst getting free power to brew with, what a win-win!

Our Beer Print in Supply Chain put simply, is running an efficient business that does more with less every year. I’m proud of the work done so far in all our breweries worldwide on World Class Supply Chain implementation and the results it will deliver.

Cheers to Our Beer Print!

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.

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.

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!
