Molson Coors presented the second annual Canadian Water Summit on June 14th in Toronto. The summit, created by Innovolve Group, unites leaders, experts and stakeholders at a forum with a task to help prepare Canadians to overcome water-related challenges by facilitating solutions-oriented partnerships between business, government and civil society.
The Summit was a one day event that featured a presentation on water risk disclosure from keynote Chris Hedemenn of Carbon Disclosure Project as well as many other themes such as smarter water for smarter cities and Canadian Water leadership.
Andrew Molson, Chairman of the Board for Molson Coors Brewing Company (and 7th generation Molson family) joined us for the morning, speaking about Molson Coors’ Water Stewardship plans and our history with beer’s #1 ingredient. It was fresh water that brought John Molson to the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal 225 years ago. Preserving fresh water and ensuring it as a sustainable resource is not only integral to our history, it is critical to our future.
Cheers to the Innovolve group, the presenters, panelists, volunteers and media. This summit allowed the opportunity for a range of stakeholders to join together and embrace the future of water in Canada.
“Without great water, we can’t make great beer” (Pete Coors)…one of my favourite quotes. Cheers, Tonia
