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!

Every Drop Every Ripple: Molson Coors receives Water Management award

At Molson Coors we are always proud when other people recognize and reward our activities and we couldn’t be more proud than the recent Water Management award received at the inaugural 2degrees Sustainability Champions Awards.

2013 Water Management Award Winner

You may wonder why this award is different. Well for starters, water means a lot to us. A whole lot. In fact, without great water we couldn’t make great beer. And one of the unique properties about water is that water is a very local issue. Good quality water has driven where our breweries are located around the globe; whether it’s St. John’s in Canada, Golden in the USA or Burton on Trent in the UK, we have brewed in these locations simply because the water is famous with the beers produced.

This makes water a local and community issue. If we use too much, or mistreat it, we have to recognize the impact on our neighbours and communities. We have worked with our communities around the globe to ensure that we are respecting and preserving the watershed in which we operate, for both our future use, but also for those of future generations of communities.

Aside from water being one of our most important ingredients in our beers, it also is vital in producing a second important ingredient; our barley. And we treat our barley growers as another aspect of our broader community. Indeed they suffer the same challenges around water availability around the globe. There’s always too much, or too little. We have worked with our growers to provide support, tools, education and share best practice around how they can harness when there is too much, and be efficient when too little.

Blog About What…Let us Know Your Interest

Greetings for 2013 from the Molson Coors Community Blog. @MolsonFerg here. based in Canada. I’ve been involved with this blog in one way shape or form from its start back in 2007. We tended to speak all things community in Canada and have enjoyed being engaged and involved with so many of our community partners and projects through the blog. It has also been a great platform for our employees to shout out or for us to shout out about the great work that our employees do in their communities. We migrated “location” of the blog to the Molson Coors central web site a year ago. Since then I must admit that the Canadian team has held back on some of our posts, given that they might have felt just a little to Canada centric. Given that our audience now is more global, we felt we needed to be more selective of what we posted, so as not to cause too much spam like content on the blog. We are now in the midst of talking amongst the team on how we are going to utilize the blog to continue to tell stories about community and Molson Coors efforts across our business around the world in areas of corporate responsibility and community engagement.We call this Our Beer Print. SO…we would love to hear from you on what you find interesting, appealing, informing or intriguing by way of this blog. Thanks for taking the time to post some thoughts here or back at me on Twitter or via email. Thanks for your continued interest in Molson Coors and all things beer. Cheers to a great week. @MolsonFerg

2010 – Happy New Year

Four Host First Nations and Molson Coors Canada collector pin

Those three words are like cracking open a fresh cold refreshing beer after a long action orientied day of winter holiday fun and enjoyment.  To hear the words “Happy New Year” is symbolic of starting anew, looking to the twelve months that lay ahead, putting the previous year into the archives. And what a year we have ahead at Molson Coors Canada. Within weeks we will join our colleagues in British Columbia,  on the ground in Vancouver doing the final set up after months of preparation for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.  Molson Canadian, Coors Light and Molson Export are the official beers of the games…that’s pretty exciting for all of us at Molson Coors and we hope that it will be as exciting for our beer drinkers from coast to coast to coast, our customers, families and friends.  Between celebrations and activities at Molson Canadian Hockey House and The Coors Light Hillside Chalet in Whistler…beer drinkers will be sure to enjoy the games with us as they tap into coverage across this great land. As part of our commitment to the games we have worked hard at the Molson Coors brewery in Vancouver to pay attention to our sustainability agenda. We are so proud to have achieved a Sustainability Star.  We have also collaborated with the Four Host First Nations and VANOC to create a commemorative lapel pin with the intent of raising $50,000 to initiative the Vancouver 2010 Aboriginal Youth Legacy Program. Through Molson Canadian and Molson Export Fund A Champion Campaigns we have raised $200,000 in support of ten Olympic and Paralympic aspirigin athletes who represent all regions of the country. We are also delighted that Jennifer Botterill from Canada’s Womens’ hockey team, joined the Molson Coors team to help support us in spreading the message for Responsible Choices throughout the year. Yes…2010 is going to be one terrific year and we look forward to raising a glass to the world as Canada celebrates bringing the games to Vancouver British Columbia in 2010.  Best wishes to all for an awesome 2010. Molson Coors looks forward to delivering some amazing programs with our exciting portfolio of brands in Canada and all while continuing to engage in the greater community in which we live work and play.  We look forward to connecting with you through this community blog and on Twitter and our brand Facebook pages. Cheers ! @MolsonFerg
