Our purpose has always been clear - Brewing for a Better Today and Tomorrow. This means the pursuit of perfection every day as we strive to brew better beers that stand at the heart of moments that bring people together. It also means we do not focus merely on short-term gains, but work towards a sustainable future for our business, stakeholders, and the communities we operate in.
We also believe a healthy business ensures that profitability and sustainability co-exist in harmony, which is why we have embedded sustainability into our corporate strategy, SAIL’22 via the two enablers - ‘Create a Winning Culture’ and ‘Defend our License to Operate’.
Ultimately it sets us towards our vision of becoming a successful, professional and attractive brewer in the markets we operate in.
AMBITIONS & TARGETS TOWARDS ZERO
Together Towards ZERO is our global sustainability programme, devised by Carlsberg Group with the support of leading global experts using a science-based approach. It is an ambitious programme that is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
Our four major ambitions – ZERO Carbon Footprint, ZERO Water Waste, ZERO Irresponsible Drinking and a ZERO Accidents Culture – have been set with clear and measurable targets for 2022 and 2030 respectively. Together, the four ambitions focus particularly on the environmental and social pillars of our operations with our economic contributions forming the foundation of our sustainability efforts.
We seek to form strong collaborations with experts and partners to deliver our KPIs and engage with our stakeholders regularly to gather feedback and ideas for improvements. We aspire to create an ecosystem of continuous improvements that extend beyond our people to include our suppliers and business partners throughout our value chain, aligning all towards our common sustainability goals.

TOWARDS FULL SUSTAINABILITY
The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are ambitious goals for a more sustainable world and call on governments, civil society, businesses and the general public to act to end poverty, reduce inequality and reduce climate change by 2030. The SDGs are interconnected, share equal importance and within each goal occupy a number of targets and topics.
Our Together Towards ZERO programme focuses on SDG goals and targets that are relevant to our business and where we can have the greatest influence and impact. It also correlates with Bursa Malaysia’s Economic, Environment and Social (EES) pillars, which in turn are aligned to SDGs 3, 6, 7, 8 and 13, which advocate good health and wellbeing, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, and climate action.
Our ‘Reuse, Reduce, Recycle and Rethink’ (4R) programme supports SDG 12, which aims, amongst others, at substantial reduction in waste generation by 2030 through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
Our sustainability approach mirrors SDG 17, which promotes partnerships for the goals, by increasing the involvement of relevant stakeholders in our TTZ programmes.
