2016 Sustainability Report available now

Welcome to our 2016 sustainability report. This is our third sustainability report and the year has produced many achievements we are very proud of, along with some continued challenges for us to focus on.
We continue to align our approach with HEINEKEN’s strategy, Brewing a Better World, which began in 2012. The strategy outlines HEINEKEN’s long-term approach for creating shared, sustainable value for both business and stakeholders. It outlines six priority areas: protecting water resources, reducing CO2 emissions, sourcing sustainably, advocating responsible consumption, promoting health & safety and growing with communities.

Key elements of our report include:
• The big picture – here you’ll find a background to the DB Breweries business, our sustainability strategy, governance and our materiality assessment to prioritise the issues most important to our stakeholders and to our continued business success. 
• Performance information for each of our priority areas.
• Case studies to illustrate initiatives that we’ve undertaken in each area.
• HEINEKEN’s global sustainability commitments for 2020.

The 2016 Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) ‘G4’ Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (G4). The guidelines have been applied at a ‘Core’ level.
