SABMiller is one of the world’s largest brewers, with more than 200 beer brands and some 70,000 employees in over 75 countries. We are also one of the world’s largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products. We’ve become a global leader by excelling locally - nurturing strong, local brands and building brand portfolios that meet the needs of consumers in each of our markets. We’ve created leading positions in both emerging and developed markets across the world, and have grown through a culture of operational excellence, delivering high quality products, innovation and sustainable growth. We believe that our business is not separate from society, and that the success of SABMiller is inextricably linked to the well-being of the wider community. Everywhere we operate, we’re working to build strong local businesses that contribute to their local economies. That’s what makes us global leaders in doing business locally. The SABMiller water strategy is based on the 5Rs (pRotect, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Redistribute), a comprehensive, risk-based approach to managing water in our business and in the value chain. This model provides a consistent approach, recognising the different local issues and circumstances faced by each of our businesses. The 5 Rs enable each of our operations around the world to focus on specific issues upstream, downstream and in within our operations to seek to: • pRotect: Influence farmers to ensure responsible water use and understand the watersheds we operate breweries and bottling plants within. Where appropriate replenish water resources through rainwater harvesting and groundwater recharge. • Reduce: Employ new processes and change behaviour to reduce water consumption within our plants whilst achieving the same high quality of product • Reuse: Collect waste water streams within facilities and re-use appropriately • Recycle: Investigate and employ new technologies to recycle water for appropriate use within the plant • Redistribute: Provide local communities with clean water through community investment programmes and treat waste water so it can be used for irrigation or other purposes.
