Carlsberg Malaysia Targets Net Zero Carbon Across Entire Value Chain By 2040

Carlsberg Malaysia launched its new RSG programme, with additional two priorities and revised targets, which include a roadmap to achieve net zero carbon emissions across the entire value chain by 2040, from the barley in the fields to the beer in hand and pledging support towards the UNSDG Goals,

The Together Towards ZERO initiative has so far delivered its commitment, including a 73% reduction in carbon emissions and 31% reduction in water use per hectolitre of beer brewed this year against 2015, as well as advocated responsible consumption to over 10,000 consumers and achieved over 1,300 days of LostTime Accidents-free over the last three years.

The expanded programme includes a wider array of ESG priorities focusing on achieving six ZEROs, which are categorised into ZERO Carbon Footprint, ZERO Farming Footprint, ZERO Packaging Waste, ZERO Water Waste, ZERO Irresponsible Drinking and ZERO Accidents Culture.

“Our aim is to enable consumers to enjoy a great beer whilst leaving the smallest carbon footprint possible. To do this, we leave no stone unturned, from the grains and water that we brew with, to the recycling of empty bottles and cans once you’ve enjoyed your beer,” stated Stefano Clini, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.

The brewer has taken various steps a the plant in order to be more eco-conscious, some green investments made recently include the purchase of 18 fully electric forklifts to replace the diesel-powered and LPG units, there is also the zero use of coal at the brewery, using only natural gas and biogas from its Wastewater Treatment Plant, and its on-target schedule to achieve zero waste to landfills by the end of 2022.

As for zero packaging, 92% of returnable glass bottles in Peninsular Malaysia are reused or recycled under the Distributor Return Scheme, equivalent to about 100,000 bottles a day. Additionally, 100% of the cans, shrink and stretch wraps and corrugated cardboard disposed of in the brewery are recycled.

Last but not least, Carlsberg’s ZERO Accidents Culture, which focuses on the welfare and safety of employees has seen an achievement of more than 1,300 days of ZERO Lost-Time Accidents since January 2019 and counting.
